I'm new to this group and site... will post some images soon. I've been a professional photographer for 30 years now... mostly commercial and advertising by trade, but enjoy shooting nature & landscapes for myself.
That's a bit tricky.
There are three suggestions I can make, though it's difficult without seeing first hand what you have available.
i) Do the best you can in-camera and then compensate with software.
ii) Bring in more light. The most basic set up for copy board lighting is to have two lights aimed at 45º to the canvas. You can do it with relatively inexpensive lights along these lines, or you could jury rig a similar set up for less money with items from the hardware store. Lights have a bit of a hot spot in the centre (unless they are well diffused). That hot spot need to be aimed just past the centre of the image. If the lights are too harsh, move them back or diffuse them.
iii) If the window is unobstructed, reasonably positioned, and gets enough light for you to get a reasonable exposure, you could try angling the work you want to reproduce roughly 45º to the window, and use a large piece of white card stock on the other side of the image to bounce some light back onto it.
Regardless of the option you use, setting your white balance correctly before you shoot is an important first step.
There are also services that do reproductions. Sometimes there's people doing it real cheap, but still do an okay job (just trying to scrape a little extra cash on the side, I guess).
The only other thing I can think of off the top of my head is a scanner, but if your works are larger than a typical scanner bed, that might not be economical.
One problem I have is taking photos of my work....I am just not that great with a camera...any tips?
I've used PaintShop Photo Pro once or twice in the past, but the photo industry is Mac/ Adobe dominated right now, and I have neither the means nor the motivation to swim against that current.
I do suggest PaintShop or Gimp on occasion to those needing an editor, yet unable or unwilling to shell out the cost of a Photoshop license, but I feel a little bad making the suggestion when I can only provide minimal input on those applications.
This is some of my sm'ART...smoke + Art = sm'ART
The first piece from the previous post is called "Aquarium I",
The piece on the bottom is called "Just Blocks Away"
I have over 700 pieces- mainly black and white- maybe 30 in color
The masks I bought blank in Venice, Italy. I bought 65 all together. Most of the masks don't really have tittles yet-many different shapes. I have many more on my Facebook site
