This course will teach you how to capture the beauty of an object in a photograph.

It blends theoretical and practical learning and will appeal to anyone interested in the art of creating still life images and the aesthetics of compositions.

Still life photography can bring inanimate objects to life.

On this course you'll explore storytelling through different compositions and learn how to work with props and lighting to entice the viewer.

You'll approach photography from a fine art perspective, giving your work a creative outlet that will appeal to a range of audiences.

On this course, you will:

improve your understanding of digital photography and the manual settings of your camera
learn about studio lighting
discuss the still life work of photographers and artists through history and into contemporary culture, and look at how they may inform the direction your work takes
experiment with abstract shapes, colours and textures through compositions and framing
use editing tools such as Photoshop to enhance and manipulate your images
develop a personal style to your photography
take part in regular individual and group critiques for your own development
create inspiring still life images that have both an aesthetic and technical quality.
What will you gain?

By the end of the course, you'll have a portfolio of unique fine art images, the knowledge and experience of how to plan a shoot in a studio setting and ideas about how to continue your still life photography in the future.

Level: Beginner

Entry requirement: You should have some knowledge of using your digital camera in manual mode.
