Photographing Your Art - The Workshop for Artists
Time & Location
About the Event
The workshop covers choosing the best camera, the most important camera settings, how to light and shoot different types of artwork, how to edit the images on a computer and format them for different uses. We will meet synchronously (at the same), online for one hour each evening. If you miss a meeting, no worries. I will email everyone a link to the recordings.
What You Will Need
1. A computer or smartphone with Internet access and the Zoom app installed. Your email invitation will contain instructions for installing Zoom.
2. A camera. A DSLR is not necessarily required in order to produce high quality photographs but you should use the best camera you own or can borrow. While that smartphone you’ve held onto for a few years might create photos suitable for social media, those images are likely not the quality needed for an online portfolio or for submission to contests and galleries. I suggest a camera that, at a minimum, allows you to change settings for the following:
- white balance
- captured image size and quality
- can be mounted on a tripod
- allows you to turn off any on-camera flash
3. Your camera user's manual. If you do not have one, search the internet to find one. All cameras are different and while I will try to assist, you really should have this reference at your disposal anyway.
4. A tripod capable of securely holding your camera equipment. If you don't already have one, we will discuss tripod selection during the first meeting.
5. A computer with photo editing software installed and operational. I will demonstrate the use of Adobe products, such as Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. You may use any software you like.
