Creating Intriguing Art by Photographing Common Items – ZOOM Workshop

This 3 hour workshop will be conducted over Zoom with live on-screen video and graphics in an interactive webinar format. The instructor will explain and demonstrate advanced techniques for photographing common everyday items in ways that produce intriguing art.  The instructor will teach and demonstrate proper choice of equipment along with management of: lighting; backgrounds; depth-of-field; color; perspective; contrast; and shadows to create art rather than snapshots.  Participants will use their own camera equipment at home in real-time during the Zoom workshop to apply and practice what they are learning by making creative practice photos of 2D and 3D props themselves.  The instructor will introduce and demonstrate inexpensive accessories that he will recommended for ideal backgrounds and lighting sources.  This workshop will be valuable to any still-life photographer.
