While I hate to see the summer fade, I've decided to embrace the sharp clear light of September, and look ahead happily to the coming months. I've got classes I can't wait to teach. That makes the future appear all that much brighter. Join me :
PHOTO SAFARI: Photographing Your FO's & the Festival
After a short intro talk & exercise to loosen up your camera/brain, we'll be heading out into the festival to use the wonderful sights & light & setting as our backdrop. You'll leave with a slew of new images , not to mention some new ideas of seeing/looking/using your camera to tell a story.
Good for all levels but please know how to use your camera, and how to change the exposure modes and turn off your flash. DSLR, point & shoot and even iphones welcome.
me?! at Vogue Knitting Live!! yayyyyyyy
Product Photography: Photographing Your FOs on Real People
Just what the title says: we'll be focussing on getting your knits & handcrafted creations to look great in photos, using real life people as your models. As always, hands-on, full of tips & techniques--and limited in size, so don't wait too long to sign up. (Must I say that of course we shall shoot sheep shots?)
I'm teaching the workshops 2 times that day: 9am-12 and also 2-5pm.
If you're interested in my Photographing Your Knits classes but maybe not ready to commit to the three hour workshop, I'll also be doing a 1 hour alide talk, 12-1 that day at Vogue Knitting Live. Join me for your lunch break!
If your life doesn't include trips to the events with the classes, or you prefer to dip your toes in just a little, with a very small investment you can try my BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY FOR KNITTERS webinar. Once your purchases itm the link is good to watch and re-watch as many timesa s you want--I'd say breaking it into 10 minute segments and trying out some of the ideas between watching would be very do-able.
Looking ahead but no dates yet
Savvy Storytelling- a day long blog writing and photogrphing seminar co-taught with Beverly Army Williams : we debuted this at Fiber College to much positive feedback, and are raring to go again. Want us? Give me a shout. galeATgzuckerDOTcom
