Still Life Photography: Compositions with Organic Elements
Enhance objects from nature by playing with the creative possibilities of studio photography, from set design to shooting and digital editing
Photographer Florie Berger is passionate about touch, feel, and all things organic, which is reflected in her work. Her photos emanate a unique kind of luminosity, with emphasis on geometric shapes, color, and material.
In this Domestika course, Florie gives you all the tips you need to create stunning still lifes by building your own sets and enhancing your shots with editing. By the end, you’ll know the ins and outs of studio photography, and will be able to produce a photo series of still life images featuring three natural settings: limestone rock, a volcanic environment, and the ocean floor.
Start by getting to know Florie Berger. She tells you about her background and her work in photography. She also reveals her sources of inspiration, from painting and sculpture to dance.
Florie goes on to explain how to compose your still life. She helps you find inspiration and define your color palette, then discusses light, angle, and setting.
Get the studio ready and assemble your set before moving on to shooting. Take three series of pictures: one on limestone materials, one on volcanic rock, and another under water. That’s a wrap!
Move on to the post-production of your images. Work on retouching in Photoshop and edit your different series for publication. Get ready to make a name for yourself!
