Portrait photography with shadows

Photography Equipment

Lenses, camera bags, filters… This week we’re challenging you to shoot your own photography equipment.

There’s no end to the range of products you could shoot, and there’s definitely no shortage of ways you could get creative. From pack shot-style images of your tripod to more stylised, moody images of your lens, why not use this week to try something new or refine a certain technique?

That’s not to say this week’s theme is without its challenges. You’ll likely have to deal with reflective surfaces, multiple textures and curved shapes. To help you overcome these challenges, take a look at the classes below for tips and information.
