Photographing Your Artwork

29 February 2020

Talk and 1-2-1 Tutorials with Olivia Swinscoe NWA

A must-have session for all artists and makers looking to improve their ability to light and photograph their work for print and online use.

A 90-minute informative talk followed by optional 1-2-1 sessions for artists working in any medium.

The talk will provide attendees with helpful tips on lighting, photographing and post-processing images of both 2D and 3D work. The one-to-one sessions will allow participants to put the techniques shared into practice and identify the best lighting setup and camera settings or post-processing techniques for the consistent production of high-quality images of your work.

Suitable for all abilities.

*Olivia will have her own equipment on-hand, but we encourage attendees to bring the kit they have so they can apply the skills learnt back at home.
