In this information packed live photography workshop Karl discusses everything from color theory and how it can enhance your images, to why soft, graduated light isn’t always the best option for product photography.
Photographing a handbag, Karl goes into detail about the importance of color and how it can be used to improve your photography. You’ll see this in clear detail as he uses opposite and complimentary colors to get the very best out of three different shots.
Working with a simple, but slightly unusual lighting setup, Karl produces a stunning shot of a handbag using just bare bulb lights. You’ll learn how to control these lights to achieve almost shadowless light and how you can adapt this setup for a small studio.
Karl also shows you how to freeze movement using fast flash duration and how you can use this to capture more fun and interesting images.
