Photographing and Documenting your Work with Tim Durham

Saturday 11 March, 10am

Artists can struggle to photograph their own work. If they don’t know how, they may spend scarce resources paying someone else to do it for them but, with some basic guidelines and practice, artists are, for the majority of purposes, well able to photograph their own ceramics, drawings, installations, paintings, sculptures, textiles, etc.

This workshop will assist you in creating a methodical step-by-step process to obtain the best possible results with the equipment you already have, whether this is a digital compact camera or digital SLR. This process will allow you to create high quality ‘accurate’ images for proposals, submissions to galleries, websites, catalogues and press releases.

Perhaps you may still need to employ a professional photographer for producing coffee table books and limited edition prints but, having undertaken this workshop, you will have a better understanding of the process and potential pitfalls, and be better equipped to communicate with a photographer. The course will cover exposure, ISO, white balance, apertures, depth of field, jpg and raw quality, resolution of images, tripod use and much more.
