[bc:3988842899001:960:540]

Product photography requires a great deal of work in order to get the shot just right. A product shot is crucial in conveying a product's purpose or message. We're talking about the photos you see at any online retailer, in magazines, or on billboards. Gear varies from product to product, but the fundamentals are almost always the same. Even if you’re not photographing products, the techniques used for product photography are something from which almost everyone can benefit and implement in their own photography.

Join us for a live photo session, which includes product photography, the fundamentals of lighting, color management, and much more! Attendees worked with the instructors to set up backdrop, lighting, cameras, and small- to medium-sized products for a photo shoot. Image capture was performed tethered, and was color-managed from start to finish. Image intake and fundamentals of RAW processing and output are also covered. Color management tools by Datacolor, featuring the new SpyderCHECKR 24 were used during this demonstration.

Very informative – thank you.

After reading your post "How to Shoot Studio and Tabletop Product Photography" I learned quite a few things. 

Actually product photography is very important for any kind of business. An attractive and perfectly shot photo can increase your sales dramatically. I think we should not make any sacrifices when it comes to the quality of our product photography.

Thank you for your nice video. You are right.  Product Photography is an important design element for an e-commerce portal, as sense of sight plays a major role in online shopping. Photos make your product real. Good Job Admin.

"You can sell a dead possum on eBay." Quote of the video! Learned a lot about color correction and setup. "The light meter is your friend." Very informative - looking forward to more of these presentations.
