I finally had my artwork photographed by a professional. In fact by a professional fine art photographer. It's been in the back of a my mind for a long time but the pressing need to be able to supply good quality prints of my work forced my hand. My camera and my skills just weren't cutting it.
David Ettinger specializes in photography of fine art, apparently a dying breed of photographer. But when you are this good at something? It's not just about the quality of the photographs though, it's also the manner in which David and I arranged the session, David came to my house, we found a suitable wall and the 2 hours it took were filled with conversation, story swapping and the exchange of the odd contact for other services. Now just look at the results, great colour, no distortion, there is something really great about being able to zoom into the image and see the grain of the canvas.

This leads to the next two stages in this big push:
1 - Reveal the latest drawing
2 - Update the Velopaint website
3 - Get it all online and have the prints available for order.
And I'll get started on that as soon as my daughter is over the chicken pox and we have all moved house. .
