My second series of classes on Jewelry Photography starts this Saturday at the West Point Loma campus of San Diego Continuing Education. Classes run from 10 am to 1 pm on three consecutive Saturdays — July 23rd, July 30 & August 6th.
The first class will explore the basics of digital photography and concentrate on cameras and lenses.
The second and third classes will focus in on creating a working studio in a small space and lighting your work. During these two classes, we’ll actually set-up a studio I created for under $100 and we’ll shoot student jewelry pieces.
During the third week, after another shooting session, we’ll wind things up with a short introduction to digital photo-editing.
The classes will be held at the West City Center Campus of SDCE, 3249 Fordham Street, San Diego, CA, 92110. We’ll be in Room 210, the same room where Deb Jemmott teaches metalsmithing.
For those unfamiliar with SDCE procedures, there’s no pre-registration. It’s first
come, first served. Just show up the first morning. The fee is $26, with a $15
materials fee. The class filled up last term, so come early.
I’m excited. My aim is to help jewelry artists do a better job of shooting their work. I hope to see you there!
