How to Photograph Art Work Feb. 8

How to Photograph Art Work

El Cerrito - On Monday, February 8, the El Cerrito Art Association will present a program on How to Photograph Your Artwork. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Garden Room of the El Cerrito Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane.

All artists need high quality photographs of their work to submit to art shows and competitions, and to represent their work online. Producing these photos is not as easy or as straightforward as it might seem.

Mark Pemberton, a professional photographer from the East Bay, will show techniques, tips and tricks to produce these photographs using a digital point-and-shoot or SLR camera, and homemade apparatus. The presentation will include photographing both flat and 3D art, as well as a few special applications. He will also explain how to prepare photos for uploading to a website.

Mark Pemberton does fine art, portrait, animal, and commercial photography. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, as well as several Bay Area photography and arts organizations. Mark and his wife, Cathy, who is also a professional photographer, have won numerous awards in Northern California for their photography. Their polar bear photographs from Churchill, Manitoba, were published in the April 2009 edition of Elle Quebec magazine. Mark also creates digital art, and produces fine art prints and photo note cards.

For further information about the program, call Barbara Rockhold, 510-237-3457 or email brockhold@earthlink.net.
Run dates: 2010-01-17 - 2010-02-08
