Overview

A classic reference enters the digital age! The long anticipated update of Steve Meltzer’s Photographing Your Craftwork is here—and finally artists have a guide that helps them produce high quality images of their work. Cutting through the jargon and hype around digital photography, Meltzer explains in plain language how digital cameras operate, and explores specific techniques for lighting and photographing jewelry, pottery, glass, installed art, stamps, coins, dolls, and other collectibles. Because a great portfolio and smart use of the internet are so important for professional success, there’s also advice on using such photo editing programs as Adobe™ Photoshop® and CorelPHOTO-PAINT Pro® to turn images into great photographic prints, exciting websites, eye-catching marketing materials, and submissions for exhibition jurying.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Much has changed since Meltzer first began writing about photographing collectibles. Digital photography has made taking good-quality photos of objects much easier, and with eBay and other online auctions the marketing of arts, crafts, and collectibles has become a billion-dollar business. In this update of his classic Photographing Your Craftwork, Meltzer explains in plain language how digital cameras operate and explores specific techniques for lighting and photographing jewelry, pottery, glass, installed art, stamps, coins, dolls, and other collectibles. His advice on creating a great artist's or crafter's portfolio and the smart use of the Internet is invaluable for professionals or for those hoping to become professional. Recommended.

    I love this book! I can't afford a new camera or expensive lig

    I love this book! I can't afford a new camera or expensive lighting, but that isnt the focus of the book. It gets into lighting, background and lot of other littler things that can make or break a photo.
    It even had tips for photos that will be used for a juried art fair vs an online shop. I found lots of useful tips on light positioning, background colors, etc for different types of items that I might be dealing with. It wasnt too technical and had lots of useful information.
