Learn How to Light, Shoot, and Edit This Eye-Catching Cosmetic Product Photo

There is a lot more room to be creative in product photography than you might initially think, and part of creating compelling imagery is knowing how to add your own stylistic touches in a way that complements the product's purpose. This excellent video tutorial will show you one such example of that by guiding through lighting, shooting, and editing a bold cosmetics product image. 

Coming to you from Dustin Dolby of workphlo, this awesome video tutorial will show how to light, shoot, and edit a bold, contrasty, and eye-catching cosmetics product photo. Even if you do not shoot products professionally, it is a really great genre to practice, as it will challenge your lighting, problem-solving, and editing skills, and the techniques you learn will easily translate to a wide range of other applications. As you will see, you can create this shot with just speedlights, so take a few hours this week and try it out. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Dolby.
