Photographing art

So I’ve been working with a web designer, Noelle Mena, on a new website. I accidentally crashed my old one back in November. Initially, I was totally panicked but realized it was out of my control and I wasn’t super crazy about it anyway. So had to let it go and gain control, right? I started looking at websites that I liked and that’s how I found Noelle.

Anyway, through the course of working together, she mentioned to me about taking photographs of my art in a better way to really showcase the art. I use to try and do that, but then I don’t know,  maybe kinda got lazy about it? You know how easy it is to take a quick pic with your cellphone – I guess the convenience was there. And plus some of my things are really hard to take photos of because they are tall.

So after her gentle suggestion, I started researching backdrops and found this one on Amazon. Not a bad price either. It was easy to set up. I added my own black fabric over the black piece that came with the setup. It’s fine, but I love the texture of the black fabric I have and it gives my pictures,  it’s own unique look. The other cool thing about it is that I can raise it to the height I need for a particular piece.

So here is a picture I took of my piece, “Sweet Pea”. Really stands out!

I bought this mini chair at the flea market recently and it works perfectly to sit or stand my dolls on.

And then see this tall piece compared to Sweet Pea? I would just raise the backdrop up some so that you cannot see the wall behind the art. Very convenient.

    Wow, what a difference! Photography is really hard for me, too. I need to work a lot harder at it! It looks like you’ve nailed it!
