Titania and Puck

I've listed this painting and another on eBay. They're the last in a series I was working on. The other is called Psycho babydoll (another fairy and skull which lists starting at $9.99) under my gothiquefairy Identity. This one kind of came out a fave but, while the camera gets the colors muuuch closer than the scanner it is blurry. Does anyone know what causes that? I have a fairly new Kodak C813. Thank you! Thank you for looking!! =)

I love the depth of the colors. Making sure the camera is on a tripod also helps, parallel to the artwork. If you must use a flash (if, say, the only time you have to work is late at night), you can diffuse the flash -- I'm cheap, so I use either tissue paper or white fabric over my pop-up built-in flash.

Nice work! I agree, it's so tough photographing artwork! I find it helps to use a delayed shutter release (most cameras have them, you can set it for usually 10 or 30 seconds, and you don't get the sudden motion blur from pressing the shutter button.) Also, if you're using an automatic setting, it's best to do it without flash during daytime. Bright, soft, natural light will trigger a faster shutter speed (so it's less blurry) while reducing harsh glares. And of course, a tripod is best, if you can get one. Hope this is helpful!

Artist Reply: Thank you! I'm copying and pasting it. I could definitely see the shutter release problem since I definitely notice it's difficult to press the button without shake. All great info, thanks!!

Beautiful work Bailey! I end up taking so many photos before I get the one I want. Steady hands is mostly important....and I use the close up option on my camera. Also try different settings on your camera. Portrait works the best for me. And lastly flash will add glare in your artwork so try to take it with a good natural light without flash. Hope this helps a little.

Artist Reply: Thank you Renata! Yep, that's how it felt, picture after picture and I'm going to copy and paste what you're saying. Several things I can try next time. You rock =)

Ah, M-Bailey - those draped fabrics clinging as with morning's heavy dew, the bright Robin carrying my heart to the the dawn the celtic forest filled with me own true friends... too much? I like it - love 'er and all 'er lush - yet damp - surroundings - bewdy ~:0) (btw - regarding the camera being blurry - you need to use a tripod, otherwise the phenomenon known as camera shake rears its ugly head in your fotos - if u-r using a tripod, never mind ~:0)

Artist Reply: Nope, I haven't been using a tripod, thanks for the heads up! Also, thanks for the wonderful review. I wish that I could quote them they are so cool. Thank you Chas and Renata!! <3
