There are many reasons why you may need to take a photo of your art.
As an example:
- To keep records.
- To use the images on catalogues.
- To send the images to a magazine or newspaper.
- To create postcards based on your artwork.
- For your website or social media.
- … And many more.
But the problem you will find is to really recreate your artwork in the photo.
We all know that it is very difficult to scan or take a photo of a canvas and get it right, not to mention if we are planning to print that file in our home printer.
As your artwork is important for you, let me take the photo of it.
I will take care of your creation and do the best to get an accurate photo of it.
From the beginning I will decide if it will be better to use continuous light, flashes or natural light. Many of the substrates are not “happy” when you use the wrong light on them, think about it: is not the risk of copying the art the reason why in most of the museums you cannot use the flash ?
The angle of the light, in order to avoid reflections, is important too. Also I will use a colour pattern in order to match the colour of your art.
I will give you a high quality TIFF file that will allow you to print your artwork, also a standard JPG, perfect for internet, social media and mails.
Come and see me. I do not charge by photo but by time. It will be easy to give you a quote and I am sure it will be affordable for you.
