So after pestering all the camera savvy people about what I needed to do, to improve the photographs of my paintings, I finally went to Calumet on Bryant Street and met Christy. She is knowledgeable, patient and has a good sense of humor. I bit the bullet and got the SLR, the tripod, the polarized lens (for glare), the cable trigger thing, and a case for the whole shebang. Even so well equipped and advised, I'm finding that, I can't get around it, it is a huge new medium that I am going to have to learn.
|I started this 30"x30" painting weeks ago. It was pretty straight forward as a collage, but it is becoming a puzzle and is taking me into uncharted waters. (I used one of the old cameras here)|
