The Andres Institute of Art will host a photography workshop. This is a new adventure for AIA. Lindsay Freese and Steve Hooper, professional artists from Keene, NH will instruct the participants in “Photographing 3- Dimensional Art.”
Lindsay Freese worked as a community college educator and has always approached life with a camera in his hand. Starting with 35-mm and then digital, he captures a wide variety of images, leaning toward the fine arts, and often uses post processing techniques to further enhance what he has captured with the camera. As an accomplished wood-turner he needed to capture images of his work, and these skills expanded into other areas. His work in the music industry took him to Los Angeles where he worked in musical motion picture sound track creation. He lives in New Hampshire.
Steve Hooper currently owns Hooper Visuals which is a commercial photography and videography business in Keene, NH. Additionally, Hooper teaches basic and advanced photography through the Cheshire Academy of Lifelong Learning at Keene State College and via fotoedu.org with fellow instructor Lindsay Freese.
Hooper has spent his career as a still photographer in the newspaper business. He worked at The Keene Sentinel as a staff photographer. He is currently Executive Producer of a hi-definition 90 minute documentary about Mount Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in America, titled Monadnock-The Mountain That Stands Alone. The film is to be shown locally and on PBS.
The class will begin with an overview of the day, plus handouts and references. There will be a review of the basics of photography, moving away from the “automatic” setting and gaining more control over the captured image. There will be instruction on photographing small art objects, using tabletop studios or neutral backdrops. Depth-of-field, lighting, and understanding reflection and shadow will be addressed. Students will photograph small art objects they have brought to the workshop, in several pre-prepared settings provided by the instructors. A limited number of small art objects will be available on site. Several of the images will be critiqued by the instructors.
Students will bring their own snacks, drinks, and a lunch to the workshop. A question and answer session based on the morning session will be conducted during this time.
Following lunch there will be instruction on photographing large art objects. Students will be provided maps of the sculpture park, then sent to explore the trails and the Institute sculptures, photographing those which capture their imagination. Several student images will be critiqued by the instructors.
There will be very basic introduction and demonstration of post-processing software: Photoshop, NIK, and Topaz. Wrap-up evaluations will conclude the day.
Parking at the studio is available. Carpooling is encouraged. AIA staff will be available to answer questions about the institute, the Sculpture Park, and future events. Potable water and a restroom are available. There are picnic tables available. Dress comfortably, with good footwear for hiking the trails, rain or shine.
A $100.00 fee for non-AIA members, and $80 for members. Registration will end on September 15, in order to have adequate time to organize materials, and have spaces set up. The class is limited to 25 participants.
