Lighting Techniques for Artists – Photo Workshop
This class was set up to help painters and potters, take suitable images of their work. Many artists are just not aware of how to submit a reasonable reproduction of their work to exhibits or gallery shows.
The two main concerns of submitted work are usually the quality of resolution and proper “Colour Balance”. Accurate colour rendering probably being the number one concern when dealing with arts.
The tecniques we discussed in the workshop involved proper alignment and lighting for copying work, and an introduction to using light boxes to take images of three dimensional forms such as ceramics and jewellery. We looked at simple procedures that ensure the correct lighting is used and ways to easily correct lighting mismatches in software post production.
