Commercial Photography with Joe Glyda
In today’s photography world, YouTube has taken center stage by promoting the average person to claim that they are a professional photographer because they watched a few videos, have a website and boast their expertise on how to photograph something other than people. The more this is happening, the more photographers are getting discouraged. On the contrary, good commercial photographers are busier than ever because they know the business of good photography. By attending this class, not only will you learn more than “just the basics”, but you will learn how to apply those basics to other projects that will put your knowledge above the YouTubers and other photographers as well.
I will discuss the difference between Portrait/Wedding photography and Commercial photography.
We will work with basic products, then move to more difficult products like glassware and chrome which are highly reflective surfaces. Then we will talk about food photography, and I will show you the secrets of food photography positioning and lighting. I will talk about design, composition and working with layouts and Art Directors.
This will not a photoshop class, however, understanding and learning some of the ways to make your commercial images look more professional will help set yourself apart from the competition. I look forward to seeing you all in August 2022 for this event.
