This class will be hosted by Elicia Goh, the found of Barely Legal Burgers, and here's a bit about her.
Before launching Barely Legal Burgers, Elicia was managing the social media accounts of six restaurants, and also curated their content. She did everything in the book: Elicia styled their food, shot their photos, edited the photos, and even replated dishes in order to get the perfect mouth-watering photograph. Throughout this journey, Elicia realised how important food visuals are, and that making her photos look enticing through the lens played a vital role in engaging with a brand's followers. From that point, Elicia experimented with various techniques as she started up her own burger business. During the process, she came to terms that she wasn't as equipped as a restaurant, and didn't have as many resources. So, she learnt how to work with what she had to make her photos look just as good as any name-brand restaurant. The results of her photography have led to events that were advertised solely through social media being sold out in a matter of days, her customers praising that her food looks just like the photographs. Her work speaks for itself:
