    Step #916: Photograph Your Art

    "Conversation is food for the soul."
    Mexican Proverb

    Everyone has a different process for capturing their work. I can share what I do. I like to photograph art outside in the early to mid-morning or early evening. I place the artwork on the ground below me and I photograph from above. I also capture some shots at interesting angles to share the texture in some of my pages. In Texas there is lovely sun year-round, so I photograph outdoors in natural light. The images of artwork that you see on Daisy Yellow are photos rather than scans. I think the texture is better captured in the photos. 

    Here's more in the step-by-step art journaling series.

    I definitely think photographing art IS art! Especially the way you do it.

    *Monica, Growing up in PA, the skies were often cloudy; in TX it's usually sunny (and unbearably hot) so I really notice it.

    *Dawn, Thank you for your sweet words!

    The early morning and late evenings are my fav times to take photos, with a cool angle of light.
