Working in the studio using various backdrops, props & surfaces, learn to style and photograph food, flowers and found objects & create captivating still lifes. Design concepts, natural light, color & texture, equipment, camera techniques and post- production using Lightroom will be covered. Students will start off working together on a group still life, creating the set and learning the decision- making processes involved before branching off to their own tabletop. Lessons learned can be applied towards personal work as well as commercial assignments.  A field trip to a local farmers market to scout for great subjects will start off the two-day studio experience.

All levels are welcome. Bring a laptop for editing (with charger), a camera you are comfortable with (extra battery and cards), tripod, cable release, and macro lens. If you don’t have these items, the school can provide you with a variety of lenses, tri-pods & cameras.
