One of the trickiest things to capture in product photography is that crisp, white background. You setup your shot, it seems like everything looks great but then – what the heck?
Why is this white background coming out GREY?!
As a professional product photographer, I can tell ya – it isn’t easy. BUT, I’ve got you covered.
I’ve broken down the process into simple, easy steps to achieve that crisp, white background – without the headache.
Professional-looking photos are key to the success of your online business.

Hey, I’m Amy
I’m a professional product photographer who knows her stuff – but what’s even more important is that I know how to teach efficient, effective photography practices in the most simplified, step-by-step way. No muss, no fuss, and no over-your-head technical jargon. Just straight-forward information that you need to know.
All of my courses and tools are developed with non-photographers in mind, so they’re simple and to the point. I don’t need to show off how much I know with big words or fancy setups – my goal is to have my students taking gorgeous photos for their businesses as quickly and easily as possible.
Do I need a DSLR camera for this course?
Nope! You sure don’t. DSLRs are great, and they tend to make taking an awesome photos easier, but you absolutely can use your smartphone for this course as well. All of the material will still apply and you’ll even get some smartphone photography tips along the way.
How is this course delivered?
The lectures are delivered via video, both with slides and active demonstrations on how to actually do the strategies and techniques.
Do I need a lot of extra equipment for this?
Not usually! I always encourage my students to use the least expensive/complicated tools, as long as they are effective. Depending on the situation (how much available natural light you have, whether or not your products are reflective, the size of your products, etc), artificial light may be required.
Do I need a fancy editing program?
I do recommend Photoshop for this course, or a close equivalent like Affinity Photo. It is possible to use other programs like Photoshop Elements as well, although they are limited and may not be able to perform some of the tasks as well. The bonus set of Photoshop actions can only be used with Photoshop CC.
What if my products are white? Or silver? That's tough to capture.
It sure is! BUT, there are tricks that’ll help and I have them for you. If you have any of these difficult-to-photograph items, you especially need this course.
How long do I have access to the course? Do I have to complete it within a certain time frame?
This course is totally self-paced and once you enroll, you have lifetime access to the course videos.
