TIPS for ORGANIZING & USING REFERENCE PHOTOS on YOUR iPAD with Lauretta Jones

The iPad is supplanting printed photos as reference for paintings and drawings for many artists. Its resolution and rich color, ability to zoom and crop photos, and easily seek out images on the internet makes it a valuable tool in the studio. This workshop will show you ways to save and organize your photos so you don’t waste time hunting for them and will include ideas on how to use its built-in tools to improve your composition and bring out the details of your photos. Please bring your iPads, a charger and your questions.
