How to take great pictures of your paintings


I use to struggle so much taking pictures of my paintings. They always ended up with some type of light reflection coming from somewhere or the colors were just not right.  

There are many ways to do it but I am happy to share with you how it works for me.

How to take pictures of your painting

Place your canvas up right on a wall, easel or chair.

I use a piece of wood to lift my painting up.

Place your camera on a trypod

For best results use a remote control (or self trigger)

Don’t zoom in too much


So simple and it works. Have fun taking your own pictures!
