Photographic Composition
oin local professional photographer, Tom Upton, for this one-day Photographic Composition Workshop. We’ll elevate casual camera busywork by looking at photographs that show the vernacular and language of photography. I will introduce to you many ways to make images stronger, with the building blocks of intelligent image making. This is brisk hands-on action, hunting and gathering elements that make photographs interesting. Minimal class monolog and maximal camera-work exercises to tune your eye. You will look, shoot, and review with a benevolent guide.

The camera will be your instrument of observation for this day. Not resting on our laurels indoors, we will go outdoors and shoot together. Then we look at our photos. In fact, we will do this twice! Don’t worry I will have your back.

So only one question remains. . . is it ART? Come and find out!

Note: Please be familiar with your camera and manual and P mode. While this class is smartphone compatible, a DSLR type camera will yield best results.

Photography Portraiture Lighting
Join Tom Upton, local commercial photographer and owner of PhotoTrainer.com for an introduction to studio and natural light portraiture class at the Pacific Art League. We will start in the studio with a demonstration of basics of classic studio lighting, where we critically, and in detail, assess light on the human face. In a good way! I will show variations of lighting for exploring the rich beauty of the human visage: single source, “Rembrandt light,” beauty, fashion, film noir, and more. Additionally, along the way I will share strategies for working with subjects who are unfamiliar with being in front of the camera. After all, we are making proper portraits and not shooting selfie candid. Finally, you get to try your eyes at this with lights, cameras and subjects.

There will be a lunch break!

In the afternoon we will learn to look at and work with natural light. Call it ambient light, incident light, or circumstantial light. This is what we have right here at our fingertips! We will explore the PAL studio for great light and will not stop there, we will visit my studio three doors down the block, and then expand into the streets and alleys around the Pacific Art League for natural lighting circumstances that respect actual portraiture.

Note: Please be familiar with your camera and manual and P mode. While this class is smartphone compatible, a DSLR type camera will yield best results.

Workshop: Have Your Artwork Professionally Photographed

Your original artwork will be professionally photographed under calibrated lighting using a 36 MB camera and is suitable for fine art giclée prints and internet use. The files will be saved on a USB memory stick in two formats (JPEG for Internet use and DNG for Printing). Approximately 20 pieces of artwork can be photographed during your hour (more if artwork is close to the same size). If time permits, basic photo editing of your images will be provided. Your artwork can be paintings, mixed media, pottery, sculpture, jewelry or anything you can carry.

Past experience has shown that 25 or so pictures can be photographed in the hour, dropping the cost to about $5 per image. In addition, if you have friends with Artwork, but not enough pieces to fill the hour, you can share your time slot and cost with them.

Discounted printing of your art on paper, canvas or metal is available to attendees. Please bring at least a 4 GB USB flash drive to hold the images, or purchase an 8GB one from instructor for $10.
