What kind of photography will I learn?
On a white background
What camera do I need for this course?
At the very least you need a smartphone that can take pictures. We recommend using a DSLR camera for your jewellery photography, information on how to choose a camera and affordable options are included in the course. If you don't have a camera yet you can still take the course and use the principles on your phone, then work up to getting a camera when you can.
I am brand new to jewellery photography is this course for me?
Yes, beginners are very welcome on this course. It is a very intense and in-depth course so may be a lot to take in. Take it at your own pace and we are here for support. Remember that practice makes perfect and you can totally do this!
I have done some jewellery photography before is this course for me?
There is so much included that most jewellers will be able to learn something new from this course, even if you take your pictures already. I have been taking photos of jewellery for nearly 10 years and still learnt tons from Karen. If you are unsure take a look at the curriculum outline below. There is always more to learn.
Can I take the course at my own pace?
Absolutely, you will have access to the course for as long as you are a member, or for lifetime if you buy it separately, so either way plenty of time to work through the content.
What other equipment do I need?
Karen will take you through all the options in the course, but as a rough idea, some lights, a light tent a tripod and some props are the main things you need. Most of these can be improvised if money is tight and you can build up your setup over time.
