I love still life photography and one of my favorite bits of it is prop shopping. I love looking for interesting things to inspire me at the antique store. I almost am looking for things that jump out at me and practically jump into my cart. Things so inspiring that I know I'll regret leaving it if I don't buy it right then. Things that I can immediately imagine the set I can come up with to use it in. The story I can tell. I enjoy coming up with creative sets and I can't wait to share with you today's setup all about vintage ribbons, spools, and bobbins I have collected.
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 and a few props to tell your story.
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 -You can do 2 directions - 1 straight on and one from above... or you can do 2 images that 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 styling.
