For those wanting to add to knowledge about photographing an object or two (read pots) there is a workshop at Objectspace next Saturday.
While this this is with Polaroid, it is the lighting that needs to be learned. Lighting is the essence of making an intelligible entry for a competition like Portage or some off-shore competition, or the ASP annual for that matter. For a gold coin donation it is worth spending an hour or two.
Just remember that a Still Life is a construct and a judge/juror for a competition will need to clearly view profile. Just concentrate on the lighting techniques….
19 July 2pm-4pm
Object of still life. Artist Janet Lilo will help you make your own still life composition and capture the still life on film. You’ll be working with a Polaroid camera, creating photographs that you can take away with you as a keepsake. No need to book, just turn up on the day with a gold coin donation. Objectspace, Ponsonby, Auckland
If anyone attends – be pleased to have comments.
