Cost: $150

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.

Key points:

  • How to make inexpensive photo light boxes
  • How to bounce light
  • How to compose an artistic photo
  • How to operate a digital camera
  • How to organize your photographs

There is a $45 annual registration fee that will be added to your the total amount of the class if this is the first class you are registering for this season.
