Still Life Photography Class
Introducing Still Life Photography with a twist. We will be learning how to set up a still life and how to light it. Including strobe lighting, LED lighting, using Gels and Light Painting for more dramatic looks. Using Diffusers and reflectors to control how the light hits the still life. In addition we will be making parts of our still life glow in various ways.
Meet us in the Grant Foreman Room at the Muskogee Library.
There will be numerous items available for everyone to choose from, but if you have something that you would like to bring to add to your still life, please do so.
In this way, everyone will hopefully end up with a unique still life image.
Sign up for the class on Meetup!
