In a joint project with a downtown Menomonie business, University of Wisconsin-Stout students learned the art of food styling as part of a product photography class and created a legacy for the owner.
Students in the Product Photography class taught by Keif Oss, senior lecturer in the communication technologies department, stylized and photographed cupcakes, brownies and other desserts donated by Marion’s Legacy, a coffee shop near the campus, owned by Marion Shambeau.
“I think the photographs were beautiful,” Shambeau said. “They did a great job. I provided the food, but they created everything around it. They really captured the atmosphere of the shop by the items they added to the photos.” Some of those items included towels, napkins, dishes and a sprig of pine.
