For our second ‘Working to a photography brief’ challenge, Karl tasked members with photographing a bottle of red wine on a grey background (an image based on one of his own previous shots).
In this live show, Karl reviewed each of the submissions and offered his feedback on the results. Some of the challenges members faced included achieving the correct lighting on both sides of the bottle; creating the desired mood; and achieving the correct perspective. Throughout the show, Karl offered tips and advice for interpreting and executing professional photography briefs such as this — a key skill for any photographer.
Designed to be achievable with studio lights or natural light, Karl also demonstrated how he achieved his own natural light version of the image using a large window, some diffusion and white card.
