Photographing Your Artwork or Products


Visual artists, ceramicists, artisans, makers… this workshop is for YOU!

Create better photos of your artwork or creative products with the camera you have! Learn the essentials of creating compelling images through composition and storytelling, visual mass and balance, tips and tricks for staging artwork or products, controlling contrast, and getting the best color from your camera or phone camera. Use these photos for your website, online retail and promotion, or for portfolios or submissions.

Registrants should expect to bring your camera(s) and a small-scale artwork or product with them to photograph during this hands-on workshop. Contact us for questions regarding items.
