About these classesWhether you want to shoot high-end creative advertising campaigns for major brands, photograph cosmetics for small business websites, or simply add some creative examples to your portfolio to impress clients, we have the class for you.
These tiny products can be challenging subjects to photograph though, as they often feature mixed textures and small details, so it’s important to understand the key principles of product photography and, most importantly, light if you want to get the best results.
Throughout these classes, Karl explains the common challenges that arise in cosmetics photography and demonstrates how they can be easily overcome with simple problem-solving and knowledge of light.
He also shares some of the professional cosmetics photography tips and tricks that have taken him years to master and teaches specialist techniques such as how to suspend products for creative shoots, photograph flat-lay cosmetics, use focus stacking to overcome depth of field issues that arise when photographing small objects, and even how to photograph cosmetics in liquid.
Whether you have one light or five, work in a large studio or converted dining room, there's a class for everyone. You’ll also see just how easy it is to capture unique images of the same product as Karl demonstrates the styling, lighting, and retouching for creating two different shots of the same product.
