Getting Familiar with the Camera
Understanding how your camera works doesn’t have to be a painful undertaking. In this chapter, terms like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO will be explained in an easy-to-understand way. We’ll also look at getting great shots with a point-and-shoot camera and talk about depth of field, which is an important concept for product photography.
Basic Composition and Staging Tips
In this chapter you’ll learn to compose your images in a way that highlights your crafts’ best attributes by using framing, negative space, lines, and the rule of thirds. Your images will be well-balanced, compelling, and downright gorgeous.
Equipment List: Making and Buying Helpful Tools
While the best camera you can get is usually the one you’ve already got, there are a few accessories that will make shooting high-quality photos easier and more streamlined. In this chapter you’ll learn how to buy – or better yet, make – some tools to help improve your shots.
Image Editing with Photoshop Elements
Even the best photographer doesn’t shoot a perfect image every time. In this chapter, we’ll look at ways to touch up your craft photos in Photoshop Elements to get the best possible results.
Compressing and Uploading
When sharing your photos you’ll often need to compress them, whether to fit in an email or to comply with a publication’s size requirements. In this chapter you’ll learn how to compress and upload your craft photos to ensure you get the best results.
Uploading Images for Blogging, Selling, and Printing
There are different strategies for uploading your images depending on whether you want to share them, sell them, or blog about them. This chapter will cover best practices for uploading images for the most common craft scenarios.
The lessons are wrapped in a feature-rich interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside your application. Also included are exercise files that give you an easy way to try out the techniques you learn.
