Still life photography is one of my very favorite types of photography. One of the best things about doing still-life photography is that it can be done in almost any space near a window you have available to you in your own home. No need to go out when it is raining, cold, windy, etc… you can practice your storytelling and photography anytime.
In this class we'll cover:
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. I'll share with you some of my own thoughts and preferred gear that I use to create beautiful artistic images, so you might consider your options after watching the class. And you'll need a few props and some flowers to photograph.
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.
