Class Details:
Nothing is more disappointing than finishing a FAB fiber project and not being able to take an equally FAB photo of it. In Stitch & Click we will show you how to take great photos that show off your stitch and fiber work. Don’t have an expensive camera or fancy photography studio equipment? No worries! We will show you simple tips and tricks to use what you have around the house to create photos that will really show off all that hard work you put into your stitching project. Bring your digital camera, (ANY digital camera!) and we will play with lighting techniques and tools to help you learn to take the best photos of your fiber work. We’ll also teach you how to make smart choices for picking good basic lighting and DIY photography equipment without breaking the bank. Goals: Basic understanding of a good photo; learn the unique qualities of fiber projects that create special photography issues and how to overcome each one; understand how to use any digital camera, point and shoot, and even camera phones to get great results; learn about DIY camera equipment you already have in your house; take a GREAT photo or two! Technique Requirements: Should understand the basic settings on your digital camera.
Supplies for Class:
Camera, plus projects, yarn, or swatches to photograph
