We live in an era of online sales. Amazon is king, and every seller on Amazon needs good photos of their products to stand out. It’s no wonder that product shot photography is such a fast-growing field. But just knowing how to take photos of products isn’t enough. You need to know how to make the photos stand out from the hundreds of competing product photos. This course will give you the skills you need to turn those images from OK to WOW! In this course, you will learn how to clean up the classic white background shots, how to best work with lifestyle shots, and how to craft eye-catching hero shots.
Excellent course for the more technical and photographic manipulation aspects regarding the products. Recommended for those who use e-commerce, design packaging and everything related to the world of products. Well work Kirk, I look forward to following your next course.
Overall good course, but too basic things that might be helpful for new users.
There is no such "wow" type things.
awesome course , learned some new tricks
Great content and videos
I was looking for a course which could take my skills of product photography a bit further.
I learnt some new retouching techniques, which helped me with the most wanted white background style photo and lifestyle photography in a studio.
If your skills are beyond basics in photoshop and photography this is a course for you. The info is presented in a clear and concise manner.
Short sections which you can watch over and over again, allow you to practise new techniques on youe own photos.
For some with less experience with photoshop, some videos might drag on a little bit with too much info, but I was excited to see more and more of the content for each chapter. I specifically appreciate the information about copyrights and free stock photos.
I will look forward to another product photography course like this one in a future.
The course was informative and gave me a few new tricks to try when retouching client photos. Kirk is an enjoyable teacher and has a great pace throughout the course.
Interesting and easy to follow
Very inspiring course!
This is my second course from this wonderful guy. You have really impacted a lot on me with this course. Thanks greatly.
Great course super in depth.
Amazing course with no fluff! All of it was great knowledge and to the point. I am looking forward to offering this service on Fiverr.
I love this course, although some portion of it at the mid-course part is meant for the pro, i almost fall asleep, but its all worth it.
The course was great. Ive learnt some new stuff . I wish there were more videos regarding special effects and lifestyle shots because that`s the most tricky part in this craft.
