Verge Center for the Arts presents the upcoming in-person class, Photographing Your Artwork DIY Style with Muzi Li Rowe! Thinking about getting a jump start on setting up a home studio and learning simple yet effective techniques to photograph your artwork? This is the class for you! In this two-day class, you will learn creative ways to set up a makeshift studio at home, as well as practical ways to light 2D and 3D work including hard to photograph objects such as glass, jewelry and other works with reflective surfaces. Supplemental instruction will include learning how to choose the right light from any hardware store and make simple light modifiers to render the most accurate color in the photograph. Recommendations on useful photography apps and budget-friendly equipment will also be provided. No previous photography experience is necessary, all you need to bring is the camera you currently have (yes, smartphone camera counts for this class) and a work of art you wish to photograph.
