Photographing Artwork: The Fundamentals with George Bouret
Saturday – Sunday, August 22 – 23 | 10am – 4pm | $215 tuition + $10 materials Learn to take visually beautiful images that accurately convey your works of art, whether 2D or 3D. Whether for your website, a juried show submission, or other marketing purposes, the importance of taking quality photographs of your artwork cannot be underestimated. This class will teach both 2D and 3D artists how to take visually beautiful images of their pieces that accurately convey the original while avoiding unexpected shadows, off coloring, and poor image quality. Over two days, professional photographer George Bouret will discuss and demonstrate lighting (artificial and natural), proper exposures, color balance, glare, using backgrounds, and much more. He will also be available to discuss, demonstrate and critique artists’ individual photographing challenges. This class is open to all levels. Students should bring a few examples of their work. A camera is optional. This is a Visiting Artist class, therefore cancellations must be made more than 45 days in advance in order to qualify for a refund (less a $25 administrative fee).
