About these classesPhotographing sporting equipment may seem like a niche area of product photography, but there are many valuable photography skills you can learn by shooting these items.
This series of classes will teach you techniques that you can apply time and time again to many different products, including how to light multiple surface textures, choose the best shooting angle, and even combine studio flash and continuous light, as Karl shares many of the skills, tricks and tips that have taken him over 20 years to master.
Each of these classes cover the lighting and styling through multiple demonstrations, so you’ll learn how to plan your images and visualise the desired end result, understand what angles to shoot certain products from, how to achieve gradient lighting, and what lenses and equipment to use to get the best results.
Karl also shows you how to overcome the challenges he faced during these shoots, such as how to reduce flare, control light bounce in a studio, capture precise movement using a motion sensor and achieve greater depth of field through focus stacking.
With detailed guidance and knowledgeable instruction, you’ll learn how to tackle any shoot with confidence and apply these skills to create results your clients will love.
