Dates: 8/23 - 8/23

Last summer when Michael showed his slide presentation, someone asked, "Who takes your photos? They are excellent!" Michael replied, "I've always taken my own photos." Good photos are essential to successful presentations of one's work, but a professional photographer could charge as much as $1000 per day to shoot quality photos of your furniture.
In this one-day class, Michael will demonstrate and explain everything from low-tech, inexpensive photography tools to the more complex, like building your own simple light box. He will explain the basics of camera operation including setting F-stops and shutter speeds; choosing lenses, tripods, and backgrounds; and using a light meter. Michael will show samples of his work and describe how the photos were set up and taken. This would be a great class for anyone who makes furniture.
