Table Top Photography Workshop
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.
It is also thought that for such shoots, one needs high end studio lighting equipment. It is true. However, such equipment is necessary for very high quality shoots. For most practical purposes, one can close in to nearly 90% quality with normal equipment.
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.
