Photographing Your Artworks for Exhibit Submission and Media
May 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm CDT at TBD $50
This workshop is a MUST for artists of all media. Learn how to get your work submitted and increase the probability of acceptance. This session will show you how to properly light and photograph your own artworks to create high quality images specifically edited for: juried exhibit entry submissions; web posting (included web sites and social media); professional quality print sales; or printed media publications. Each of these objectives have very different requirements, and this workshop will help you learn how to use your own camera (or phone in some cases) to achieve success in sharing or marketing your art. Topics include: accurate lighting; camera set up; managing reflections; color management; file resizing & renaming images; what jurors are looking for; what book/magazine publishers are looking for; and how to optimize imagery for web use. During the workshops participants will learn and practice optimal settings with their own photo devices (cameras or phones) to produce digital images that faithfully represent their original art pieces and comply with submission guidelines for respective uses and media. As a participant you will learn how you can achieve all of this with very inexpensive equipment in your own home or art studio.
