Photographing My Work

Posted on July 25, 2016

Photographing my own work is one of the most difficult tasks! Often the photos look dull and grey in comparison to the actual painting because they are photographed in the shade. When I put the work in the sun for the photo it has too much shine and that doesn’t work either. So, I have to run all my images for the website or Facebook through Photoshop first. The image on the left is the raw one and on the right, the cleaned up one. I crop the image, resize it, and often I have to play with the contrast and brightness to make it resemble the original, but it never looks as good.
