Instructor: Elaine Palmer

Workshop Description: We photograph our handwovens for many reasons:  to catalog our personal work, for submission to juried shows, to post on our websites, on Etsy, and for printed publications.  This talk discusses design and technical considerations when photographing and styling handwovens for different media.  The talk includes discussion of studio lighting vs. on location ambient lighting (the sun), product and on-figure photography, outline vs. simple environment, and styling techniques Elaine used when photographing handwovens for the Weavers’ Guild of Boston’s 90th Anniversary book, Interlaced.  There will be a short demo of the lighting technique and styling at the end of the presentation.
