“Shooting Your Artwork: Boot Camp,” with Eric Law.

With an eye to the best methods of capturing artwork for portfolios, competition entry and more, this intensive one-day workshop teaches the fundamentals of how to photograph artwork with either a traditional digital camera or a mobile device.

Eric Law is a professional photographer, consultant and the founder of ShootMyArt™. He works exclusively with artists and galleries to present their artwork at its best. His clients include many well-known and emerging artists in the Detroit area and across Michigan, and his images of their artwork have appeared in books and national magazines.

Eric is a frequent lecturer to artist groups, teaches photography workshops and exhibits his own fine art photography. He is also a member of Professional Photographers of America and works from his studio in Berkley, Michigan.

“Shooting Your Artwork: Boot Camp” covers basic concepts and terminology, camera features and how to light and photograph a variety of artwork. Participants also learn how to process the images using Photoshop® Elements or a photo app and format them for exhibition entries and other uses. Whether one uses a traditional digital camera or the camera in a phone or tablet to photograph their artwork, this workshop teaches the best preparation methods for photographing.

Tuition is $145 for CTAC members, $180 for non-members; seats are limited to 12, so early registration is highly recommended. For registration or more information, visit www.crookedtree.org, or call 231.347.4337.
