for creating perfect scenes every time, streamlining your photography workflow, and significantly improving your food photography composition skills
"These overlays have been so helpful for improving my composition skills - using them whilst shooting tethered makes it much easier and faster to compose balanced and interesting images. My workflow (especially when doing client work) is a lot more streamlined thanks to this tool! They also encourage me to try compositions that I usually find challenging to work with, so they’re great for when I have time to freestyle a little bit."

Instructions about how to upload them in Lightroom, EOS Utility and Capture One
If you have never used overlays before, I will show you how to upload the overlays into Lightroom, EOS Utility and Capture One.
I have used Lucia's overlays for the last year and I am still using them to improve my photography techniques, especially when I am struggling to create the image I have in mind. It has completely changed the way I approach my planning and shooting process! My compositions kills have been improving considerably along with the impact of my photos. Using the overlays while tethering is a game changer and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to consistently improve their food photography!
I use the PNG Overlays in a different way: every time I shoot tethered, I leave an overlay visible on my image. Based on these overlays, I can then make corrections to my setting, directly and in a convenient way. I used to "manipulate" my images into a pleasant composition. Today, with the use of the overlays, I have everything under control during the shoot. This is very helpful in creating the better images, as well as allowing me to work more efficiently. In fact, I find these overlays so useful that I also use them for my other kind of photography: yesterday, when I was doing portrait photography, I caught myself that the "Dynamic symmetry" overlay was still visible on my image. Based on the overlay, I then gave my model instructions on how to take certain postures. The result: a balanced portrait without looking forced!

Using composition overlays has been a game changer for me and my students, the improvements of their images were significant. They got more confident about applying compositions to simple or more complex scenes, as they knew where to place the main subject and other elements without any doubt.
