Art Is Being Guide to Photographing Your Work
Beginning next month at the San Diego Art Institute (a non profit contemporary art gallery located in Balboa Park) I have been asked to create a series of workshops to teach aspiring artists how to photograph their work.
Often times with the creation of a finished piece the artist does not pursue the knowledge on how to get the work out there to the world, how to market the work, and how to preserve the imagery in an effective way for years to come. All to often they leave the task of photographing their work in the hands of an unprofessional or worse, their iPhone.
So why is learning to photograph your work so important?
Not only photographing your work properly it boost the perceived value of your work, it provides a more accurate record of the imagery that can help boost sales or stimulate growth for future submissions. In addition to the monetary benefits the professional photos also help articulate scale while providing a schematic into the setup or mockup of your proposed project.
Below are some helpful steps to help you become an expert at photographing your work and boost your client sales.
