Photographing 2D/3D Artwork
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Pendleton West Rm 310
Registration opens Monday, April 2 @ 12:00am
This workshop will demonstrate how to shoot and edit digital images of 2-D and 3-D artwork. An essential skill for any studio artist or architect, these images are important for graduate school applications as well as ongoing documentation of one’s work. Participants are invited to bring one sculpture or model for an afternoon of lighting, photographing, and manipulating images in Photoshop to create strong portfolio photography. This will be a hands-on workshop with the goal of each participant coming away with the ability to photograph the rest of their portfolio using Wellesley College Art Department materials, lighting and equipment and their new knowledge and experience.
