    Key Points to Remember

    • Props bring an item into context, or to add visual interest with a supportive element that complements the hero.
    • Adds a three-dimensional perspective to flatter two-dimensional work.
    • Turn your flash ?off? for accurate color and to preserve the control of your lighting set up.
    • Set the camera?s white balance to ?tungsten? and use 2-3 200watt soft white lightbulbs to light your set.
    • To avoid camera shake and blurry images, use a tripod, activate the self timer function, prefocus with the shutter release button, wait for the focus confirmation (either green light or audible beep), and use a tripod, along with the camera?s self timer function.
    • Bracket your exposures with exposure compensation, and shoot with the tungsten white balance setting.
