How to photograph paintings Automatic translate
Tip 1: Use the right equipment when photographing your work.
Most digital phones today come with great professional-grade features. So if you don’t have a professional camera, don’t worry.
However, if you are using a digital camera, make sure it has some features - white balance settings, F-stop (aperture settings), ISO, and the ability to turn off the flash. Also, make sure it’s at least 5 megapixels.
If you can shoot in Raw format, all the better. It is also necessary to use a tripod so that the camera does not move while shooting. Make sure your white balance is set to match the lighting you’re working with that day (daylight, overcast, etc.), then make sure your aperture (F-stop) is set to 8 or around 8 (or landscape level). Finally, make sure the ISO is set to around 100 to preserve image detail.
Tip 2: Set up the scene before shooting your artwork
Pay attention to how you arrange your artwork. If we are talking about work on canvas that can be hung on the wall, then you need to photograph directly on it.
If the artwork needs to be angled against the wall, make sure the camera is shooting at the same angle (a tripod will come in handy in this case). Simplify the background as much as possible and use neutral colors. Of course, a white background color is preferred when photographing works of art, as it facilitates the editing process.
Tip 3: Photograph your work in perfect lighting.
Lighting is everything. Depending on the weather, some artists choose to photograph their work outdoors on an overcast day. Indoors, it’s best to photograph your work by a window that has diffused natural light, but not directly in front of it.
Never photograph your work in direct sunlight.
If the weather isn’t on your side, you want to create a more controlled environment to ensure consistency in all your work, or if you’re burning midnight to turn in your work at the last minute, you’ll need a lighting kit.
Tip 4: Save and edit your work.
Once you have taken the photos, you need to download them to your computer and start editing. Whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, both have photo editing software that you can use.
However, if you have Adobe’s Photoshop or Lightroom, we highly recommend using one of these photo-editing programs as they have advanced features.
