Artforce NL x EE Workshop: Photographing Your Art with Matthew Hollett
High-quality images of your artwork make a huge difference when applying for exhibitions and grants! This is a workshop on documenting artwork through photography. We’ll compare different ways of digitizing your work, including professional cameras, phone cameras, and scanners. We’ll talk about the importance of good lighting, and using a tripod. We will also go over post-processing images in Photoshop: cropping and perspective correction, brightness, saturation and colour balance, and so on. Finally, we’ll look at different image formats and how to resize and format your files for different purposes.
This workshop is free to attend, and all are welcome! This program is funded by an organization that serves folks aged 15-30, so we strongly encourage youth to attend.
