20111209_GK_GPM_Arcade_Studio_MG_0701 copy.png

If you are a local maker hoping to use your smartphone to shoot crisp, professional quality photos of your handmade items for Etsy or Ebay, this workshop is for you! Local photographer Grant Kaye guides participants through the lens of a smartphone by sharing his tips on setting up your shot, making your photograph, editing and making your products look great! Participants will meet at Atelier to learn the basics of shooting and editing photographs with the FREE phone app Adobe Lightroom Mobile (which requires a free Adobe Account).

We will then work from a predetermined shot and product list, using products borrowed from Atelier. We will make use of available light as well as introduce the use of a table-top light tent. Once the shots are captured, Grant will guide students through the editing process right in the Lightroom App, no computer needed! You'll be on your way to selling your products right from your phone in no time.
