More about this course

Still life photography is my favorite type of photography. You can set up a space in your own home without the need for a huge studio. We can get creative with our sets and props. And the best part is we can shoot any day all year long no matter the weather outside. I enjoy coming up with creative sets and I can't wait to share with you today's setup.

In this class we'll cover:

  • Some inspiration from past sets I have done with different berries to give you an idea of all the different setups that are possible.
  • Styling your set up near a window for natural light
  • How I supplement the light when it is dark or rainy outside
  • We'll take a look at my setup and talk about options for your props
  • We'll also look at my final photo from this setup and do some editing.

This course is perfect for beginners getting started and needing ideas. It's also great for experienced photographers wanting ideas and tips for doing studio setups.

Required Gear: A camera. You can do still life photography with any camera you have. A few props you want to use for your setup and some berries.

The course project

For your class project, I'd like you to shoot a collection of photos of your setup. Post at least 2 photos from your set - include 1 pull-back image and 1 close-up image of your setup here in the class project. 

Concentrate on getting the best photo out of the camera that you can before you get into editing. Focus on good lighting, exposure, composition, and your styling.
