Learn how to create beautiful, professional-quality visual content for your business from the comfort of your own home with the help of our photography studio course.
Set up Your “Set”
Setting up a photography studio at home can be convenient and cost-effective, as well as breaking down the barriers that keep you from showcasing your products to your audience. You might find that your studio setup enables you to translate content ideas and inspo from your head into real-world, social media posts faster than if you were waiting on a studio schedule.
Determine the best natural light for your space.
The ideal area for your art studio will have lots of natural light. A good location for a photographer’s studio is in a room with plenty of natural light.
Set your design.
Once you have found a space with good lighting, designate a small portion of the space for your “set”. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. You can use a kitchen/bathroom counter, a stool in the middle of a room, etc. When starting out, you can use your wall’s natural colour as a backdrop. However, you may want to experiment with different fabrics and backgrounds to add character to your photos. The use of bedsheets as a backdrop has been growing in popularity lately. To add dimension to your shots, try adhering sheets of masking tape to the wall behind your subject.
Shine Your Light on This
Although you’ve found a room with great natural light, an extra pop of light will help the details of your products to really stand out. Many content creators and influencers use ring lights for their continuous and balanced lighting.
Set your tripod up with specific goals in mind.
Once your scene is set up, place your tripod in position to determine the exact framing and angles. A tripod with a multi-angle centre column can be used to achieve flat-lay shots. Take a moment to think about the needs of your Instagram feed. When creating Instagram images, consider how they will be used on the platform. Vertical images are best for the Instagram feed, while square images are better suited for Instagram Stories. Landscape images can be used in banners on your profile.
