pictures for artwork
Still life, landscapes,
portraits or whatever your subject, good reference photographs are
important. In this presentation, we will deal with the most common
problems and even the tougher challenges. The emphasis is on the
basic understanding of capturing the subject and solving our issues
before they become problems.
Asking yourself about the composition and other considerations of
setting up the scene: where is the horizon? Vanishing point? Is
there a foreground, middle ground and background? The values, elements
of design, what is the orientation of the viewer?
Most cameras today do a great job of making nice pictures of many
situations. Many great art projects require going beyond the normal,
where a little more knowledge
is needed. I can help alleviate those frustrations in my presentation
without too much technical time. Discussion of lens choice and effect
on perspective, limitations and capabilities of the camera.
This is a "hands on" approach. Bring your camera, manual
and prepare for a good time. I will have a computer to demonstrate
the whole process.
