Introduction to Product Photography
During this one day course we will look at the principles of Product, Jewellery and Still Life Photography. It is a great opportunity to enhance your photography and lighting skills, under the guidance of our experienced tutors.
In this fun, engaging and informative workshop we will also be sharing many tips and tricks of the trade. The lighting techniques you will learn will enable you to capture high quality product images for commercial and editorial use.
At the end of the day not only you will gain confidence for shooting at home or a studio environment, but you will also walk away with some great images for your portfolio or website.
It was very friendly and fantastic experience. We learnt the basics of photography, the importance of lighting, and improved skills on how to enhance different types of gem set rings when photographed. Katerina is extremely experienced and knowledgeable about our field of jewellery. The course exceeded my expectations.
Louis Kutock, Gems of London
I own a wedding stationary company and wanted to take better pictures of my products for the online shop. The class has been amazing. Such an eye-opener to using lights and exposure. The hands on working environment is great as you can see how it all works & get involved. It has been a great course. Thank you!
Lynsey Jackson, The Little Touches
I’m walking away feeling I now have the knowledge and confidence to set up and use all the necessary equipment for high quality and professional product shots, which is exactly what we need!
Alanna Roy-Bentley, Frescobol Carioca
I came to the course with very little understanding of cameras and lighting, but with the need to improve the product photography for my fine vintage jewellery website. Katerina was very patient and explained every aspect of the camera in detail. The technical exercises really helped to familiarise myself with the theoretical concepts, and I am staggered at the difference it has made in both, image quality and my confidence in handling a camera. Thanks! XX
Rona Bierrum, Shiny Pretty Things
Excellent, interesting and helpful. A very good introduction to the overall use of a digital camera and very helpful with practising product photography. Insightful about lighting with plenty of great tips. Would definitely recommend to friends. Really transferable information.
