Still life photography in this lay down style isn’t as easy as it looks especially if you’re doing it properly, not with your iPhone camera and Instagram. I’ve shot a fair few still life shots for my day job and it’s always a harder task than I initially expected as you’ve got to the products in line, all the spacing has to be equal and the most importantly visible to the viewer’s eyes so you’ve got to angle it just right. As well as that, shooting from above requires an extra set of kit to stabilize your camera. I’m still coming to grips with having my camera face down from above, on a tripod – what if it fell? £5000 on the floor just like that! *gulps* More on the reverse.
