We photograph our collections for a variety of reasons: cataloging, promotion, and condition reporting, just to name a few. In this webinar, join Ann Stegina, Senior Collections Manager of the Anchorage Museum, to learn some budget friendly basic tips to improve your object photography. Topics will include: Equipment, Camera Settings, Lighting, Post-Production and other resources for further learning. DSLR, point and shoot, or camera phone, we’ll make it work!
This webinar will be interactive at times in order to best serve the attendants. You may be asked to send in a photo of your photography space or answer questions such as, “What equipment do you have? Where do you photograph your objects?”
