The importance of light and how to use it
Top composition and angles tips
Styling and props to enhance your images
Editing your images for a consistent look and feel
We'll take a look at camera phones, compact, bridge, mirrorless and DSLR cameras. Tips on using each of them, as well as pros and cons and features to look out for when buying. I'll also share a kit list of the other pieces of equipment I use on a shoot.
Good lighting is fundamental to good photography. We'll look at the principles of lighting as well as how to find the best light at home or in your studio and how to work with light on location.
The use of backgrounds and props are crucial in creating professional looking images that have a consistent look and feel to your brand. I'll be sharing with you how I style as well as my go to prop list.
You'll often hear about the "rules" of photography, and I'm going to take you through these and when it's a good idea to break them, so you can create impactful images of your work.
I'm going to take you behind the scenes of how I photograph a table arrangement, bouquet and buttonhole.
Editing is a crucial part of photography; it's taking a raw ingredient (the image) and turning it in to the professional looking photo you see in portfolios. I will be showing you how to edit on both a phone and a computer.
Who is this course for?
This course is aimed both at professional and hobbyist florists who want to improve the photos they take of their beautiful floral creations.
What kit do I need?
The first module I take you through looks at both cameras and phones, so that you can learn how to use what you already have, as well as providing you with the basic knowledge to buy a new camera should you wish. I'll also share with you the equipment that I use, as well as some household hacks!
What software do I need?
I will be demonstrating how to edit with standard phone editing software, a free computer editing software called Darktable as well as the paid for software professional photographers use called Lightroom.
