In case you missed it! How to Photograph Your Art Using Your Smartphone

At our member meeting last Wednesday, Jill Rumley (Board Member & our newsletter & website & social media editor) demonstrated how to photograph your artwork using your smartphone!  She demonstrated the use of a tripod, smartphone adaptor (to connect to the tripod) lighting and editing techniques using a free app called SnapSeed.

Here is the before and after photos showing how she set the artwork on a chair, and then the finished photograph edited right on her phone! (Thanks to Catharina Van Haaren for the use of her beautiful painting!)

Click here to download some tips on how to do this in your own home!
