Course Description:

In Product Photography for E-Commerce, designer Dane Howard shows how to take professional-looking photographs that showcase products and build buyers' trust. Using a practical approach, Dane covers objects from collectible coins to real estate, and the lessons can be applied to just about anything that can be sold online. When it comes time to capture images in the studio, Dane discusses how to select a camera and other equipment on any budget. He shares his favorite tips and tricks for getting the most out of camera angles, backgrounds, and scene lighting. He reviews image editing basics, such as cropping and retouching photographs, and explains how to take a presentation beyond a 360-degree view with the integration of rich media. 

Topics Include:
• Understanding the must-have features in a point-and-shoot camera
• Creating a DIY photo studio
• Adding audio to a product presentation
• Shooting small, medium, and large products
• Taking and publishing product photos with an iPhone

A few words about publishing...

<premise> this was a demonstration... to influence, show and demonstrate to... one of the most amazing photographers (Susan Meiselas) the construct of what is going on inside the world of real-time personal publishing... I had a mobile device, I had a recorder (iPhone) and a camera.... and I had about 4.5 minutes...

So began the description of how the 'following' of something (or someone) was going to be the next biggest thing for a creative individual...

Amazing 45 minutes... to spend with someone who has seen (and photographed) much of the world I have never seen, but only captured in 1/30th of a second for over 40 years.

Evolution is a blend of oil and water... and at times it is painful... until it becomes emulsified by something (or someone) that holds the creative molecules together...

if that didn't make any sense what-so-ever... it was a good meeting.

we all want to be a 'part' of something.


What I'm doing all week...

Here's a quick Look behind the scenes at Brand new studio... Working with a talented team on a very tasty title on 'Practical Ecommerce Photography.'
It's a monster, but it should be pretty sweet when it's done.

Extra touches matter.... Redbull pull tab.

I love the extra effort put into an experience... And the branded 'bull' on the pull tab of my red bull had that extra special treat...

 Building arguments for little things to get done set apart great companies from others...

Well done red bull...

Hail, Nespresso!

I love my Nespresso machine!

If you ever have a chance to visit a Nespresso store, do it... Free espresso and a *great* customer experience.
I love mine!
