This class is the first in a series of still life photography tutorials showing how to shoot creative imagery that could be used for wall art and even stock photography.
In this first class Karl uses a basic food ingredient you’ll find in many households to create a simple flat lay arrangement. As he talks you through his idea you’ll see how he overcomes problems such as creating depth in the image and keeping items in position. He also shows a simple trick for overcoming the effects of the inverse square law when working on such a small scale.
Using just a single light you’ll see how Karl controls the exposure and shadow density as he uses a combination of fill reflectors to create a warm, sunlit feel in the shot.
Ideal for home studio shoots and photographers working in small spaces, this simple shoot is a great way to get creative with minimal equipment and the final result is something you can easily add to your portfolio or even sell.
