Specifically designed to be achievable whether you’re working from home or have access to a studio, these challenges are a great way to try something new and also connect with other members.
This week's challenge is...
How to get creative
We’re giving you a real challenge this week — watch photography! Notoriously tricky subjects to photograph, shooting watches often requires precision as well as patience. The good news, though, is that they don’t always require as much equipment as you might initially think. Even if you only have one light, you can create stunning watch photography if you understand light and how to control it.
In addition to your lighting, you’ll have to think about what background you use, your choice of props (if any), composition, camera settings, and lens choice. With product photography like this, the aim is always to ensure the product is the hero. For more tips and ideas, take a look at some of the watch photography classes below or take a look at our other product photography classes.
About the challenge
We’d love for all our members to get involved in our weekly challenges, but to ensure everyone gets maximum benefit from these, there are a few guidelines...
- Members can submit any one image (taken at any time) for the challenge but in the spirit of the challenge we encourage you to post images taken during the week. A second image can be uploaded to show this (i.e with your phone in shot with the date showing).
- All images submitted to our Facebook group will be displayed in a members gallery on Karl Taylor Education.
- Images should be 3000px on the longest side.
