#TipTuesday - Still Life Photography.
• Work your angles-
Play around with different perspectives while you are on shoot by switching up your angles and heights. If you take every single photograph from the same point of view, chances are you are going to be disappointed with the end result. Changing your perspective allows you to create a collection of images that are inspiring to both you and your audience.
• Choose your backdrop carefully-
When you’re deciding what backdrop to use, think of contrasting subjects. If you have a neutral product such as soap, do you want it monochrome with a tan wall in the back, or do you want it to pop against a black, slate textured piece of tile? Your individual photography style will help dictate the direction you'd like your still photography to take.
A set of expensive studio lights aren't always necessary. Use standard table lamps to start, testing out the positioning of the subject. For example, side and back lighting will add visual interest, shadows and depth versus shooting an object straight on.
