I’ve taught this introduction to product photography class quite a few times now. It’s popular, and it’s a perfect place to jump into off-camera flash, and a good primer to have before you dive deeper into studio and flash photography. This class starts off with one flash and builds from there, going into some of the ways of triggering off-camera flashes and presenting some ideas for creating beautiful product photography. We’ll talk about slaves and radio triggers, softboxes, light tents, and all the other things that you need to get your start in product photography.
All you need is your camera with a hot-shoe and manual mode. If you’ve got a strobe or two, or your own way of triggering them, bring them. Also bring anything you want to photograph that fits the category of “product photography.”
We’ll meet at 2pm at the ticket gate of Wakamatsu-Kawada station on the Oedo line. It’s close to the studio, where we’ll work until about 6pm. The fee will be ¥10,000 per student. To register, or ask me a question, email me at tim [at] timdesuyo.com
