What does the day involve?
This one-day workshop is a hands-on introduction to photographing jewellery, aimed at jewellers who are considering or just beginning to sell their work.
We’ll look at the why and the how of creating a consistent and considered style for presenting your work either online or for marketing materials. We’ll cover the basic kit you’ll need; the best camera settings to use; different lighting styles and how to achieve them; and composition and styling using a range of backgrounds and props to bring your images to life. No previous photography experience is needed. You’re welcome to use a phone camera or SLR/mirrorless camera, as you prefer, and to bring with you any other photography kit or props you may have, although this is not necessary.
Cathy Pyle is an experienced professional photographer and teacher of adults, who works with creatives, small businesses and magazines across the UK.
No experience is required to attend this course.
What is included? What to bring:
Bring along your smart phone and any props of camera equipment you would like to use or need some advice using. We will have backgrounds and some props you are welcome to use. You will be moving around the workshop, within the corridor area and outside to explore different environments to photograph your work.
