Basic Digital Craft Photography Workshop

Basic Digital Craft Photography Workshop
March 28, 2009
Joy Tanner and John Britt will conduct a one day, hands on class on how to take digital photographs of your three dimensional ceramics/crafts using a simple, low tech approach for the beginner.

Saturday March 28, 2009 - 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

$60.00 (includes digital photographs of 2 – 3 pieces)

The goal is to learn how to construct and set up a simple photographic display and learn the basics of photographing your own work. We will discuss various cameras, digital vs. film, back drops, how to create a handmade light box and adjust for appropriate diffused lighting, basic terminology and everything you need to document acceptable images of your work. With a few simple instructions, you can end your fear of documenting your own work with this easy and inexpensive way of doing it yourself. During this tough economic period, why pay someone $75.00 an hour to photograph your work when digital photography makes it accessible to everyone!

Bring 2 -3 pieces of your 3 dimensional ceramic work, no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” that you would like for us to photograph. (Optional: You can also bring your own camera with your manual if you need help in how to use it for this purpose.) Please call to discuss your choice of objects that you will be bringing. Also, bring a jump drive or a blank CD so you can take your beautiful new images home.

For the cost of photographing three pieces you can learn how to do it yourself!

A lunch, of soup and homemade bread is included.

Class size limited to 8 people.

You guys must must do this photo workshop in the summer. I can beg FeaginDiva if I can sleep on her floor and go to your workshop. I will have to still be handling mugs and packing for Boston when you have that delicious-sounding photo shoot workshop. Darnit.
