These two photos show what a difference lighting can make when taking pictures of drawings/paintings. The image above was taken with a Canon Rebel DLSR (a gift from my dad – thank you dad!) and the one below was taken with my MacBook. The bottom picture appears warmer making the paper appear slightly yellow and the pastel slightly redder. The upper picture appears cooler by comparison though the lighting is actually just neutral.

    • Hm…for a camera I use a canon rebel DLSR. For lighting it depends on time of day. I usually move the subject around the apartment and try to find something neutral. There’s a mix of warm/cool lights (IKEA – nothing fancy) and if there’s daylight I might use natural lighting. I try to go with the photo that best matches reality, but sometimes the color is still off (depending on the time of day)
