It’s been a busy time. Last weekend, I participated in the first-ever Metal Clay By The Bay conference in downtown San Diego, photographing participants’ work. I’ll have much more on this event and my work there in an upcoming post.
Tomorrow, Saturday August, 17, I’ll be speaking at a meeting of the Bead Society of San Diego County. The talk will take place at the Mingei Museum in Balboa Park. There’s an admission charge for the museum if you’re not a member (but it is one of my favorite museums in town) and there’s a small charge to attend the bead society meeting ($4, I think), if you’re not a society member. The meeting starts at 10, and I’ll be on around 10:30 am.
I’ll focus my talk on my Top 10 Suggestions for Improving Jewelry Photography, a topic originally developed as part of my regular column in Metal Clay Today magazine. There will be handouts.
There will also be a slide show featuring photos of beautiful jewelry and objects, with explanations on how many of the shots were set-up and lighted.
Should be helpful and fun! I hope to see you there.
p.s. There are four cool exhibitions going at the Mingei this weekend…
