Learn to really tell the story of your craft visually, and make images that will sing online.
We all judge a pattern and design by the way it's shown. A beautiful photo of handcrafted work on a model is what draws knitters and crocheters to a design. We'll concentrate on how to photograph people- your friends, family, strangers- to model your work, whether it be knit, crocheted, woven or other media. This class will include technical instruction, tips for choosing situations and locations, working with natural light, the psychology of photographing people and how to make them comfortable while getting the kinds of images that show off your finished objects best.
A DSLR isn’t necessary; point & shoot cameras are welcome. Students must know how to access the settings on their cameras.
