On Saturday we were fortunate to have the amazing, multi-talented professional photographer Howard Goodman give us a workshop on how to photograph artwork. The six hours just flew by and we learned so much. I think we all feel more empowered now by the knowledge we gained and the practical hands-on experience we had.
It was very much a hands-on class. We learned about PhotoShop Elements 8, including lots of neat tricks (LOVE the new Magic Extractor tool). Howard set up lights, reflectors, a tripod and more so that we could try out our own cameras (both DSLR and a range of point-and-shoot) and he could advise us as to the particular settings our own cameras need to use, where the lights need to be, everything we need to know to get good, clear, correctly-colored shots of our art.
