Art and Artifact Documentation Workshops
This workshop is for archivists, artists, crafts people, historians and others that need to make an 'accurate' photographic record. If a person does not know how to do this, then they may spend scarce resources paying someone else to do it for them. But with some basic tuition, guidelines and practice it is possible, for the majority of purposes, to make an ‘accurate’ record, whether it be of books, ceramics, drawings, installations, historic artifacts, maps, paintings, records, sculptures or textiles.
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 images for archives, catalogues, emails, presentations, press releases, proposals, submissions to galleries and websites.
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 able to communicate knowledgeably 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.
To take part you will need:
I can provide a small number of cameras and tripods if participants don't have their own. Please let us know if this is something you need. If you are thinking of buying a camera I would recommend you do the workshop first. You will then better understand the features to look for in a camera.
