10 Tips & Tricks for Photographing Your Knits

10am-12:30pm: GALE ZUCKER$75

Learn to make your fiber photos fabulous! Gain an understanding of better ways to use light, bring out texture and color, choose backgrounds, and composition. Great for beginners or more advanced photographers.

There is something for everyone in this class; part illustrated slide talk, part hands-on photo making, as students discover ways to bring out the best in their handknits/handcrafted items. As time permits we will discuss photo editing and/or review the pictures we shot together.

This class is for all levels, any kind of digital camera: DSLR, Point & Shoot or iPhone/Smartphone are all welcome.
Students should bring their camera, fully charged, a media card for recording the images, a power cord, and a project to experiment with shooting.
