Day 21 is here. Another catch up day.
This week we focused on prop styling and food styling.
Were these lessons helpful? Did you complete all the assignments?
Food styling and Prop styling is a very crucial part of creating great photos and after the 30 Day challenge is over we’ll cover more on these topics. There is a lot to learn in these two areas and we will go back to detailed tutorial formats after this challenge.
If this week you weren’t able to keep up with the lessons, take some time today and get back on track.
Here’s what we talked about this past week –
Now before you begin today’s assignment, read this completely.
As part of one of the assignment, it is important for you to understand what you’ve been struggling with this past week. By understanding your challenges, finding solution becomes easy. So when we ask you about your challenges, word of caution – don’t write the first thing that comes to mind.
Yes, if I ask you what did you struggled with in terms of prop styling, the quickest answer could be, “I didn’t know what to do?” Remember that usually the first answer is not really the heart of the problem. If you say, “I didn’t know what to do?” ask again, what exactly did I not know? Was it the placement of where to place the props? Was it how to select the props? What specifically was it?
Identify your specific challenges and write it down in the space provided.
Let’s look at the assignment in detail -
Time estimated – 15-20 mins
Today again, there are three specific tasks for completing today’s assignment.
For each of these tasks, there will be temptation to “just finish it”. Don’t let that voice take over you. Whatever effort you’ve been making, starting this assignment give 200% of that effort. If you’ve been spending 10 mins, starting today spend 15-20 mins. When you think about the challenges, as discussed above, be as detailed as possible. It will help you realize what specifically you are struggling with.
