This course is the continuity of Product Photography I. And we couldn't be happier to see you back for more. Here, you'll build on the knowledge and skills you acquired to focus on techniques used for products with highly reflective surfaces. You'll learn about the laws of reflection, multi-source lighting, shooting dark objects on dark backgrounds and scene setups. You'll also hone your skills by learning how to take sharp images of a variety of products and how to control shadows and reflections to achieve the desired product shaping. With those skills under your belt, you'll be ready to take a shot at a new career.
