    I am currently looking into making prints of my work. I however, lack the amazing photo taking abilities that I am sure you have. This results in poor representations of my work. Anyway, I am able to get my hands on a basic 10.2MP sony camera and need to take photos of my paintings.

    What I am asking is if I post a pic, can you guys edit it and make it look as good as possible so I can turn it into a print. I am a starving artist at the moment and cannot afford to pay you, but I can offer you one of my limited prints of which you edit for payment. Please let me know if you can help. :x::noes:

    In case there is more then one that is interested, I guess we can start a small list so different people can get a print.

    sign me up, make sure you have it evenly lit before taking the picture. What is your setup for digitizing them? I want a print of your stuff, its fucking awesome

    Yes evenly lit is the key. Light them up at least bright enough that the camera don't have to use a slow shutter and/or high ISO number also. That will help with the overall quality of the pic. The best possible situation would be outside in the shadow of a building or a tree if you got leaves where you live (none in Ohio right now :noes:)

    should I use the flash?
    and what ISO number should I use... the camera is a Sony N2. I don't know what it is capable of. I bought it like a thousand years ago and sold it to my cousin who is now letting me use it

    Try not to use the flash. It can put a hot spot on the image (especially if any are behind glass.) Try to use the lowest ISO you can. Lower ISO = lower noise in the image.
