Product Photography 101, an Introductory Workshop


Have you ever wanted to learn how to shoot products either on a black or white background, with lighting and strobes? This is a class for beginners. You will learn the basic fundamentals for lighting, shooting, minimizing shadows, getting clean lines, and most of all have fun with other photographers.

Product photography is probably one of the most important aspects of commercial photography. Products can be shot in many ways but if you want to have professional quality results there are some important aspects which must be followed to ensure results suitable for publication in top catalogs, brochures, and similar print media. Also, in the age of the web and on-line sales presenting products in the best possible way can be crucial in making a successful sale.

Attendees will walk away with knowledge on what is needed to set up a product shoot from materials to approximate costs. In addition, each attendee will have time at the end of class to shoot on a few different backdrops and stations. There will be different products at each, and you are encouraged to bring your own as well.

We will have 3 stations, from a basic home setup that you can shoot with your point & shoot, to a setup that could be used on a larger scale for cars and motorcycles.

Supplies Needed:

  • Camera
  • Lens(es)
  • Tripod (Optional)
  • Notepad
  • Pen/Pencil
  • Your own products (Optional)
