Workshop: Introduction to Computer Generated Photography

£100/£80 members & concessions

With artist & educator Richard Kolker

How can you create a “photograph” in a 3D graphics programme? How can you arrange a scene, light an environment, and control a virtual camera with software?

As part of our HYPERANALOGUE Geekender, we will be running this special practical workshop which will introduce you to the key techniques necessary to create a computer generated photograph. Under the guidance of artist Richard Kolker, you will explore the fundamentals of CG modelling, materials, lighting and rendering, from a photographer's perspective. 

The workshop will be followed in the evening by our HYPERANALOGUE party, where you can enjoy some mechanical techno with DJ Graham Dunning, get your portrait taken in our Camerascanner studio, sip a cocktail, and experience performances and demonstrations by artists and image makers co-curated by the London Alternative Photography Collective.

Participants will be required to bring their own laptop and mouse, running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or above or Mac OS X 10.11.6 or above. However, the Gallery may be able to loan a laptop to you for the session should you require it. Please email to request this in advance of booking.

By booking for this event you agree to our Terms & Conditions
