The N-Photo ex­perts say…

Here’s what you need to get shots as good as Roberto’s

Keep it sim­ple

Use the kit you have. If that’s an 18-55mm kit lens, you can still achieve great re­sults. It’s a mat­ter of hon­ing your abil­i­ties. Don’t feel that you have to up­grade when you can learn to do more with what you’ve got.

On the cheap

Work­ing with a small bud­get you can still make big pho­tos. Cheap needn’t be nasty. Think of how af­ford­able props, such as the flour and milk Roberto has used, can look on cam­era, and how you can light them ef­fec­tively.

One light

Some pho­tog­ra­phers are fa­mous for us­ing mul­ti­ple flash set ups, or only us­ing the most ex­pen­sive light­ing equip­ment. But as we know from the Teach Your­self Flash se­ries (see page 40), you only need one light to make the shot.

Black and white

Keep things sim­ple and shoot your im­ages with a black and white con­ver­sion in mind. This way, you can fo­cus on the tex­tures in your pho­tos with­out hav­ing to worry about colour cor­rec­tion and bal­anc­ing too many things at once.
