What you'll learn in this photography class:

ATTENTION:  This class will be offered as scheduled, but we will start the class using an online, live-streaming platform.  This will allow us to do full LIVE teaching, with realtime interaction and a thru-the-lens camera view for demonstrations. We are excited to offer this class at a discount in response to challenges faced by the health emergency.


In this workshop, we'll show you some important techniques for shooting smaller objects without dropping thousands of dollars on high-end lighting gear.  We’ll show you how to maximize just about any camera to capture clean, well-lit photographs of clothes, shoes, accessories, as well as collectible items or even electronics.  Using smart lighting techniques, controlled backgrounds and a little technical wizardry, we can help you create luminous and attractive images of all the weird and wonderful stuff you want to sell online.

COVID-19 UPDATE:  Using live video demonstrations, guided feedback to exercises, screen-sharing for slides and illustrations, and submitted assignments, we’ll be able to translate the great majority of the content from this class to the online format, and develop exciting new content for the medium as well.  We look forward to the challenge, and we hope you do too!

Who should take this class?

This class is perfect for anyone wanting professional-looking product shots and tabletop stills for selling online.  It’s been well documented that high-quality, attractive photography can dramatically improve demand and sales on shopping sites like Etsy or eBay.  

This workshop is also great for designers, craft artists, still life afficionados or anyone looking to upgrade your promotional materials, press kits and portfolio websites. No previous experience is necessary!

What to prepare?

Your camera.  DSLRs are great, but even a iPhone or Android smartphone can be used in this class.  Some simpler point-and-shoot cameras will not have all the options available for lighting control

Make sure to have a working laptop or desktop with a webcamera, or an tablet/smartphone, and a good internet connection.  We will send you an invite to join the class, along with instructions and a number you can call if you have technical issues.  You might want headphones.  Charge camera batteries and make space on your camera's memory card. 

Prerequisites

None!  All are welcome.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Crash Course: Easy Stills and Tabletops
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/6/2016
Course content was good but wish the hands on, studio shooting component was longer. Also, the instructor was not as prepared as I would have liked and there were too many instances where she was looking for items for demoing purposes.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 1/13/2015
Great class. Very informative for the total beginner. However the description and follow up email said we should bring cameras so we could practice. I lugged my camera to class and we ended up not using them! :(
