This session will cover product photography for makers using examples of different product types and materials. 


Yeshen will give you a introductory talk covering case studies with lots of images followed by a live demonstration.

During the live demonstration Yeshen will shoot connected to a computer so you'll see the results live. The demo will be cover:

  • Essential equipment
  • Understanding your camera's Manual mode
  • How to find your light
  • Selecting backgrounds and surfaces
  • Specific tips for different products (tailored to the group on the day)
  • How to shoot for different uses (product listings, web banner, brochures, social media)
  • How to get it right 'in camera'
  • Use of props to tell a story
  • Tips for using your phone for social media photos, particularly Instagram.
