The Fine Art of Product Photography

Commercial photographers are busier than ever because they know the business of professional photography. By taking this class, not only will you learn more than "just the basics", but you will learn how to apply those basics to other projects that will put your knowledge above the You-tubers, and other photographers! We will work with basic product photography, then move to chrome and glassware and highly reflective surfaces. We'll work on interiors and exterior buildings and room scenes, and show how moving some furniture can make a room larger or smaller. We will work on food photography, and learn how to shop for products at a grocery store. While not a Photoshop class, understanding and learning the correct way to make your commercial images look more professional will help set you apart from the competition. We will discuss working with clients and art directors and how that changes the complexity of any assignment.
