CLOSED: Intro to product photography

Last month I opened my Japanorama studio classes with a basic product photography course, and it seems to have gone off swimmingly. Thanks to everyone who came out and shot! I know some of the photos have made it up onto Flickr, but I haven’t seen everyone’s shots yet. I’m going to offer this course again On Saturday, April 28th, from 2-6pm. I intend to do a lot more teaching through Japanorama, and if you don’t have any experience with strobes, or off-camera triggering techniques, then you should definitely get in on this. In addition to being a useful skillset to have, product photography is a gateway drug to lighting people, and other large objects… not that any of the models I’ve worked with are large… uh… no. I didn’t say that.

We’ll start with one strobe, and a box, and work up from there, building on that with different triggering methods and light modifiers. I’ve got a box of toys to shoot, but please, bring whatever you’d like to shoot! Bring any strobes you’ve got, and any macro lenses or gear you might have. If you don’t have any strobe gear, but you’ve got a hot-shoe and a full-manual mode, you’ll be all good.

We’ll meet at 2pm at the Wakamatsu-Kawada station ticket gate on the Oedo line, and the fee will be 10,000 yen per person. Space is limited, so send me an email at t.buerger [at] to register!

NOTE: I just edited the contact address because will be going down today (April 19) for a rebuild. Sorry for the inconvenience.

EDIT: Thanks everyone! This class is full up! If you are still interested in taking it, send me an email anyway, and I will see when I can run this class again.
