Approaches to Product Photography

Product photography is one of the most technical and challenging fields

of professional photography, requiring patience, planning, and precision.

This workshop will provide an overview of the purposes, equipment,

skills, and challenges in approaching product imaging. We will work

through several studio applications to create simple stills, focus-stacked

stills, and animations. Finally, we will address how to price product

photography jobs.
