This special art class has been tailored to assist and train Artists and Craft persons to take better photographic copies of their art creations using a digital camera and then utilizing a computer and Photoshop to adjust and manipulate those images for maximum clarity and resolution for various applications including prints, publications, websites and the Internet.
Students attending will require a suitable digital camera with PC Sync flash terminal output and/or a flash hot shoe (So we can sync with a flash) Also you will require a computer (Laptop) preferred and a copy of Photoshop CS4 or similar. (Can be downloaded from the Internet “Adobe” site FREE*) *Trial for 30 days. It would be an advantage for you to bring along your own tripod. If you are not sure, I can advise on a suitable tripod best suited for art copying.
Also bring along one or two of your paintings, drawings or craft work that you would like to copy during the workshop.
I will have a set of two professional studio flash units to copy art in my demonstration and for use by students. This is hands on and learn as we go by participation. All students will get to use the professional flash units I supply and I will give you explanatory notes for all stages of the process so you can refer to them again in the future.
