The Complete Guide To Product Photography & Retouching 

When creating the curriculum for this tutorial we broke the content down into 4 sections that best represent the types of product photography across various industries. In the end we built a 20+ hour tutorial around Catalog Photography, Editorial Photography, Small Business (B2B), and Commercial Photography. Throughout 11 photo shoots across all 4 topics we explore the challenges each face and best practices for running your business. We encourage you to explore many of the free sections below to get a feel for the 55 videos included.

 

 

This Product Photography Guide is a comprehensive look at the necessary steps for building a compelling product portfolio, improving composition skills, understanding the complexities of composition, crafting your light to meet your vision, and how to attract new clients and win bigger jobs. We’ve broken down these concepts and catered the sections on gear, lighting, pre-production, and post processing to apply specifically to the product photography market. Upon completion of this course, photographers at any level will gain: a deeper understanding of industry best practices, greater knowledge of equipment spanning all price points, lighting knowledge for any scenario, better approaches to product lighting, and most importantly, image composition. Step-by-step post-production in Capture One 8, Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop have been included with the 11 photo shoots as well. If you’re looking to take the quality of your product photography to another level or perfect photos for your company, this is the perfect product photography tutorial for you.

About the Instructor

Tony Roslund
Product Photography & Retouching

Tony Roslund is a third-generation photographer who grew up in the family's studios and labs of Northern Virginia. Tony started shooting in the days of film and worked as the photographer for his high school yearbook, not only creating all the images, but also processing everything nightly in his fathers lab. His after shool job was also in the studio and lab where he assisted customers, processed film, and printed proofs. A few years after high school, Tony enlisted in the US Navy pursuing a career with the Navy SEALs. Unfortunately he was injured in Hell Week and declined to continue training. Coming full-circle after the military Tony picked up the family craft once again, this time with digital, and started his professional career as a photographer. First with portraits, and eventually moving into commercial product photography.
