How & why we set out to cre­ate some fine art pho­tos

Practical Photography (UK) - - Fine Arts At Home -

It’s not al­ways prac­ti­cal to be out­doors dur­ing the win­ter months, when tem­per­a­tures plum­met and day­light hours are at a premium. So we thought it was a great op­por­tu­nity to stay in the warm and have some fun cre­at­ing in­spi­ra­tional fine art projects that any­one can achieve on a do­mes­tic ta­ble-top. We armed our­selves with an en­try-level DSLR and kit lens combo, with the only ad­di­tional ac­ces­sory be­ing a tri­pod – no spe­cial­ist or ex­pen­sive kit needed here. We used nat­u­ral light and a sim­ple house­hold lamp for il­lu­mi­na­tion, and ev­ery­thing we pho­tographed can be found around the home or pur­chased eas­ily and with very lit­tle fi­nan­cial outlay.
