Abstract Photography with Your iPad
This class focuses on creating photographic images using the Apple iPad as the camera. Students will utilize the Photo Booth icon found on the iPad’s home page to generate a series of photogenic images. These images will then be edited with “apps” (photo/graphic arts applications). The objective is to utilize the iPad to create abstract photography.
We will design the artwork with 3-D objects, glass, plastic, fabric, leather, paint, flat art pieces, and light tables. One session will concentrate on designing interesting portrait set-ups. The final class will focus on a field trip to the Montclair Museum of Art, where we will photograph the museum’s exterior architecture, art, and flora.
Participants will experiment with light and composition, exposure and digital layering, and add text and graphics to their compositions. The final product can be printed on paper, fabric, and metal.
An iPad, lighting cord, and charging plug are required for the class. Participants will need to purchase at least two photo apps from the online Apple App Store (approximately $10.00).
This class will take place in Studio A at MAM. In the event that the museum must close, the class will continue online via Zoom.
