Ed Ward

Edward’s education consists of a BA in Liberal Arts from the College of NJ, post graduate studies in Fine Art Printing, Photography, Commercial Printing and related Digital Technologies. Edward was employed in Commercial Printing from 1987-2015 with Eastman Kodak Company. Over the past 30 years Ed has worked with many well known artists, appeared on the cover of “Arts New Jersey Magazine”, which is included in the permanent collection, and has demonstrated printmaking on WPVI TV in Philadelphia. We would be remiss if we did not mention Ed’s Gallery experience including owning, managing and working with artists directly to plan, curate, and hang shows. This includes framing, frame repair, art cleaning, archival framing, restoration, digital photography and scanning.

Photographing Your Artwork Workshop

Long time artist and WAA member Edward Ward will be presenting the first of a three session workshop on how to properly photograph artwork for print, websites and social media applications. Demonstration will be given on proper lighting, correct camera angles, preparation of artwork, and proper exposure. Artists are encouraged to bring two dimensional or small three dimensional work and their cameras or cell phones. 

For best results, work should not be under glass however, if works under glass can not be avoided there can be discussion of how best to avoid reflection. Most of the session will be the mechanics of photographing artwork for best results followed by a brief overview of digital image software. Images should be stored on digital media such as USB flash drives. 

This is a great opportunity to take the many hours you have spent to produce a beautiful piece of artwork and learn how to photograph/reproduce it properly.
