In our 14th Working to a Brief assignment, we tasked Visual Education members with an exciting challenge: recreating one of Karl's classic images, featuring a bottle and a glass white wine. This particular brief offered a unique twist – it was based on a live photoshoot, allowing members to closely follow Karl’s expert guidance, step by step. The outcome? An impressive collection of images that reached an exceptionally high standard, ready for Karl and Emma’s discerning critique.
As we delved into each submission, we observed some common hurdles that participants encountered as they tackled this detailed brief. One of the primary challenges was dealing with lens flare, which cast a hazy veil over some of the images. Karl shared his insights on mitigating this issue – watch the video for some valuable tips!
Another difficulty that kept popping up related to making the glass stand out distinctly against the pristine white background, avoiding any muddiness. Also essential was perfecting the appearance of the condensation droplets on the glass – crucial to securing a natural and authentic look. Karl offered simple advice for dealing with this challenges.
Which wine images captured the essence of the assignment flawlessly? Which ones required a bit of fine-tuning? Be prepared to uncover invaluable tips and techniques as you watch the critique unfold.
