In my presentation at the April meeting, I lightly touched on photographing your artwork, for historical reasons and for entering competitions. I did not go into detail but instead gave a link for an excellent YouTube video covering the how-to's. (The link is in the document at the bottom of our Member's Only page.)
An article written by Brian Sherwin for Fine Art Views newsletter emphasizes the importance of correct lighting. Comments by readers are always interesting, and one of the comments includes a link to photographing shiny paintings. Might be helpful.
FAV newsletter is emailed daily, always interesting, and you don't have to have a FASO website to subscribe. There's a subscribe link in the left column of the newsletter.
