The class will cover both 2 Dimensional and 3 Dimensional artwork. The format includes both lecture and hands on work, so bring your work to photograph yourself. Recommendations will be made for the equipment you will need to get good results. Finally we’ll discuss when you can do it yourself and when you’ll need to hire a professional.
