This will be LAST Dark and Moody Still Life Workshop for 2019!

Join me, Julie Powell, for a fun-filled afternoon in the studio to learn and create gorgeous Still Life image, in both Natural Light and Artificial Light. The essence of dark and moody (and soft & dreamy) is learning to work in minimal light, dramatic shadows and incredible details.

We will be working with small and intimate subjects from sumptuous fruit and gorgeous flowers. All items for subject, props, lighting and staging are supplied, you only need your camera gear.

This workshop will cover the basics in lighting, staging, camera settings and styling for Still Life with topics discussed:

  • Dark and Moody - adding atmosphere

  • Get off Auto - get confident in Manual and Aperture Priority Modes

  • Artificial & Subtle Natural Lighting - learn to harness the light


  • DSLR camera or Mirrorless camera, as long as you can change lenses. Also, bringing your manual is a good idea if you aren't overly familiar with your camera.

  • a 35-50mm lens or 24-70mm is suitable

  • tripod (a must)

  • remote shutter release (wireless or cabled) - optional

  • spare battery

  • SD Cards.

This is a three-hour workshop, limited to 6 people so that we can all get very hands-on. it is more structured than Springtime at the Potterage, and would suit beginner as well as intermediate photographer well. If you are just wanting to try your hand, this is THE perfect class for YOU!

Cost is $60.00.

If you have any questions at all, send me a message!
