One 4-hour session
Your glass, jewelry or metal project is finished and now you
want to show it off. What to do? You've tried to take a photo, but the image does not capture the beauty of your work.
In this 4-hour workshop, Jerry Davis will demonstrate how to capture the perfect image of your art with what you have. He will explain lighting, lighting angles, highlights, avoiding flare, creating simple backgrounds, reflection, contrast, color and white balance, tools and equipment, and special effects.
He will share examples of his photos and demo some of his techniques. Specifically, he will teach you how to use your digital camera or smartphone with what you have at home. You will use your camera or smartphone to take photos of your glass or jewelry. Time will be set aside for sharing, comment, and questions.
Bring one or two pieces of glass or jewelry that you want to photograph, your smartphone or camera, and the manual that goes with your camera if available.
This class is good for beginners.
INSTRUCTOR: Jerry Davis has been a photographer for more than 40 years. Part of that time he was a craftsman as well. After photographing his own work, he started shooting pictures for other artists. Much of their work was in glass or silver. Yes, he started with the hard stuff! He often traveled to the artists' locations so they could have full access to their creations. He constructed many small photo studios in the artists' workshops. Jerry works with available light, natural light, continuous lights, and strobes.
