*NEW* Tabletop Photography


Adult Activities and Classes / Special Interest & Trips -
Winter 2024

Whether you are a seller, collector, crafter or just looking for something to photograph, this workshop will get your creative juices flowing. There is a big difference between simply putting an item on a tabletop or counter and taking a few photos and properly staging and lighting a subject. The best part is that it does not need to be overly complicated or require a large investment in equipment. Any type of camera will work (yes, even phone cameras), and sets can be created using simple low cost or even free materials. All it takes is a little creativity, understanding light, and experimenting with different compositions. This workshop is designed to be a full, hands-on activity that follows the approach of short discussions followed by shooting exercises. We have found this to be an excellent way to reinforce the class concepts.

Course covers: Building a set, working with light (direction, basic lighting set-ups, chiaroscuro lighting, and working with shiny and clear objects), staging (adding support subjects, capturing attention), and equipment suggestions (working with a budget, camera set-up). Examples will be shared to explain the concepts to assist in understanding how this will apply to photos you want to take. You are encouraged to bring your own objects to photograph. There will also be subjects available to use for practice if you don’t want to bring items along.
