Learn some tips and tricks on how to photograph your artwork. During February's Carbon County Art League Meeting. The presentation led by Jim Denicola is about how to get the most from your digital camera.
What do all the letters and numbers mean? We will discuss an overview of the Exposure Triangle, Camera and scene Modes and Lighting.
Use these tips and tricks to take beautiful photography or to take exceptional photos of your original artwork. When photographing your own artwork to sell online or enter exhibitions here are a couple tips:
Use natural daylight or daylight light bulbs
Hold your camera at the same angle as the painting to avoid getting any perspective
Avoid glare - you can use something as simple as a white sheet or poster board to reflect light
Shoot high resolution images (but reduce the image quality to 72 dpi to use for online images)
