Description: This project oriented demo is of a twisted arc type candleholder. I’ll briefly go over the concepts of multi axis spindle turning and then show a video of the process of creating this candle holder. There will be time for questions as well or discussion.
Want to learn how to photograph your woodturnings? Whether applying for exhibitions, grants, promoting yourself via your website or social media, or just trying to keep a portfolio of your work, good photography is important. As a photographer for Kodak, John traveled throughout the U.S., teaching photographic seminars, working in the National Parks, and shooting sporting events for Kodak videos. He also worked as a studio photographer in Kodak’s Photographic Technology Division, shooting still lifes and portraits. In this demo John will cover:
Basic (inexpensive) solutions and advanced dedicated setups
Exploring the three lighting options: Daylight, speedlights, “hot” lights
The key to good pictures: understanding lighting ratios, light direction, light quality
Backgrounds – graduated, fabric, natural, etc.
Photographing glossy, translucent, and textured surfaces
Understanding depth of field
Post processing: applying the finishing touches with image processing software
