Tabletop Photo Studio

The camera.

Pretty much any digital camera will do. If it has macro capabilities then all the better. Having macro capabilities will provide more flexibility when photographing flowers or other smaller objects. When shooting always remember to set the ISO to its lowest possible setting and to set your white balance setting to CLOUDY or to a setting that accurately reflects the light source that you will be using. Never leave this setting in AUTO as this may not produce consistent or accurate results. Another item that would be really nice would be a remote shutter release but it is not essential as most digital cameras have self timers built in.

The tripod.

Use a tripod that is easy to move and adjustable. It also needs to be sturdy enough to support the camera equipment that you will be using. Typically, the heavier the camera means the heavier the tripod. Your tripod should have an adjustable head that will allow you to quickly switch from landscape to portrait, and visa versa, with little effort.

Compact Photo Studio

The camera room must be able to accommodate large families, various groups and the typical wedding party with bride and groom. These demands require a background wall of at least sixteen feet wide for a group portrait without wall shadows. The background wall can be covered with floor to ceiling drapes of a solid color in a muted shade. Colors that have worked well in the past are gray/green, light gray, blue/gray and wine red. The drapes should part in the middle to expose most of the back wall which will be artistically painted in tones of brown, gray, and beige with accents of apple green and rose red. The drapes should extend six feet along the left and right walls for extremely large groups. A curved bracket will eliminate the corner. If a rear exit exists in the back wall, a false wall can be built with a door to the extreme side for rear access. This door will be hidden by the drapes and the area behind the wall can be utilized for frames, ready orders and back up equipment.

Since the camera lens sweeps a triangular area, the dead spot to the left can

Jewelry Photography

Taking Green Screen Fantasy Photos

In the world of green screen photography, there is the fantasy-theme option known as “sword and sorcery.” This includes the well-known game Dungeons and Dragons, and stories such as “Lord of the Rings.” To shoot these fantasy-theme photos, pose the client dressed in a period costume in front of a green screen, holding a “weapon” or prop such as a sword, bow and arrow, or a magic wand. Then, add digital background scenery such as breathtaking views of nature or ancient architectural structures — especially castles. And here’s a tip: If the client wants to come across in the photo with a soft, mystical look, fasten a piece of nylon to your camera lens with a rubber band. Instant dreamy mystery.

Science fiction is another widely used fantasy-theme choice. Common settings for this genre would come from Star Trek, Star Wars and Babylon Five.

Photo Card Picture Taking

Lighting is everything. You can easily tell a professional photo by the quality of the lighting. Paying close attention to lighting will greatly enhance your photograph. Plan to take your picture outdoors, or use professional photo studio if you must be indoors. Avoid taking a picture at night. If you are inside your home, take a picture during the day in a well-lit room.

Outdoors, look for even lighting-overcast days actually work the best if the sky is not an important element in your photograph. If the sun is shining, make sure it is not behind your subjects-it should be lighting them as directly as possible in their faces.

As you look at the shot through the viewfinder or LCD monitor on your camera, pay attention to odd or unflattering shadows on your subjects. It’s perfect appropriate to use a flash outdoors to “fill in” harsh shadows. If you want to take a picture like a pro, bring along a mylar sun shade for your car. Place it at the feet of the cameraman aimed back at the photo subjects to “bounce” light and fill in shadowy areas in the frame.

Shoot Studio Quality Prints Using Natural Lighting

Make Your Own Reflectors

One of the keys to studio lighting is “bouncing” the light off of reflectors or umbrellas to create full, soft, and even light. Although you do need a few lights to do this properly, you can still mimic the effect by making a few homemade reflectors. If you need help softening the shadows created by one main light source (like the sun), you can reflect the light by using white surfaces like a large white poster board or a big piece of Styrofoam or even a white bed sheet.

Start Painting

Whenever you go to shoot, always remember that all surfaces either reflect or absorb light so keep this in mind especially when designing a room for taking pictures. If you know you’re not able to add a bunch of lights to a room, try painting the entire thing white (even the floor, if possible). Having your walls white, they will help to bounce the light around so you’ll have a more even look.

Watch Your Time
