How you photograph the artwork in your portfolio can make or break an artwork
One of my artist colleagues once said to me “As artists, we live and die by our photographs.”
Today, the vast majority of the time, people will see our artwork on a screen before they see it in person, if they ever do! The photograph of your artwork may literally be the only representation of your artwork anyone ever gets to see.
I have seen a lot of artworks, particularly 3D artworks that are so poorly photographed and presented, that they look like an entirely different art piece It’s easy especially with 3D artwork for the artwork to be completely misunderstood because the photograph does not accurately show all of the dimensions of the artwork.
It’s critical that the photograph is an accurate representation of the artwork. You’ve worked so hard to produce the artwork, you don’t want that artwork to be misrepresented in your documentation!
