Photography Workshop for Fashion Retail Outlet

Great workshop with Jiliana, Lorraine and Ciara from Place Gorey. In this session we worked on basic camera settings and played with several different “Three Light Setups” so that Juliana and the team at Place can take consistent, high quality images for use on their Web Site and Social Media.

Next session will concentrate on lighting for product images, jewellery/accessories and some post processing using Adobe Lightroom.

We will also be checking homework! Start taking lots of images for next week.

P.S. Sorry Lorraine, the only shot I had of the behind the scenes setup was one with your eyes closed. I promise I’ll make up for it next week.

When it comes to product photography, it’s all about mood, telling the story and getting people to visualise themselves as part of the scene.

The mood is primarily created by the lighting and the colour pallet. The story is told using the props, the wine, Christmas decoration and the good table cloth that is only produced at Christmas.

Hopefully the flames on the pudding trigger a memory of all the times Dad turned the pudding into the Towering Inferno after his second bottle of wine.

I have to say the Lighter Fluid gives the pudding a very distinctive flavour.
