About these classes
Flat lay photography is a popular type of photography that quite simply involves photographing products from above or from a bird’s-eye view.
This type of photography allows for many creative opportunities, including creating balance in an image, experimenting with depth and layers, utilising patterns and textures, or even working with negative space.
Throughout these classes, not only will you get inspirational ideas for your own flat lay photography, but you will also learn about compositional techniques that Karl applies, such as colour theory and product placement to keep the viewer's attention in the image.
Lighting and mood are also important considerations, and Karl teaches numerous lighting setups from two lights to more advanced lighting setups that you can replicate and modify for your own images.
He also demonstrates techniques such as how to create soft light with a point light source, control shadows and reflectivity, use reflectors for product photography, and what lenses are best to use for flat lay photography.
Each of these are small but important details that will give you that creative-edge and can easily be applied to many other types of photography.
