As most of you already know, apart from a designer, I am also a photographer. Photography has a lot of categories and fields. Which means that even if you already know the basics of photography, you may get a bit lost when it comes to photographing a product or an interior.
Also, I think that being able to set up and take a nice photography, for example, to create a mock-up, is very interesting also for designers. And that is why I decided to share with you this quick and basic guide to interior and product photography by Brittany Goldwyn.
I discovered Brittany a while ago when looking for some DIY projects for my new apartment. Her photos, always bright and clean, got my attention from the very beginning, and I was very excited when she decided to create this basic tutorial.
The tutorial is divided into 8 parts, starting with the very basics of photography and finishing with a basic tutorial of photo editing with Lightroom.
Note: If you already know the basic concepts of photography, you can skip directly to the number 6 and 7 😉
