WAIC: Tabletop Studio Photography

Saturday, March 10, 2018

This class will take you through the process of using a small, portable tabletop studio "softbox" which we will practice using with both natural window light and simple studio lights. During the first portion of this workshop, we will put together our softboxes and set up a tabletop tripod and small studio lights. We will mount different colored fabrics inside the softbox to create seamless backgrounds for photographing products, artwork, jewelry, flowers or other small items that are under 22" in any dimension. Once our setup is established, we will use it to photograph a variety of different objects, experimenting with both natural light and studio light conditions. We'll begin with some easy, non-reflective objects and then move on to more challenging shiny objects. After working together on a few of the same objects, you are welcome to photograph your own objects. If you choose not bring your own, there will be plenty of practice items available to photograph.
