    So my dad just bought a D70s, and I'm getting interested in photography too...

    I still totally suck though. :)

    Anyways, since my dad's hobby is painting I decided to post some of his art. Here are the first pics, btw anyone got some tips to shoot paintings behind glass?

    Nice art.

    Why do people insist on posting multiple shots of the same thing when some of the shots are horrible?

    Why not just show the good ones?

    first tip: do not use flash facing a glass covered painting. You get that fat glare of the flash on the glass. If you can, bounce light from the flash off the ceiling and towards your paintings (but Im guessing you just have the built in flash which you cannot tilt). Use lamps or lights from the room the paintings are in.

    FUCK

    stop commenting on the picture quality and talk about the art. Pictures are horrible, art is fairly interesting.

    I love the art!
    The photography will happen or not, tis the art that matters!

    On flash. If at all possible don't use it. Natural is the way to go. Move the art close to a window or bring a light to it, but watch out for glare on the glass.

    Thanks for posting your Dad's work. It's awesome.

    I like your dads work. Reminds me of some stuff I use to see back in the 60's and 70's.

    Tips for taking pics of art:

    1. Get a polarising filter for your camera. Rotate it until most or all of the glare dissapears.

    2. Always use a tripod. Use a cable release or self timer so you don't bump or shake the camera when taking the pic.

    3. Never use direct flash. Diffused window light is good but two even light sources placed at 45 degree angles to the painting is even better.

    4. Get a large black piece of felt or other thin dark blanket to set up behind the camera to block un-necessary reflections in the glass that the polarising filter doesn't block.

    If you want to get into it, you'll probably want to invest in some hardware, such as a tripod and external flash that can swivel. It was previously mentioned that you'll want to bounce the flash indirectly to avoid the glare. With the tripod, you can use the lighting from the room and go with a longer shutter speed.

    What about using a tripod with a longer exposure without the use of a flash.
