Watch Setup, Shoot, and Photoshop: Creating a Commercial Photography Package

No matter what kind of professional photographer you are (portrait, Wedding, artistic, etc.) chances are at one point or another, a local business owner will approach you for pictures. Instead of turning him/her away or flubbing the job, join Jim DiVitale as he switches back and forth between a location shoot and his desktop to show you how to set up, shoot and process a fairly standard commercial shoot that would make any local business owner incredibly happy. In this class, Jim covers everything you need to know to get some great interior shots for a local business, professional headshots of the staff or owner, and even a couple artistic and special effects shots to wow the client. In the end, your client will have a multitude of shots that can be used in print material, business cards, websites and commercials, and you'll have a new vertical for your business. Includes a bonus class covering outdoor shots.
