Still Life Composition and Lighting

Speaker: Rich Russo

Still life photography can be a highly satisfying domain for photographers, yet it’s one that relatively few amateurs explore. This introductory class covers the basics—from lighting to composition to styling—that are used in the studio to create high impact shots of food and other stuff. The techniques discussed in this class have application to many other genres of photography.

With both demo and slide show, Rich covers the use of:

• Flash (strobe and hot-shoe)
• Light modifiers
• Metering
• Concept and composition
• Food and prop styling
• Background materials
