Class Description

Taking dynamic still life shots is easier than you think — all you need is a table, some white plastic, and a few other commonly-found materials. Award-winning New York Times photographer Andrew Scrivani will show you how to make your own light table and capture beautiful images of food, products, and other still materials.

Whether you’re photographing for commercial clients or yourself, this 90 minute DIY Light Table workshop will show you a crafty way to start today.

This is so relevant and inspiring. It makes me want to go and build a light table and start shooting straightaway.


An awesome little course. I had been just about to throw out an odd size piece of plexi when i saw this course. 20 minutes of work later and i have made my lightbox and am shooting really neat images.

For a shorter-form class, this gets right to the point with practical information; and Andrew indulges the audience questions enough for us to see some creative experimentation with the final product.
