Digital Identity: Extending your Audience Through Image Creation and Design

December 3, 2016 9:00am-3:00pm

New Hampshire Institute of Art Fuller Hall, Digital Lab RM.202, 156 Hanover St. Manchester, NH. 

In this one-day workshop we will cover methods for creating a smart, savvy and professional web presence.  The morning will focus  on producing images, and organizing and formatting them to fit a website. In the afternoon session, you will learn how to communicate through social media, marketing strategies, and website design. Participants will begin work on social media presence and learn about the importance of consistent branding. Bring images to work with, and any logos and content you have already created. Please also have a way to store digital media in mind be it a flash drive, Dropbox or other method.

The goal of this workshop is to help students, alumni and members create photographs of their artwork and learn some techniques for using the images on the web. Gary Samson, Photography Chairperson, will help attendees photograph one or two pieces of their artwork and will briefly go over various techniques for non-photographers to produce photographs of their work for social media and the web. Gary will do a short overview of how Lightroom can be used to manipulate images. NHIA Professor Mike Ariel will then be addressing how to label art work and use the SlideShow module inside Lightroom. He will demonstrate how to organize, create and export a finished slideshow. NHIA Professor Lisa Cyr will talk about creating websites and social media pages.
