Drowning in Hot Lights and Black Velvet

I have a new eBook available on "How to Photograph Your Artwork." I have put it on Scribd so that you can access and download it. I believe that everything is free and here's a link that I hope will work link to article.

This weekend, I was asked to give a talk on how to photograph artwork. Something that you may (or may not!) know about me is that I used to do a lot of copy work. In the past, I've done copy work for the Austin Visual Arts Association and for several local and prominent artists. Seriously. Like I was drowning in hot lights and black velvet. It's just one of those things, one of the many "checkers" in my checkered past that I sometimes opt to forget but never really goes away.

So, picture this. This weekend, I'm all setup, all ready to start in with my talk. I hadn't prepared anything. I almost forgot what I was going to say. I've done so much copy work you see, I almost don't know how to tell anybody else how to do it either. I was so afraid I would leave out something obvious too. But, in the end, I think it went ok. I think I remembered to touch upon everything, even if just a little bit. It's hard to do these things from memory...next time...maybe cliff notes or something?

I had written the eBook figuring that I could use it for people who could not make the talk and also for people who wanted more information. I figured I would share it with you here too just, you know, just in case.

So now you know. Happy photographing!

Until next time...
