At first I would like to thank you for this simple but complete course. I tried my best this morning to create some nice shots with my Canon 650D, a very bright natural light and few things I found in my cupboards !
The 45 degrees view. It gives a nice overview of the scenery. I worked a lot on composition for this first shot.
Details. I followed your advices and shot everything with a 50mm at (around) f:2.8. I focused on berries, had lights and saturation during post-editing. I also added a warmer touch, thanks to temperature and tints settings.
The overhead view. This picture is ready to be posted on my insta ! (However, I don't really like the texture of this old and used table).
The hero shot. It looks a bit like a cereal brand packshot and I like it ;) Even if lights and the atmosphere are different on this particular shot. ThenI quickly edited all these pics on photoshop to give them more sweetness.
You can also have a look on few "before/after" screenshots I made on Lightroom. Enjoy !
