Here are some tips:
- Use the best camera you have (iPad, phone, or classroom/teacher's camera)
- The artwork should be neat, not folded or damaged
- Hang the art on a flat wall or place on an easel
- Set up art with light that is consistent and equal over the entire work of art (No shadows)
- Point your camera directly at the center of the image, With the camera's eyeline horizontal from the floor and perpendicular to the wall. Fill the camera's frame with your image, focus and do a light meter reading, and snap the shot.
- Take a few pictures of the same artwork
- If your camera allows for it (An SLR will.), bracket your images. This means taking multiple shots with slightly different exposures by adjusting the shutter speed.
- Upload your photo(s) onto the computer, then delete the images from the camera roll.
- Check your pictures and select the most accurate one.
- Use a photo editing application to crop and edit your work.
