Hi FNO Member!
We hope you are busy booking shows for the upcoming festival season. Many festivals may require you to send photos of your work during the registration process, read part 2 of artist Lori McNee's great guide to taking professional quality photos of your work.
Are you listed in the Festival Biz Directory? Learn more below. Been to a good show lately? Had a less than great experience? Be sure to log in and rate the event in the FNO database!
How to Photograph Your Artwork the Easy Way!
by Lori McNee
Now you have a better understanding of the camera, equipment and lighting from Part 1 - so what's next?
It is time to experiment with taking your own photographs. The steps below will help you achieve great results. The quality has been good enough for gallery opening invitations, magazine articles, advertisements, museum catalogs and my website and blog. Now the only time I hire a "pro" is when I need a high resolution reproductions such as giclee, posters or books.
