Project Description

Class Project

For this class project, you’ll roll up your sleeves and give your product a good cleaning to make it photo worthy.  You’ll then be ready to snap some sexy product photos!

Step 1

Access the cleaning tips and tricks document and links provided in the attached file section. Inspect, clean and take any special notes as discussed in the lesson.

Take a photo of your cleaned item and post it in the project gallery. Let’s see what kind of a transformation you can make with your product!   Here’s how our course example product turned out after cleaning. Not bad eh!

Step 2

Now stage your product and take lots of photos. Post your best one in the project gallery. Notice how much better it is from your very first shot when you just found your product.

Here's a side by side comparison of our course example
