  • Starting In Studio Photography: Part 1, Understanding studio lighting


    Starting-In-Studio Photography-Part-1-Understanding-studio-lightingStarting in Studio Photography is the first in a three part series of workshops that will provide the basics of studio photography.

    This course breaks down all of the fundamentals of studio photography so that you have a firm foundation from which to build upon. You will start off by looking at the basic gear that you need to begin this course.

    Keep in mind, it is not about the brand names of your gear that counts, but rather it is about having equipment that is good enough to get a quality job done.

    Product and studio photography has more to do with the directing light than it does with fancy features of cameras or lenses. Here light and the ability to control the light is what will make the difference in your images.

    Once you understand the gear that is needed, you will start off learning how to create backgrounds for your shot. This is the first step in creating the scene in which your product will be showcased. Next you will learn about gradients. Gradients provide depth in your image to make your product stand out from the background.

    Depending on the product, the ability to add or bring out textures around or in your subjects will also provide additional depth to the image you are trying to create. Finally you will look at refractions. These are especially important when you are trying to work with liquids and transparent objects such as bottles and glasses.

  • Starting In Studio Photography: Part 2, Practical Examples


    Starting In Studio Photography: Part 2, Practical ExamplesStarting in Studio Photography – Practical Examples is the second in a three part series of online workshops that covers a theory of studio lighting.

    While this is primarily geared toward the beginner student, there are a lot of fundamental techniques that will also benefit those who are already working to create product photography images that may not have acquired all of the subtle skills that can take them to the next level.

    In this course you will build on the information that you acquired from the first part of this series – Starting in Studio Photography: Understanding Studio Lighting.

    This course will take assume that you understand those techniques and will continue to build on them. Also, most of this course is very free-form. This means that viewing it will resemble a live on-line workshop. The benefit here is that not only will you get to see what works, but also the problems that occur and how to troubleshoot them on the fly.

    After a brief introduction and a look at the equipment that will be used for this course, you will explore, in real-time mode, the setup and shooting of a number of different products. The first will be a cosmetics product shot which will look to photograph a cylindrical product. From there you will move on to a bottle of Bailey’s Irish Crème as well as a bottle of Vodka. Both of these provide additional challenges based on container size and shape.

  • Starting In Studio Photography: Part 3, Post-Production


    Starting In Studio Photography: Part 3, Post-Production

    Now that you have taken the shots and completed the photographic work all that is left to do is the post-production. You might think that if you get it right in the camera, there should not be much to do in post-production. For many other photographic disciplines, this may be the case, but not for professional product photography.

    By its very nature, product photography is created to sell products. This means that the output must be exactly as the client envisions it. This could lead to extensive work in post-production.

    In many real-world situations, this would call for the outside help of professional retoucher to complete the task. You, as a professional, should have some fundamental skills for working in post-production. The goal here is to have the ability to prepare a quality image for the client to review in as quickly as possible.

    In this course, Genia Larionva works with Alex to provide you with these essential skills as you complete the shots that you created in “Starting in Studio Photography Part 2, Practical Examples”. These include the cosmetic, the vodka bottle, the electronic device, the flower, the glass and metal setup, and the liquor bottle.
