View from Above: Flat Lay Styling for Products
Limited Capacity full

Knowing how to style and photograph scenes from above can elevate one's photography and open up opportunities for magazine work and content creation for brands. While some sets have various individuals in distinct roles (e.g., creative director, prop stylist, photographer), there are other situations where the photographer will be called upon to play all roles. Thus, having confidence in styling one's own images is key. Plus, photographers can use these types of images for their own client guides, websites, or social media pages. In this interactive session, Kimberly Murray will discuss and demonstrate the tools and techniques that make flat lay styling easier and how to use layering, color, and texture to create more dynamic images. In addition, she will discuss the importance of choosing the best backgrounds to set the scene and how to make or source them.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn key composition elements to create dynamic images
- Learn where to source backgrounds
- Learn how to create at least three different versions of images using the same props to get the most out of their styling session
- Learn how to shoot to print magazine specifications to allow room for copy

Flip the Switch: Changing Your Lighting Scenario to Fit Your Flat Lay Needs
Limited Capacity seats available

It is often said that natural light is the "best" light to shoot since photographers can create beautiful images with soft, even light. But what if the light is either changing too quickly resulting in inconsistencies across images, is not ideal for one's creative vision, or is not available? In those instances, it might be time to consider using studio lighting to achieve similar results. Join Kimberly Murray as she discusses alternatives to natural light, specifically strobes, speedlights, and LEDs, and how to use them in overhead photography. In addition, she will demonstrate the placement of the light source, and how modifiers can be used to create different moods. This session will take place indoors. You should be familiar with shooting in manual mode.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn the benefits of artificial light
- Learn how different types of artificial light can be used either in place, of or alongside, natural light
- Learn how to mimic natural light with a strobe
- Learn how to combine strobes with negative fill to create "moody" images
