In this course, we are going to learn how to use our smartphone, and natural lighting, to produce stellar product photos.  We will also talk about the difference between artificial and natural lighting, and how to choose artificial light that LOOKS like natural light.

Topics include:

  • Color temperature, and what it means for photography.
  • Proper use of natural lighting for photography.
  • The difference between different types of bulbs, and how to purchase the right kind for product photography.
  • How to use an all-in-one photography box, if natural lighting is not an option.
  • How to choose backgrounds and props that will work for your products.
  • Tips and tricks for phone photography.
  • How to edit product photos on your phone.
  • How to crop your photos for social media.
  • And more!

~~~

I look forward to having you in my course!  Let's have fun learning the ins-and-outs of great and low-cost product photography. 😃

I thought I knew a lot about photography when I registered for this course, as I had grown up with a darkroom in the home, took photography in school and in the community, have published photographs, have thousands of photos in my i-library, and so forth. This course taught me so much more than I had known about how to set up, take, and evaluate photographs of my own jewelry. Deborah's seasoned eye and her willingness to teach, and then re-teach, guided me through a series of three different photo shoots with critiques. I now feel as though I can photograph future items, as well--and I am even looking forward to it!
