Documenting Your Work
Here is one that was sold in a gallery early last year. I simply didn’t have time to scan it at the time, because I was getting ready for a show and had to get it out the door. This was the best I could do at resurrecting the image from an installation shot taken in the gallery. I’m glad I have this much, because I am always referring to previous work for clues to where I’ve been and where I want to go.
Bottom line: Don’t do what I did. I try very hard to properly photograph every single piece that goes out of my studio. I am getting better at it.
The “how” of photographing your work can be simple or it can be complex — expensive or inexpensive. Here is a good link for photographing your art. It’s close to the way I do mine. Of course, if it’s small enough you can just scan it.
What are you working on today? Whatever it is, make it fun.
