I’ve been trying to photograph some of my drawings for an upcoming application, but I’m having a hell of a time. The lighting is uneven, the line work disappears, the images look dull. I’m guessing that scanning would be best, although, I’d have to do each in parts and then stitch them together.
What’s hardest are the installation shots. I have a wall of about 20 drawings that I’d like to photograph as a whole. Any helpful hints for this do-it-yourselfer?
Oh, and these are some of the drawings I’ve been making. Without getting into my artist statement in progress, they’re text as content and form, word as figuration and narrative, letters as sound and shape.
