Photographing Artwork

For the past few days I’ve been stressing about how my camera no longer takes the same quality of photo in regards to clarity and color distortion. After doing a short bit of research and not understanding what I was reading about, a simple fix occurred to me – wipe the lens clean. Duh! I wiped it clean and it made a world of difference! Look at these two comparisons – dirty lens vs clean lens:

Dirty Lens:

red barn painting, red barn art, dave white painting, dave white artist, barn painting
Red Barn Painting

Clean Lens:

red barn painting, one loudoun, artist dave white
Red Barn Painting

Sometimes the solution is more simple than we think. I love simple fixes!

The original of this painting, as well as open-edition prints, are available here.
