Take this course if you have a desire to learn how to create spectacular small product images by being able to follow the instructions included in this course. If you would like to learn how you can take photos of the small products or jewelry you are selling, consider attending my private workshop. Instead of photographing your items on a carpet or bed spread with bad lighting. Say NO to bad photography and start making more money with quality photos. Whether you are selling your own products on your own website or small products on eBay, I truly believe this course can help you.
Note: This class is for owners of a DSLR’s only and for those who have at least a basic understanding of their camera.
Topics covered in the product workshop are:
Vocabulary, or terms used in the studio (feather, key light, fill light)
Gear to start your own studio
Quality of light

This is the equipment I used in the photoshoot.
I ordered 2 PBL 10 foot Light Stands Heavy Duty All Metal ( not plastic ).Bought a light shooting table with white curved plexiglass. You can easily replaced the plexiglass with other background materials. I also bought a large softbox and a long narrow softbox which is great for creating tall highlights.
