Photography Challenge - Week 22

27 May - 2 June

Getting outside your comfort zone and experimenting with different subjects is one of the best ways to learn and develop new skills in photography. We’ve got 52 weeks of photography challenges to help inspire you – view the full list of challenges here.

This week's challenge is...

Chair product photography


When last did you look at, really look at, the chair you sit on? An everyday object that we often overlook, their design and textures often make for very interesting subject material. But what’s the best way to go about highlighting the interesting details, various textures, and deliberate shapes?

For this challenge, you’ll need to carefully consider your lighting and background. The lighting will be key to showing off the shape and texture of the product, while the background choice will help ensure the product stands out. As with any shot, a little thought and planning will go a long way in helping you determine what you want to produce and how you’re going to achieve the desired result. The classes below may offer some information and guidance.
