Ray Mata Demo – How To Photograph Your Artwork

General Meeting & Demo: 10:00 – Noon

Demo Description:
Ray will demonstrate how to photograph art that is on paper, canvas, and 3 dimensional art. Aspects of photographing art include how to set up the piece of art, shooting through glass, managing glare on canvas, multiple types of lighting, backdrops for 3d art pieces. Critical areas are white balance for accurate colors, focus control of the subject matter, and post edit techniques and file types.

Bio: Ray is an artist, photographer and film maker. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, and has spent years working as a commercial and lifestyle photographer as well as continuing his art with oils, sculptures, and other media. He has had fashion photography published in Vogue UK (July 2013), worked with Discovery Channel's Ghost Adventures, and has done extensive work for Hotel Tonight.com as well as Angie's List. Even as importantly, Ray is a member of the SVFAL and we are so pleased to have him call the Red House home and allow us to call him a friend.
