Online Interactive Workshop: Photography Skills-Boost for Social Media!

We're absolutely delighted to welcome a NEW guest tutor to the CraftyMonkies stable of talent: Australian Rachel Hill (AKA The Barefoot Crafter) joins us with a fabulous first class to kickstart her time in the spotlight - Photography Skills-Boost for Social Media, a class aimed at helping you produce great photographs of your wondrous crafting makes!...

Introduction by Rachel, The Barefoot Crafter:-

Hi everyone! I’m Rachel, a crafter & photographer, and I simply love taking pretty photos of my cute makes! Instagram is a fabulous way to share our crafting adventures, but for many of us, finding a balance between spending time crafting and spending time setting up the photos to share our projects can sometimes feel like a step too far - that is, until now!...

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Simple Social Storytelling is all about helping to find that balance. We will look at how to set up, style, shoot and edit photos to showcase your projects and the stories behind them. Props and equipment are fun, but they not only cost money, but take up storage space – and need time to set up. It can sometimes feel like we need all the “stuff” to get good photos. In this class, I will share how you can still create great photos with limited equipment, and even less space! We will focus on using elements of your project to set up the styling, and photograph it using natural light, with the help of a couple of basic items you may have laying around the house. We will also look at editing our photos to make them pop, using free apps. There will be an opportunity to share your set up for feedback and tweaking, as well as the option to share your photo for me to edit live in class.

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

This class is best suited to beginners, and those who love sharing on Instagram and would like to add a little razzle-dazzle to improve their photos!

Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

While there are no materials needed for this class, you may like to have a project on hand to play with styling and photographing during the class. Other items you may like to have on hand:-

  • Offcuts, materials & tools from the project you are styling.
  • White cardboard for lighting practice
  • Charged mobile phone
  • Snapseed app downloaded
