About This Class

Take your design portfolio to the next level by learning the basics of shooting your work like a pro!

Hiring a professional photographer to shoot your work can be expensive. In this class, we'll learn how to create a mini photography studio in the convenience of your own home as well as all the tips and tricks to making your print work look like the best in the industry.

We'll learn everything from how to achieve studio-quality lighting by creating a homemade lightroom, learning to use camera settings, props, and various angles for your portfolio shoot, and also how to finalize the images on Photoshop.

This class is perfect for any designer who wants to create a professional looking portfolio, without hiring a costly photographer or renting equipment. You don't need any photography experience or knowledge, just a willingness to learn and have fun!

This class is a must for anyone interested in taking charge of photographing their own work. Excellent!!!
Good for building your own light box. Not so much for how to actually take photos and work with white balance, aperture, etc.
Good information on building a light box and shooting your photos in the RAW format.
