PHOTOGRAPHIC DAYS
My personal studio is now available for artists to get their work photographed inexpensively.
Next session
Tue 26th Sep 2017
sculptures by Jas Davidson - photography by Myk - MORE at the bottom of this page

WHAT YOU BRING

your art work,

a suitable USB memory stick on which I can write the images, allow 100Mb per piece

cash to settle on the day - or pay by PayPal/creditcard/debit card when the pictures are done

WHAT YOU GET

for each piece of work:

      a high resolution cropped-to-shape image - suitable for printing up to 40" long - larger available at extra cost

      a medium sized image at good quality for most websites

      and an e-mail sized image

ISSUES

I am using a simple 2 light setup to take these pictures. If you bring a picture under glass, it will usually be OK.

If the work has a deep frame we may get shadows at each end of the image, at these prices that is what you get ! - the shadows can be cropped off if you wish.



This is an extreme case with a very deep frame ...

I can set up to do a museum grade image with the work out of its frame and time to balance the colours finely - but it costs more !
