I don’t know about the rest of you,

but I’ve always had a tough time of getting a good picture of some of my work.

Woodcarving Illustrated has this pdf on how it's done.

This has helped me, so I thought I’d pass it on to you Lumberjocks.

You’re welcome grumpy!

I’ve sent this to friends who had trouble getting a good image of something I had made for them.

Thanks Dick, you have given a very important link for us to improve our photography while sending projects.
I don’t know how much to praise you for this. Hope you and others will share many such informative sites with all LJs.

You’re all Welcome!

I’m sure this will help everyone, I still go back & review it.

Sometimes it takes awhile for things to soak in.

There’s a lot of good info in the article but for most people it will probably be hard to grasp what they are trying to say. We’re lucky to have digital cameras now so that we can shoot something, push a button and then see what we shot. The main things to remember is to always set your camera to the “finest” setting. This will give you the highest resolution. Take the photo from different angles and with different lighting. Review the photo and if it’s not what you want, try again. No film, prints and time wasted like the “old days”. I do agree that there are some good tips in the article.

I learned that especially for a relief carving, is to get the proper side lighting,

because shadows are what make a relief carving.

This article tells you how.
