An inevitable part of a career as an artist at any scale is professionally documenting your artwork. Professional photographs are important for project and exhibition proposals, grant applications, and marketing. In this workshop, instructor Bill Wise will demonstrate tips and tricks for successful documentation of your artwork using the DAI photography studio located in the Lincoln Park Building. This workshop will cover how to prepare your artwork to be photographed, including best practices with the lighting and backdrops available in the photo studio and positioning the camera using a tripod. Wise will demonstrate with a variety of cameras, including the DAI’s Nikon DSLR, a Canon DSLR, and some cell phones. He’ll discuss the camera settings, taking the photo, some basic photo editing and processing, and more.
The course will take place from 5:30-7:30; however, the Zoom meeting will open 5:00pm in order to provide time for those who have never used Zoom before to become familiar with the platform.
The DAI photography studio is free for use to DAI members. If you are interested in using the photography studio, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is part of the DAI Professional Development series and has been paid for by the Community Foundation Young Leaders Fund
