Tips for taking images of your work

To help take the best pictures possible of your work, we have found some in-depth, step-by-step tutorials to aid you in the process. The links below include a lot of details, but the key takeaways are all the same:

  • Most smartphone cameras will work well with good lighting
  • Use a window or open/glass door to use as much natural light as possible
  • Try not to shoot your work from an angle; square it up and aim for the center of the piece
