Chris Warner shows you step by step how to photograph your art work, using both professional and economy light setups.
The professional set up is using two lights of equal bulb wattage and the economy setup uses two light sources of different bulb wattage.
The following is the tip for economy setup.He suggests that when using two light sources that are unequal in bulb wattage, the tip is to use a pencil which will reflect two different tonal value shadows on the wall.
To do this, a pencil is placed in the vertical position in the middle of your picture on the wall. The pencil reflects two cast shadows of different tonal values.
By moving one of the light sources away from the picture on the wall, you are able to adjust the shadows, until they are equal in tonal value.
