hosts ‘Digitally Documenting Your Art’ Photography Workshop,
Area residents interested in gaining insight into the importance
of professional photographs in showcasing artwork for
exhibitions and portfolios are invited to attend a daylong
workshop titled “Digitally Documenting Your Art: Your SMART
Phone Isn’t Really Smart Enough” at Owens Community College
on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013.
Presented by Owens, Lourdes University, and the Toledo
Federation of Art Societies, the event will take place from
10 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts on
the Toledo-area Campus. The event is open to the public.
The workshop will commence at 10 a.m. with a presentation by
Owens Adjunct Instructor of Fine and Performing Arts Margaret
Lockwood-Lass about the benefits of having quality digital
photographs of artwork in building a website or blog, creating a
professional portfolio and securing exhibitions. Topics will
also include taking digital photographs of artwork without a lot
of expensive equipment and when artwork requires a professional
photographer, among others. The presentation will take place in
the College’s Center for Fine and Performing Arts Mainstage
Beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the College’s Center for Fine and
Performing Arts Photography Studio Room 233, workshop attendees
can have professional-quality photographs taken of their artwork
by students within the Owens Photo Club. Separate stations will
be set up to photograph different types of artwork such as 2-D
(paintings, prints and textiles), tabletop-sized 3-D artwork,
3-D artwork that must be positioned on the floor, reflective 3-D
artwork (glass and metal) and small artwork (jewelry). Each
individual will receive digital files on a CD or as an
electronic transmission of their artwork.
The cost for the first artistic piece is $25 and each subsequent
item will cost $20 or less with the same lighting arrangement.
All proceeds will benefit the Owens Photo Club student
organization to offset costs to attend professional photography
The Owens Photo Club was founded with the overall mission of
providing personal and professional enrichment and educational
opportunities for all Owens students, including students
majoring in the College’s commercial photography technology and
photography academic programs.
