Tips for Photographing Your Artwork
You already know how frustrating it is when you are so excited to upload a finished painting on your artist blog but you can not get a decent photograph.
Sometimes it can feel impossible to take a photograph that accurately represents your art. The excitement of finishing a new project soon turns to frustration.
Some artists become so aggravated that they will upload the best image they have even if it doesn’t accurately represent the original artwork.
Doing this will only harm your business. Keep in mind that a customer is deciding if they will purchase your art based off of the image they are viewing. If the image is blurry or too dark they will move on without making a purchase. Even worse, if a person buys from you and the art looks nothing like the image you provided, you will end up with a frustrated customer sharing their thoughts on social media.
Take the time to learn how to become an expert in photographing your artwork. Your reputation and art business depends on it.
