PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR ARTWORK

Here are tips to help you take good quality photos of your artwork to submit on-line:

You can even use your phone.

Use natural light.

Artificial light can make the colours look odd. Take photos in an area with lots of natural light but avoid direct sunlight.

Don’t leave dead space around your artwork.
