Having confidence with studio lighting skills is important for any product photographer. The Product Lighting Fundamentals course will give students the knowledge and techniques required to photograph a variety of products in the studio using strobe lighting with the appropriate light modifiers. Through the various assignment types, this course will focus on the fine points of lighting a basic variety of consumer goods likely to be encountered by bloggers, entry level in-house photographers and social media shooters. 

The course will consist of discussions and live demonstrations in the studio using studio equipment. Course discussions will focus on current product photographs in order to deconstruct the lighting used and analyze the approach of the photographer and art director to satisfy the client’s requirements. Demonstrations will be given covering a small assortment of product types which will enable students to feel confident in their ability to make excellent photographs of the products they may encounter in real world product photography situations. Students should be prepared to work in teams to solve the in-class assignments with the guidance of the instructor.
