Photographing for Painting
Creating perfect reference photos for your art. Design your painting with your camera.
Learn the essential elements of taking and editing photographs with your iPhone. Taking photographs for beautiful photographs is very different than taking photographs for reference for paintings. we will go over: format, where to place the horizon, looking for atmosphere, angles, look for big shapes, shadows, where is the focus, capturing a mood, lighting is key... and so much more. I will show you many examples of unsuccessful to successful attempts and capturing a wonderful image that you can use for your art.
Editing apps will turn any mundane photograph into an amazing image. You will learn how to fix perspective, straighten lines, adjust contrast, and saturate color. You will be able to heighten the highlights or adjust the shadows. Everything you need to know to get the most out of your iPhone images. No longer will you take only snapshots.
I will give you handouts that will help your ongoing photography and editing ideas. NOTE: I am introducing 6 new fabulous Photography apps for photography and Editing.
