Taking photos again...


Haven't had time to paint lately. The quality of the pictures I have taken of my paintings, especially my large ones are not good enough. My old camera took "OK" pictures of my 8" x 8" and 12" x 12" paintings, but when it came to the large ones it really sucked.
I have now bought a new camera, and I have spent time learning the basics, and have also taken new pictures.
I must say that even though not all pictures are perfect, they still are much better and do the paintings more justice. The focus is over the whole painting not only in the middle, and they show more details and more accurate colors. I also got rid of those damn reflections.

I am replacing all picture of my large paintings.

  1. Big difference! Did getting a new camera get ride of the reflections or did you do something different when taking the photo? Love your work Roger.

  4. I am glad that you agree. =)

    Varnish a painting reduce reflection on "Golden's fluid acrylics", but I think I can thank my new camera for most of the emprovements.

  8. Big difference--I've had the same problem w/large paintings. One side usually looks washed out. Time for a new camera?
