The most important class a jewelry designer can take!

by Jennifer Kenyon on July 12, 2010

The class will cover photography for marketing, internet sales, inventory records, juried presentations, and framed art presentations.  We will cover lighting and background setup.  There will also be a general discussion on computer photo processing.  We will be making our own set of table top photography tools. Each  student may take home, their own simple setup to keep.  There will be 5 work stations set up for students to use, each a different style.
