Tabletop Still Life Photography

In-Person Workshop at National Camera

Sponsored by Tamron


Join us for an immersive Tabletop Still Life Photography Workshop at National Camera on Saturday, February 3rd, sponsored by Tamron. Led by knowledgeable Natcam instructors, this hands-on workshop is designed to enhance your photography skills and ignite a fresh appreciation for still life art.


Workshop Overview: We will begin the workshop with a brief introduction into the key elements of still life compositions and a live demonstration of essential techniques. The demonstration will cover various aspects, including composition, styling, and the use of different lenses for optimal results. You will learn how to manipulate natural and artificial light sources to achieve desired moods, and discover the art of arranging objects to convey a narrative or evoke emotion. Following the demonstration you will put your newfound knowledge into action during the hands-on portion of the workshop. Engage with a carefully curated selection of tabletop setups, each designed to challenge and inspire your creative instincts. Experiment with different props, textures, and backgrounds to capture still life scenes that reflect your unique perspective. Our instructors will be available to provide personalized guidance, answer questions, and offer tips to help you refine your skills.

This hands-on workshop is designed for photographers of all levels, from beginners to seasoned enthusiasts seeking to refine their skills in the realm of still life photography. At the end of this workshop, you will have gained a solid understanding of the principles of still life photography and the confidence to apply these skills to your own projects. Both digital and film cameras are welcome.


Tamron Loaner Gear: Tamron Rep, Mike Pazandak will be joining us for this workshop with a selection of lenses available for participants to try out during the hands-on portion of the workshop. Mike will have a variety of lenses available for mirrorless cameras and a limited selection for DSLR cameras. Please note: You must have a valid photo ID to check out Tamron loaner lenses.
