It is strange how things happen sometimes, it seems that I had no sooner done the product photography training workshop for Paul Beighton Auctioneers than I was approached by a small company that sells lanyards and scarves.
As the items to be photographed were small I suggested that they come to my studio so I could review what they were currently doing and to offer advice on how to make things better
The workshop was to be a mixture of how to photograph the items and then how to process them in Lightroom and Photoshop
The morning started with Corrine setting up her equipment and showing me some results. It would have been easy to use professional lights but she didn’t have any and really didn’t need them either. All that was needed was a large sheet of white paper to create an infinity curve, some black velvet, a tripod and natural light.
We didn’t even need to go into the studio, we shot everything on my kitchen table. Corrine was delighted with the results and amazed how simple the setup was to get stunningly good images with no fuss and little capital outlay
After each series of photos we would import them into Lightroom and Photoshop so that Corrine could see the easy processes needed to crop, white balance and save her images
Not everything in photography needs thousands of pounds worth of equipment and studio lighting and this was proved for this product photography training workshop
