Photography for Craft Artists

Good photography is crucial to sharing your work online, and can help set you apart in the crowded space that is social media. While a professional photographer can provide amazing and consistent results, this may not be in the budget for all of your projects. With some patience and a little bit of knowledge, you can create quality images of your own work. This half day workshop will teach you the basics of photographing your items. Learn camera settings, how to choose the best angles, working with window light as well as inexpensive artificial lighting, and some simple editing techniques.
