About This Class

fe723edf

Still life is a fun and fulfilling place to practice your photography skills. You can go at your own pace, there are no limitations as where to take your pictures and the space you require can be as small as a coffee tray (coffee trays come in different sizes of course =) It's versatile and most of all it is not as hard as it may seem, once you know a few tricks about composition, lighting and props. 

In this class I will show you step by step how to set up a beautiful still life picture.

it's a great tutorial for beginners or amateurs who want to upgrade their photos. very straight to the point. doesn't get lost in unnecessary details, well presented with great examples
Mariya gives many helpful tips during this class, I particularly enjoy the pull back images that show her scene set ups and they way she takes us through her thought process during image composition.
Excellent Tutorial. Am learning a lot to aid my love for photographing food.
