Photographing Drinks – Still Life Photography Workshop
If you are interested in still life photography or product photography and want to learn how to create striking images of drinks then this workshop is for you. Photographing drinks needs carefully thought out lighting to make the most of the shot. You will need to think about reflections, refraction and other details to refine your work. You will see how various light modifiers make a huge difference to the light patterns.
Photographing drinks will take your still life photography and studio lighting skills to the next level. You will learn to work with single light and multiple light setups. We will work with drinks in glasses and mugs as well as thinking about how to photograph drinks in bottles or cans. Lights and modifiers will be provided. Please bring your own camera and lens(es). A macro lens is advised for close work. Your camera needs to have manual controls (the ability to control aperture, shutter speed & ISO manually) and a hot shoe connection point for the flash trigger.
Your tutor will be Joe Lenton. You can find examples of his still life photography on his Instagram account. Joe’s still life images have won awards as well as being used by businesses to boost their visual presence. You won’t simply have it all set up for you to remember and copy. You will learn how to create your own lighting patterns depending on the effect you want to create. The workshop is limited to just a few participants. Keeping the group this small enables everyone to enjoy a rapid learning environment.
If you are completely new to still life photography then you might like to explore our downloadable video introductory still life photography course. It is helpful if you have some experience working with studio lights before attending this workshop. Do let us know if there is a particular drink you’d like to photograph and we’ll try to fit it in on the evening (you may need to bring it with you for us).
