Make the most of this social media platform by creating attractive photographic content to publicize your brand

A course by Beatriz Tormenta

Meet your teacher Beatriz Tormenta, who tells you about how cameras came into her life and sparked a drastic career change and what the switch from sociologist to photographer was like. She also shows you some of her favorite projects and the Instagram accounts that inspire her work.

To get started, go over some basic marketing concepts. Learn how to define your brand, outline your objectives, and how to strategically use Instagram's tools to advertise your products or services. Beatriz then shows you a set of tricks to promote your project and find potential clients.

Discover the secrets to Beatriz's success by analyzing each step in her creative process, from the first meeting with the client and the brief to developing concepts and presenting an idea using a mood board and a color palette. Then, see how to draw up a budget and choose the right photography gear for your project.

Plan your photoshoot around key variables such as light, composition, color, and format. Once everything is organized, it's time to capture the three photos for your project: a still-life product photo, a product photo with a human element, and an inspirational photo.

Wrap up the course with a thorough demonstration on how to edit your images. Beatriz teaches you how to retouch your photos and easily make tiny adjustments with your cell phone. She also shares some pro tips on how to add these images to your portfolio to attract new clients.

Teacher Plus

Beatriz Tormenta has always been fascinated by the way people are wired, so to better understand them she became a trained sociologist with a focus on social psychology. The first time she held a camera, she discovered that she loved to immortalize everything that her eyes saw with a lens. In 2015, she decided to pursue her passion and is now a product photographer and content creator for Instagram.

Her work involves capturing compelling images for lifestyle, cosmetics, fashion, and food brands such as Bourguignon Floristas, Offset Collage, Hoteles Barceló, and Kaiku. Beatriz specializes in still-life photography featuring products in their everyday context and images with a human element that capture and enhance both the essence of the product and the user's experience.
