Table Top Photography

Table Top Photography is a special type of photography that deals with setups with artificial lighting for shooting still life subjects.
Table Top is a very broad genre that includes many variants like Product Ad shoots, Online Product Catalogue shoots, Food Photography, to name a few.
Each of these sub types have something unique to them, though on a broader level, they all fall under the same category of  Table Top Photography.

In line with Sheil’s Photography motto, that is spreading the art of photography, the workshop teaches techniques with regular equipment and DIY setups for achieving high quality outputs.
The short courses or workshops in photography are great way to increment self-paced learning at convenient timings.
Weekend learning makes it easy for everyone to participate.
