The instructor will also share tips and tricks for quick and easy photo editing.

This is a hands-on workshop – participants must bring their own mobile phones or cameras to participate effectively. You are welcome to bring your own products for practice as well.

Each participating registrant* will also be given a 2-hour consultation session with Lance so that he can further assist you with your product photography needs. Consultation sessions will be scheduled directly with Lance.

*Multiple registrants from the same company will be considered for (1) consultation session.
