Documenting Art

Dave Beeman, MFA
1 class meeting / Monday, March 16
6:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Effective and beautiful photographic documentation of artwork is one of the most important skills any artist can have, and can play a significant role in acceptance to schools, residencies, exhibitions, and in the receipt of grants and fellowships. In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll learn about tips and tricks for photographing artwork that will make it look the best it possibly can, from pre-production to shooting to post-production. Topics will include the challenges of different artistic media, cameras & equipment, types of lighting, camera positioning & settings, basic Photoshop tools (including RAW processing) and basic color management.
