Photographing your artwork
Here are tips to help you take good quality photos of your artwork to submit on-line:
- You don’t need a fancy camera.
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.
|Incorrect - artificial light||Correct - natural light|
- Get close.
Don't leave dead space around your artwork.
|Incorrect - lots of dead space|
- Get straight on.
Taking a photo from above, below or the side distorts perspective. Get straight on to your artwork.
|Incorrect - from an angle|
