Product Photography

Learn to Take Creative Product Photos!

Are you a crafter or small business owner? Are you struggling with taking good photos of your products to share on your website and social accounts?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you! We’ve designed this Product Photography Workshop to teach you how to take amazing shots of your products.

We will cover a variety of topics from the fundamentals of photography, lens choices, to using natural light or artificial lighting (continuous light, non-strobe lighting) for your product photos.

Bring in a sample of your product, the camera you’re most comfortable using (a phone camera, mirrorless or DSLR) so you can practice taking your own photos after your instructor has completed the lesson plan and demo.
