This course is "hands on". When to use directional (front, side, top, or bottom) lighting, or a combination of these, depends on the subject. Hard or soft lighting. Using a light tent. Backgrounds and accessories.
On-line sales, insurance records, or products for catalogues, all require clean sharp images. And 'Still Life' images are always appreciated for their artistic qualities. Lighting a product or subject should evoke emotions to allow the viewer to remember past experiences or imagine future desires, associated with the subject.
Also an introduction to the following:-
• Light sources - natural or artificial
• Light placement
• Reflections - where, why and how
• Perspective and subject distortion
• Exposure for the subject and the background
