Shoot It!

A Product Photography Primer

with Caro Sheridan
Need help selling your sweater pattern or any other handmade good online? Caro Sheridan will show you how to compose on-figure fashion photos and capture beautiful product shots.

If you've ever noticed the beautiful product photography on someone's knitting blog, book, or Etsy page, and wondered, "How do they DO that?" this is the class for you. Quality photos make the difference between marketing that sings and stuff that makes you look like a total amateur. Knitter and photographer Caro Sheridan explains it all - from planning before the shoot to editing afterwards, and all the details in between. You don't need expensive software or a super-fancy camera to take great photos -- just the knowledge you'll get in this essential class. Whether you're looking to shoot product pics, or just want to learn more about photography, you will benefit from Caro's upbeat, irreverent and detailed instruction.

"This class was just what I needed right now and totally what I expected. A primer is basically an introduction and that is exactly what this class was. I just purchased a brand new camera to take better photos of my Etsy items. This class gave me a lot of information that I did not know as a novice photographer. It also made me more comfortable with using my photo editing software. Caro is a pleasant speaker and I enjoyed learning from her."
