Meet Olukunle Tanimowo. He is a novice photographer from Lagos, Nigeria. Like the rest of us, Tanimowo found himself exploring his interests during the COVID-19 lockdown. In an interview with Bored Panda, he says that he always wanted to delve deeper into photography. So, with a lot of enthusiasm, a smartphone, household items, and a few friends, he got to work.

The first “campaign” he and his friends created featured Nestle Milo Chocolate Milk. The set-up is simple. They made use of a white paper background and home items as props. As for camera and editing equipment, all Tanimowo used was a smartphone and Adobe Lightroom. The result? A layout you could find in magazines.

Tanimowo never expected his newfound interest to gain a lot of attention. After tweeting his work on his own Twitter page, another user named Dirmax tweeted photos of his work. The next thing he knew, his work had gone viral.
