About this learning program for product photographers

In this learning program for product photographer you will learn the basics of still life photography. These are techniques that will open doors to you for a successful career as a commercial product photographer.

The program consists of six modules covering the entire process of a photography shoot: prepping the shoot, the gear and theory behind studio lighting, the specifics of working with various types of products, and the complete post-production in Adobe Photoshop of the images presented in the course.

Each module gradually increases the complexity of the techniques provided, ensuring students acquire skills step-by-step and allowing them practical application of the concepts through the completion of assignments after each module.
