Just a reminder: my third series of Jewelry Photography classes starts tomorrow, October 1st at San Diego Continuing Education. The class has been expanded to four sessions that run from 9 am to 12 pm on consecutive Saturdays through October 22nd.
We will discuss the basics of digital photography and concentrate on preferred cameras and lenses. We’ll create a working studio in a small space and explore ways to light your work. We’ll actually shoot jewelry pieces. And we’ll wind things up with a short introduction to digital photo-editing and a brief discussion of marketing on the web (“…now that you have better photos, here are a few opportunities to market your work on the internet.”)
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 206. 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 $60, with a $15 materials fee. The class filled up in July, so come a little early.
The photo below is of Jonna Faulkner’s beautiful Seraphinite and Silver Pendant. All of the techniques required to create this photograph, from shooting to lighting to photo-editing, will be taught during my four-week class.
