Event Details


Is this for me?

The session is very hands-on, we will be using a fully equipped studio with a range of Broncolour lights, a wide choice of props, backgrounds and accessories. At the end of the session, not only will you gain confidence for shooting in a studio environment, you’ll understand how to shoot at home and you will also walk away with some great images for your portfolio.



What to bring

Please bring any camera that allows full manual control (M on program dial). A DSLR is recommended, however, most of the mirrorless compact systems / micro-four-thirds and bridge cameras should also be suitable. Ideally you will need a tripod and a lens in the range of 50mm – 100mm.




It is assumed that those attending will have a basic knowledge of photography and have an understanding of aperture, shutter speeds and exposure.



Key Learning points:

  • pre-visualizing your still life image and then working towards creating it

  • the art of good still life composition

  • using light controllers, softboxes, reflectors, and other studio equipment

  • choosing your props, creating a visual narrative

  • camera settings for various styles of shooting in a studio environment

  • advice on setting up a home studio

At the end of the day not only you will gain confidence for shooting in a studio environment, but you will also walk away with some great images for your portfolio.
