Product Photography Training for Professionals & Businessses – Level 1
If you are running a business online then high quality images of your products are essential. Perhaps you would find it difficult to budget for a professional photographer every time. On our product photography training day you will learn how to get good images using simple, easily repeatable steps. This would also suit professional photographers who would like to start offering or improve their product photography. You will learn the skills you need to get started with good quality product photography.
You will learn & gain experience of:
• Tethered shooting
• Choosing materials for backgrounds
• Controlling light from hard to soft
• Creating hard and soft graduated reflections
• Continuous (LED) lighting and flash lighting
• Shooting products on a white background (packshots)
• Product Photography of a variety of subjects
• Product Photography using just 1 light
• Using reflectors and diffusers
• Retouching for a professional finish
The following video shows demo shots of images that illustrate the techniques you will be learning on the product photography training day:
The group is limited to a maximum of 3 participants to ensure that you get the best quality training experience. There will be opportunities to ask questions, to try out the various setups and to practise editing along with your tutor. The training will be given by experienced photography and Photoshop tutor Joe Lenton. To see more of Joe’s product photography, please visit www.joelenton.com or Joe’s Instagram feed.
Lunch can be purchased from a nearby café, pub or corner shop. Alternatively, please bring your own lunch with you. Drinks will be provided (tea, coffee, cold drink). You will need a camera that allows you to control all aspects of an exposure manually (aperture, shutter, ISO) and a lens that allows you to focus close up. If you are uncertain about the suitability of your equipment, please contact us before booking. To get the most out of the post-production session it is recommended that you bring a laptop with you with Photoshop installed.
