Nicole Schlaeppi – Sept 2020

Lecture: Easy Setup for taking Great Photos of Fiber Art
Sept 2, 2020 at 11:00 AM (during the guild meeting)
Non-guild members are welcome
Online Zoom meeting

In these days of Covid-19 health guidelines and restrictions, many in our guild are looking to sell and promote their fiber arts online instead of in-person. One important consideration is how to take compelling photos that allow potential buyers to see the real beauty and quality of our work. We are pleased to announce that Bay Area photographer Nicole Schlaeppi will be giving a lecture on this topic at the September guild meeting. Nicole will talk about easy and simple photographic setups that don’t cost a lot of money, but will still enable us to take great photos of our work for selling and displaying online. Those who are not interested in selling online, but post photos of their work on online platforms such as Instagram will also benefit from attending this lecture. Note: The lecture may start closer to 11:30 depending on how long the show and tell of the summer guild challenge takes.

Nicole Schlaeppi is an artist who focuses on how reality intersects with the make-believe. Based in San Francisco, Nicole obtained a Bachelors of Fine Art from Seattle University and eventually moved back home to California. Her photographic work has been published in fashion magazines, art catalogues, and art galleries around the San Francisco Bay Area. Nicole is also a Photoshop and photography educator.
