Tips on photographing a workspace

Photographing your workspace - Lewesian Leathers

Everyone is intrigued by life backstage and workshops are interesting and often beautiful. Adding pictures of your workshop adds depth and interest to your website and makes your audience engage with every aspect of what you do 

Most workshops will have reasonable light so all you need is a tripod and a camera with a self-timer.(a wide-angle lens helps too).   To get that lovely front to back detail, everything sharp, put your camera on aperture priority set to the smallest possible aperture (largest number) and set your shutterspeed accordingly    

I used a fifth of a second at F9 for this (using a wide-angle lens) and the self-timer made sure there was no blur from camera shake

Photographs of tools and materials contribute to the feeling of craftmanship
