The Art of Art Copy

Art copy work is an important branch of photography. It is important to pay close attention to detail and be very meticulous. We photographed the paintings of the very talented Dr. Marc Malberg. His work is based on different biblical themes with incorporated surrealism.  We photographed his paintings to look as close to they do in reality. Take a look at these marvelous works of art for yourself.  

Marc I. Malberg, MD
Helen of Troy, 1985, 72×48

When photographing art:

  • Use lighting that will portray the image as it is supposed to be shown.
  • Using color management tools like the color checker passport is imperative to reproducing the colors the artist intended.
  • Perspective should be kept direct and un-skewed.
  • As always, make your subject (in this case the art) look it’s best.

Making Headway with Headshots

To create a successful headshot can be difficult. However, with a talented model like Jack Daniels these shoots can be a lot of fun! Here are some tips to help you get a great shot:

-You are here to help make your client look their best, so make sure they do.
-Pay special attention to body position. The slightest change in shoulder height, face angle, and posture can make a world of difference.
-Choose an outfit that is flattering, yet not distracting from the true subject of the photograph.
-Take your shot in a natural looking setting. Consider color palette always.
-Make your model comfortable. Make conversation; tell jokes! Do what you have to, in order to bring out their inner supermodel!

Now its your turn! Part of the fun in being a photographer is wearing many hats, right? Be a set designer, make up artist, hair dresser, and photographer all at the same time!
