Product photography ‘From The Ground-Up’ is a workshop packed with things you simply can not pick up easily if at all, except through a practical workshop or shooting experience.
Step – by – step, it is a fascinating day, opening up product shooting skills from here on in, taking lots off of the learning curve and making the process logical but fun.
It is also useful for those interested in shooting ‘Still-Life’ subject matter, or simply with a desire to understand further what controllable lighting can do for your photography.
Please bring your camera and lens, a ‘macro’ or other quality close shooting lens, as this day is based around practical shooting components.
Lighting and some optics will also be supplied for use on the day.
