Event description

Description

The key to selling products online is great photography. When a customer doesn't have the benefit of picking your product up in their hands to get an up-close look at an item, the photographs need to be able to answer all their questions faithfully and acurrately.

Led by photographer and local Etsy seller Jillian Logee and sponsored by The Camera Store, this two-hour course will go over guidelines for Etsy shop photographs and how to make the most of those 5 photo slots per listing. We'll cover styling your product photos, using various forms of lighting, and tips for making sure your photos are as accurate as possible.

To get the most out of the workshop, we recommend bringing the following:

  • 3 to 5 of your own products or stand-in props
  • a digital camera (a smartphone, point-and-shoot, or DSLR camera)
  • a notebook

Please note: access to the studio space is up one flight of stairs. Unfortunately, there is no elevator access.

To get the most of this presentation, start your shop prior to the workshop! Visit https://www.etsy.com/promotions?promotion_code=MakerCities and enter the code MakerCities and you will receive 20 free listings when your Etsy shop is opened. Your shop must be new to redeem this code. Don’t worry about making your shop perfect - you can keep your store in “Draft” mode until the workshop. All you need is your shop name picked out to redeem the promo code!
