September 2002 Demo

Our demonstrator for September 2002 was Joe Leto.

Joe gave a slide presentation and a talk on how to photograph your artwork and get professional results.

We have some photographs of the event in case you could not make it to the talk in person. You can click on any of the images on this page to view a larger version of it. Then, use the Back button on your browser to return to this page.

How to Photograph your Artwork

(Almost Easily, but less Expensive!)

Joseph Leto is no stranger to professional photography, and for that matter, neither to art. Some of his art training includes the Museum of Fine Arts School and the Art Institute, Boston. His early love of art was only sidelined by him holding a camera. His mother bought him a Kodak Brownie when he was 10 years old, and by the mid-seventies, he had become a professional photographer. He joined assorted state, regional and national professional photographers associations in which he won numerous ribbons and awards. He served on some of their boards for over fifteen years, including positions as Vice President.

Leto's photography spans many different areas and includes Commercial, Industrial, Portraiture, Presentational, Medical, and Event photography. He has taken photographs for many numerous Fortune 500 companies and other clients, including the White House. He has photographed many highly recognizable personalities. His art and photography can be seen around the world in trade publications, magazines, ads, and more.

Joe's session was for the serious artist who wants to properly photograph their flat artwork or 3-dimensional, for gallery and magazine submissions, four-color printing, contests, and other needs that come up. He took us through each piece of equipment that you will need, how to set it up, and use it. We learned, using the proper film, his precise technique to get the correct exposure and suitable colors for that "quality look" you want ... consistently!
