Join Elena of SimplyNu and the Etsy New York team on Monday, May 19th, 2014 at the Etsy Labs in Dumbo, NY (Brooklyn) for a workshop on taking great photographers of your products using the manual settings of your point and shoot camera.
Attendees will learn how to make the most of your photos to tell your brand's story and explore the following topics:
- How to use your camera manual settings, including: resolution, time exposures, crops, and macros.
- Use of backgrounds and props to enhance your product.
- How to best frame and crop your product to create a memorable image.
Workshop will start with a quick review of a few favorite Etsy shops and an exploration of what makes their photos interesting and unique.
Please bring your camera and 1 or 2 products to photograph, along with an item that you can use as a prop (for example, a piece of cloth or small stand.)
This workshop is free to all EtsyNY teamies. All non-members who are interested in attending can purchase tickets ($5) on Eventbrite. Check in will occur at the door, so please have your tickets and ID available. The door will close at 6:30pm.
Hope to see you there!
