Photography for the Painter

Capturing Inspiring Shots with Doug Swinton

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

If you’re tired of using the same old photos to paint from, not getting what you want from the photos you are taking or just want to capture some fun and easy photos that will help you in your painting, this workshop is for you. In one fun afternoon, Doug Swinton can help you understand what makes a great photo and how you can capture them for yourself!

Date: Sunday, May 26, 2019, 1:00 – 4:00pm
Cost: $75

Bring your camera in and Doug will show you some wonderful ways to get better shots that will work particularly well for painting inspiration.

Doug will also talk about the following points during this workshop:

  • How to better design your shots for painting.
  • Downloading and cropping your photos.
  • Ideas on printing and using a monitor to view your photos.
  • Though we will do some editing, this class is not a Photoshop class and we will not be discussing Photoshop methods.

Audience: This workshop is ideal for adult painters, beginners to professionals!
