Japanese Clay Doll Making and Photography 人形と情景制作
Saturday, April 19th
【Event Details: Fascinating Points】
is one of the most traditional products in Japan, and those have played a significant role in Japanese culture even today. Kids and adults alike have bought dolls, and collected them. Aside from just playing and making these dolls, you can also take pictures of them. Well, have you ever taken pictures of dolls in miniature set? Not just shot in any manner you like, but care more background and light in the tiny theater (set). In this workshop, you will enjoy making Japanese style dolls (kimono woman or samurai) out of clay, especially making the head part, and paint them. And we move on the photography part, where we get some tips to help you with your doll photography.
About photography part, taking pictures indoors, the interior of most houses will not have enough natural light to give you a good doll photo. And small dolls and doll marks are some of the most difficult objects to photograph clearly and in focus. So Mr. Saito who is a wizard of light and shadow will show you some tips (e.g. light up, choose backgrounds, get closer, color balance, angles and much more) and demonstrate how to take better pictures in the set at home using your own digital or mobile phone camera. If you love to take photos, then you would have a variety of subjects to work on.
It would be fun to create a story with your pictures! You will surely enjoy taking photos of the doll, and get the data to make original postcards at the end!
