We often struggle in producing satisfactory images for use in social media. As so many of us are now selling online, good product photography is essential. Join Austin to discover how to show off your woolly wonders, or any other art or craft product, in the best light. With colour and texture notoriously difficult to capture, we will learn simple and effective ways to improve the accuracy and interest in our images. Bring camera – phone, compact or DLSR; tripods welcome.
