New On site training courses
I have recently done on-site courses at the following range of companies:-
Toys: A large toy importer who needed help photographing toys for website use. This involved complex photographic problems. As the toys were usually packed in shiny plastic they were very light reflective.
Furniture: Setting up a studio for a furniture manufacturer who needed large pieces of upholstered furniture displayed on white pure backgrounds with naturalistic shadows under them.
Cake decorations: A cake decoration manufacturer having colour balance problems that detracted from his products. Poor colour rendition in website pictures
Portraits: A portrait photographer who wanted to have a practise day using a large strip soft box.
Phones: A phone case retailer who needed website pictures of his products that changed very frequently.
Mrs X was given an expensive camera as a present. Although she had a good knowledge of wet photography she had yet to make the change to digital. The camera handbook was largely unreadable jargon. I spent a day working with her in order to make the camera comprehensible. Without the course she would have just switched to programme and used the camera like a £80 point and shoot model.Click this link to find out more....
I get lots of work from people who run small commercial websites and believe just buying equipment will solve their problems.
A toy importer needed web and catalogue pictures of imported toys that are shrink wrapped in cellophane. A combination of solid and transparent in the same object. Just about as difficult subject matter as you could find. This is a demanding subject even for a seasoned professional. In this case I visited the warehouse and advised on suitable equipment and techniques to use.Click for infomation on the right course.
Studio Portrait lighting
Mr Y was a good outdoor photographer and member of a local photographic club. He was well informed about image processing but had never had the opportunity to work with studio lighting. The moening was spent talking about basic lighting techniques. In the afternoon his grand daughters arrived and he spent the afternoon using them as models. Click here for the best course
