Stitch & Click: Photographing Fiber Arts with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
Nothing is more disappointing than finishing a FAB fiber project and not being able to take an equally FAB photo of it. In Stitch & Click we will show you how to take great photos that show off your stitch and fiber work.
Don't have an expensive camera or fancy photography studio equipment? No worries! We will show you simple tips and tricks to use what you have around the house to create photos that will really show off all that hard work you put into your handmade projects.
In this class we'll teach you the basics of how all cameras work whether you have a DSLR, or a mobile device. We'll learn where to find the right light for photographing any handmade project, how to create a professional environment for taking your photos, explore a few downloadable apps to assist you in your quest for the perfect photo, and give you one sure-fire tip that is certain to take your photos from drab to FAB. We'll even share our favorite DIY solutions so you can set up great photos at home without breaking the bank! Finally, we'll practice hands-on so you get experience setting up your own stage and lighting for a signature look and receive immediate feed-back from the experts.
