Shooting your own product and social media photography

Shooting your own product and social media photography

Photography is such an important part of your brand voice and your professional appearance. Decent photos are necessary for every business and many can’t afford a pro when they start. Learning how to take your own photos is a good idea. Social media and product photography photos are otherwise taken from stock photo libraries, which can be cliched and seen everywhere. Make sure you bring your late model smartphone or your camera, small items you might want to shoot (up to the size of a book or bottle of wine). Jane hopes with some guidance you’ll be taking more interesting photos!

2.5 hour social media/stock and product photography workshop consisting of:

> presentation on photography basics – theme, light, shadows, composition, depth of field, perspective

> next we’ll work in small groups to recreate a few images by using composition, light, shadow, focus etc. This teaches you how to create certain effects and practice your theoretical learnings.

> finally, you’ll be using the equipment provided to shoot your objects using different set-ups including flat lay, softbox tents, coloured background, shooting shiny objects…

Each set-up will have some suggested instructions at it and Jane will float around to help you, and you can inspire each other. You can be as creative as you like.

Hands-on product photography workshop

Bring your modern smartphones or cameras to this session plus some small items and background materials you may want to shoot. Numbers will be of course Covid limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

Jane’s photography experience

Jane has studied photography starting over 20 years ago, including a New York Institute of Photography (NYIP) Diploma, and has been a wedding photographer as a side business previously. Jane has photographed bands and photographed houses for sale and for rent (with a buyer of one saying it was the gallery of photos which sold them on the property).
