Tips on how to photograph your work for assessment

In this short video I talk to OCA tutor and historical artefact photographer Derek Trillo. We discuss ways of making the most of the camera you have and how it is possible to take good quality photographs during lockdown. 

Derek talks about the basic things that you need to take a good image as well as making the best use of the light sources you have. He shares his thoughts about using a camera phone to take stills and video content. We also discuss how to capture the scale and texture of your work whether it is 2-D or 3-D. 

If you have any further questions please leave them in comments below.
