Who it’s for:
This course is for anyone interested in working alongside others to improve their ability to take still life photographs using techniques that don’t need a lot of additional equipment. Participants need a basic understanding of how to use the controls on their camera to focus, select shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings. Any camera that allows user control of these setting can be used.
What you’ll learn:
You will learn about the skills in the pre-visualising and planning of a still life picture to achieve the desired effect. You’ll also explore building a set-up, considering background, middle and foreground; using natural and artificial light, adding reflectors and techniques to modify the lighting; depth of field, exposure and colouration to determine the final outcome; and paying attention to details of positioning, lighting, shadows and mood of the picture created.
