NEXT MEETING 30 NOVEMBER
Presentation by Geoff Comfort - Photographing Artwork for Reproduction
Good photographs of your art are essential for so many reasons - from personal records, entering competitions and exhibitions, marketing and to portraying you as an artist. If you are serious about painting you should be serious about the quality of your artwork photos. A painting will be viewed by few but a photo and reproduction can be viewed by thousands.
