One caveat. Lisa does not say what type of paintings she is photographing (watercolors, oils, etc.) so I cannot fault Jerry for not mentioning this caveat. "Good 45ð lighting" is sound advice except if the painting has texture which you wish to pick up and include in the photograph. If it is an oil or some other painting which has texture such as brush strokes or impaste features, these will be lost in flat lighting and only brought out by the existence of shadows cast by a raking side lighting , typically at an angle of less than 45* from one direction. Often, depending on the size of the original, you can still get even lighting without fall off with this method. On larger works, you might get some fall off of lighting on the far side. If it is not significant, it will not have too much impact; if it is you may have to adjust the angles, the hight, the distance, or some other variable. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Jerry Olson Sent: Thursday, February 17, 2000 10:46 AM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Printing from Digital Camera Get close to the painting, use good 45ð lighting, and if your work has any glare and you want to eliminate it , use polarizing filters on the lights and on the camera. Don't use a wide angle lens when shooting it, or distortion will result. Most digital camera lenses probably aren't sharp enough to do a good job if you want large prints. If you are using a pro model, no problem. Lisa Grothman wrote: > Hi everyone, > > I'm going to have my artwork photographed with a digital camera to print on an > Epson 3000.
