Photigy Online Workshop: Starting In Studio Photography: Part 1, Understanding Lighting
Instructor: Alex Koloskov
Starting in Studio Photography is the first in a three part series of workshops that will provide the basics of studio photography. 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 techniques that can take them to the next level.
Instructor: Alex Koloskov
This course breaks down the fundamentals of studio photography and helps to build a strong foundation of basic photography skills. You will start by looking at the essential gear that you need to begin your professional career in photography.
Keep in mind that it’s not about the brand of the gear, but rather about having equipment that is good enough to get the job done.
Product and studio photography have more to do with the directing light than with fancy features of the camera or lenses. Light and the ability to control it is what will make the difference in your images.
Once you get to know your gear, you will start learning how to create backgrounds for the shoot. This is the first step in creating a scene where you’ll showcase your product. Next, you will learn about gradients and how they add depth to your image, and make your product stand out from the background.
Depending on the product, the ability to add/enhance its texture will also provide additional depth to the image. Finally, we’ll talk about reflection refraction; this is particularly important when you are trying to work with liquids and transparent objects such as bottles and glasses.
After successfully finishing this course you will be issued with a professional certificate from Photigy Photography School.
Professional certification shows potential clients that you are committed to your profession and are well-trained.It gives them confidence in your abilities because it proves that your skills have been evaluated and approved by a well-regarded professional organization.
