  1. I already have a topic in the Forums on the subject of some good photography book recommendations, so I am not going to duplicate what I have already written there. Of course, the best way to start taking great photos is to get out there with your camera and start shooting! However, most of us can also use a bit of a grounding in the basics - or even some of the more advanced techniques. And there is nothing like a good book on a cold, wet and windy day, now, is there?! If you want to have a look at my Forums post, just click this: And if you would like to share the details of any great photography book that you have come across, please do share them, either here, as a reply to this article - or in the Forums. Thank you!!
  2. It took years for me to learn some very basic stuff about photographing my art. Today's point and shoots digital camera's are so much better, but be careful, there are some very special features that you really have got to have in order to shoot oil paintings. One feature that will allow you to get about 95% glare out of the print! Using a CPL filter, circular polarizing lens. More info here on how to get the lens for your camera, or at least what to look for on the camera to see if you can even add it! What features to look for in a digital camera and more info on actually shooting the work. Shooting your own work the easy way!
  3. From former member, nicbrun77: I can only say what works for me... I have only tried pencil drawings and pastel paintings so far. The pastels, I always photograph before framing behind glass. (In the case of an oil painting, I would photograph the thing before applying any vanish?) I always take the photographs outdoors - in a bright spot but out of direct sunlight. I make sure that the flash is turned off and I am not casting a shadow on the painting. If there is enough, well diffused light, I don't think you need a tripod - just try to hold the camera reasonably steady while you press the shutter. The cameras that most people are using these days all have auto-focus... If you are using auto-focus, usually you have to depress the shutter half way, keep it like that for a second or two, in order to allow the focusing mechanism to do its thing - and THEN press the shutter all the way. Lastly, before taking the shot, I make sure that the camera is positioned exactly on the axis of the center of the painting and not skewed at an angle. Oh! And then you really need to use any simple photo editing software, just to crop your image before uploading. It also helps if you can reduce your image file size to about 350Kb or less, so that it doesn't take for ever to upload. (I use U-lead Photo Explorer - both for cropping and reducing the image size. Mine came with the camera - but I believe if you do a search on Google, you can down-load U-Lead Photo Explorer for free?) 'Hope this helps!
  4. This category is for all members, whether they consider photography to be their prime field of interest in the world of art - (or as a secondary interest to their main discipline); to upload and share their own experiences and/or general advice that may be of use to other members and any aspiring photographer guest visitors to the site. I am not an expert on anything - least of all photography. So please, can I have some input from some of the members? Let's make artfreaks.com a website by the members - and for the members! If you don't want to start your own article, you can just reply by way of a comment to this article. And new members are always welcome! Everyone loves to see photos, so here is just a random shot of the so-called "Bullet Train" or Shinkansen in Japan!
