Project Description

How to get that high-end look to your photos without the high costs.


Getting your images to look professional and high end doesn’t require a lot of expensive photography equipment or big studios. In this project, I’ll show you how to create high end imagery using one camera, some simple props and one flash light in your own living room!

The post editing techniques that I use in Adobe Photoshop are not complex but effective. Paying particular attention to small details, such as removing blemishes can make a big difference to your imagery.


This project is aimed at an intermediate level where you understand the basics of exposure and are familiar with off-camera flash. Take stock of props that you may already have and/or improvise. Post two photos using the method I decribe in this project.
