The first challenge for the blog was given to me by my artist friend Kylie (Kylie’s wonderful work can be found in the ‘Links’ section), she expressed that she was having difficulty taking photos of her artwork and wondered if I could give any advice. I accepted and went about trying to find the best way for her to do this. The guidelines of the challenge were I would only use my Panasonic DMC ‘point and shoot’ and no other photographic equipment. Kylie is using a Canon IXUS so using my 600D would be pointless. I only broke away from these guidelines in the use of a tripod due to the fact they are available so cheaply.
So after a few hours trying different things out, I came up with three basic setups.
Setup One: Indoor, light assisted.
