If you’re an artist you know how important it is to get excellent, accurate photos of your finished pieces before they leave your studio. At the least, you want a record of your work and a way to include sold pieces in your portfolio. Or maybe you’d like to print cards or reproductions of some of your creations.
Taking detailed, color-accurate photos of your work requires a DSLR or mirrorless camera that can shoot in the raw file format, a tripod, some inexpensive but careful lighting, a color calibration target and Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. Your initial setup is done carefully, one step at a time, but once you’ve nailed it down the next photography session will go more quickly. The result will be consistent, professional images of your artwork, taken when you need them!
