WHAT TO EXPECT
Tabletop Photography is ideal for anyone shooting products or food — whether it’s for your blog or for your business.
In class, you will learn tips and tricks with equipment, camera angles, styling, lighting positions and more. Homework assignments will push you to create top-notch magazine and ad ready shots. Shooting with natural light or artificial continuous light will be encouraged and instructed.
HOW IT WORKS
The Nicole’s Classes application is a downloadable program you install on your computer. (The link to download will be provided the day the class starts.) Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible and fit into most any schedule and we happily welcome international students!
Please note that for some portions of this class (email inquiries and critiques), the instructor may be assisted by an approved professional photography T.A.
Tabletop Photography has our Photo 101 course or equivalent experience as a prerequisite course. Students must have a good grasp of setting manual exposures as this will not be covered in class but is required to get the most out of the class material.
