In this still life photography class, Karl shows you how to create a striking piece of art using very simple ingredients.
After spending some time perfecting his composition, Karl moves on to lighting. To simulate sunlight and achieve a graphical, hard-light effect, he uses a very particular modifier: the Flooter Fresnel attachment.
The Fresnel results are excellent. But Karl also demonstrates how to achieve a very similar effect with a much simpler and more affordable bare-bulb studio light combined with a standard reflector.
You’ll also discover how to use flags to reduce exposure in specific areas, and learn about the properties of collimated light.
In this class:
- Still life photography techniques
- Lighting setups for still life photography
- Flooter Fresnel photography
- Simulating sunlight with a bare bulb
- Advantages of collimated light
- How to use flags in photography
