When I took photos of my work I would often use my phone to take pictures, which was great for quick photos to show my process. However since lock down and having my artwork assessed digitally, I have found that a weak point of mine is my photo documentation skills. I often used the auto setting on a digital camera or I used my phone, both of which did not turnout well. My photos would be grainy (I now know that that was due to the ISO being too high) as well as issues with composition and being under exposed. I also had no idea how to edit my photos, so there were problems that I could easily fix, however I didn’t know how.
To fix these problems I now have a DSLR camera, I take photos in the manual setting and I now understand the ISO, aperture and shutter speed, so that I can take photos in different settings and know how to adjust my camera to get a better photograph. I also had a session where we looked at photoshop RAW edit and how I can correct and enhance my photos.
Here are a few photos that I took and edited from the workshop.
