Image is everything when it comes to online sales. Your product shots tell the story of your shop and are the first impression your business makes on customers. Great photos are the beginning of getting your products pinned, featured in magazines, on influential blogs and on the coveted front page of online sales platforms like Etsy, Ravelry, Not on the High Street and Folksy. Whether you sell your own handmade wares on sites or run an online boutique, making the most of those first impressions is crucial.
Product photography can feel overwhelming. We want to help you use your camera to capture the kinds of images you want to use to sell your work. We will show you how to create images that are compatible with your brand, help you easily create white cutouts and go through the basics of working with models.
We will teach you the basics of:
- Creating a consistent style and flow in your shop front
- Setting up a home studio
- Working with models
- Get the shots you need to sell
- Editing for impact
- Photo management for online platforms
Chocked full of advice, tips and case studies, this workshop will get you thinking about how to create images with impact to maximize sales and exposure.
