Do you need product images for Instagram or other websites?  We will examine how to take product photographs without expensive lights and tabletop equipment.  We will cover the basics of product photography, lens focal lengths, depth of field, and manual settings.  How to use light and backgrounds to produce images that are eye catching.  In addition, we will consider post-production editing options to refine what might not have been captured in camera.

This is a hands-on workshop.  To get your creative juices flowing, we will first spend time looking at and dissecting various product photographs.  How light and angle were used plus ways to make the product standout. We will work in teams to collaborate with each other and as human support stands.

  • Digital camera
  • Tripod

  • 2-4 20×24 inch white, black, or other colors of foamboard
