HELP US OUT

You can help us out by documenting the work that you own. We want high-res 600 dpi scans or photographs of any work that you have. Give us titles, year, and size. Let us know if you are willing to loan for exhibition, and send your current phone number and mailing address.

Here are some tips for photographing your work...
-send us anything regardless of the quality
-find an empty or neutral wall to use as a background
-turn off lamps and interior lights, and look for a spot with lots of natural lights but do not photograph in direct sunlight
-if outdoors, photograph work in a shaded area to avoid direct light
-overcast days are great for photographing indoors or outdoors
-try to keep the edges of the painting parallel with the edges of frame so that the you are capturing the image as flat as possible
-if your piece is framed and can't be unframed, you may notice glare on glass...in this case, take pictures from a few different angles to avoid glare and your own reflection, and send us multiple shots
-scan works on paper that are small
-email or text images but please but beware that facebook destroys image quality

Celie can photograph your work if you are in South Carolina. Be wearing a mask, and ready to bring the art outdoors to photograph. She can also scan your works on paper if they are under 14" x 17" and return them to you.
