Practical Talk: Directing Still Lives

Practical Talk: Directing Still Lives

Set designer and still life stylist Annette Masterman is joined by photographer and director Leandro Farina to discuss the makings of a great still life. Whether you’re a small brand eager to create impactful visuals to highlight product or an artist looking to advance your practice, this is your chance to channel your inner Irving Penn and learn how to direct still lives.

Drawing from their extensive portfolios, our speakers will cover lighting, styling, composition, colour, essential considerations when navigating the realms of commercial VS artistic still life photography, and much more.

Still lives bridge the gap between fashion and fine art photography, transforming regular objects into dynamic scenes full of colour, dimension and texture. They speak to wide audiences and enable photographers to shoot without models (and perhaps save budget while doing so).
