1st Day: Digital Photography Techniques for the Artist.
Photography has always had a huge effect on the traditional artist. Many artists use the photographs they take as an inspiration for their artwork. The key to all art forms is predictable control of the medium used. Attendees will learn the basics of photographic composition and how to use the controls on their camera to get the visual effects they want. They will also learn basic photographic lighting techniques for photographing artwork for exhibition submissions, for use on web sites, and for printed literature. Attendees should bring their camera (with instruction book if possible) and a piece of flat unframed artwork to photograph.
2nd Day: Post production Photoshop Techniques
The digital image file is just the starting point for digital photography. Software programs like Photoshop allow the artist to further improve images and alter them anyway they can imagine. The use of Photoshop and a few other programs (one is free) will be explained and attendees will learn how to utilize the tools in these programs to get the visual effects they want in their images. A final print is not the only way to use and present the images. Attendees will also learn how artists use image transfers in their artwork. Attendees should bring a CD with a few images or the camera’s memory card with images on it. Also bring a few small opaque and translucent items (coins, keys, lace, feathers, flowers, whatever), to fit on a 5”x7” piece of cyanotype paper for making a photogram.
