Setting the stage works to help convince the viewer of a place and time or mood. Small details make a shot believable. These lessons will teach you how to think and tell a story of a certain place in time. Picking the right props for your shoot will ensure believability. The lessons in this section work in conjunction with the Product Photography section.

A still life photographer can be found working in a studio or on location. This type of photography demands the recreation of a set or going to the set to capture a moment in time. This can be done on location, in the studio, or digitally created on the computer. The truth is, it fits into many categories. It is more than product photography. You are creating a scene that conveys a sense of being somewhere.

Still life scenes are often used in a designer's set, or in a showroom, like in a furniture store. They can also be used to convey a story quickly and help transfer the concept and idea throughout the entire image. These lessons include tips on how to light objects in small and detailed areas. They will help you pull your entire learning experience together. I include details and diagrams that will reinforce your understanding.

These lessons assume you have a basic understanding of photography. If not, please refer to the Camera Basics page.
