what will happen

At this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening based at the Holiday Inn – Ellesmere Port you will be learning how to photograph products for a commercial use.  This genre of photography is satisfying in many ways – you will not only be creating and making images that are valuable commercially (think Stock Imagery) but you will learn invaluable, transferable skills and techniques that will be useful in your photographic journey – such as styling, lighting, composition and camera skills.  You will be shown how to style and compose your images – why certain products suit different styling, when to use a “Flat-Lay” look (popular with bloggers) and what backgrounds work best – you will also learn how bokeh (blurring of the background) can enhance your images as well. 

Please bring your laptop if you would like to take advantage of some One to One post processing tuition giving you hints and tips on how you could process your images.

As with all things Welshot, there will be One to One as well as group tuition and there will always be support, guidance, help and support to make sure you get the images you desire.
