Still life is an important part of the visual dialogue of fashion, while as a genre it combines imagination with innovative techniques, inspiring photographers such as Irving Penn, Raymond Meier etc. to express their creativity through objects and become pioneering image makers in the field of fashion. Whether it is for campaigns, e-shops, magazines or advertisements, the photographer, in order to be competitive, must turn the simplest product into a masterpiece of high aesthetics that will reach targeted audiences.
In this special workshop, Lefteris Siarapis will reveal step by step some of the most effective ways of lighting for fashion objects and accessories. He will give practical advice and will show lighting techniques for clothes, bags, shoes, glasses, jewelry and much more, on a white background and in compositions. During each day, students will perform a series of specific tasks to practice equipment management, as well as the techniques taught.
Participants will understand the production process, the importance of styling and will gain the knowledge and confidence needed to develop their own ideas later in a commercial photo shoot.
