This Best Practices workshop is the follow-up the introductory workshop on May 19th. It is designed for advanced photographers and artists who are ready to take the next step in learning the best practices for professionally documenting their artwork. The webinar will dive deep into professional techniques used for photographing artwork with artificial light in a studio setting. Anthony and Colleen will walk you through a typical studio set-up from start to finish, and discuss software and techniques used in post-production in depth. This workshop is designed for intermediate and advanced photographers, it is not designed for phone camera users or novice photographers. We highly recommend having your camera and manual accessible during the workshop.

About Shine Portrait Studio:
Shine reimagines the possibilities of a traditional “Main Street” portrait studio in Newark, NJ as something more. In the spirit of the monumental photographer James Van Der Zee (whose first professional photography job was in this same spot in Newark), Shine invites and collaborates with visiting artists, curators, and others to create new projects that connect with Rutgers University-Newark students, the broader community and that radiate beyond. Shine is also a fully-realized, cutting-edge photography studio with state-of-the-art equipment and technical support free to use for the entire regionally-based creative community, including artists, photographers, stylists, fashion designers, and other entrepreneurs. The Shine facility occupies 3,500 square feet of studio space at Express Newark in the former Hahne & Company building located at 609 Broad Street, Newark, NJ.
