    How to Take Pictures of Artwork for Your Art Portfolio How to Take Pictures of Artwork for Your Art Portfolio Presentation Transcript

    • Lighting
    • Lighting If the sun is too bright, find shade to dial down the intensity of the artwork as it appears on your camera
    • Lighting If you wish to shoot your artwork indoors, use powerful lights to avoid certain parts of your artworks from being darker. The higher the wattage of the light, the more evenly the light will be distributed to your artwork.
    • Lighting Set up your lights so that it is approximately four meters away from the artwork and 45 degrees from where you will be taking the picture.
    • Lighting For paintings, set up your lights on one corner (still 45 degrees from the artwork and you) to cast shadows on the strokes and reveal texture.
    • Lighting Having two lights, setting them up on both sides of the artworks minimizes texture and can remove wrinkles on the artwork’s surface.
    • Lighting Turn off the room lights when shooting indoors.
    • Positioning your artwork
    • Lighting Place your artwork on a wall so that it stands upright.
    • Lighting Make sure that the wall is white or plain so that the focus is on the artwork.
