I know that I have issues with photographing my needlework. Color, focus, clarity --- all can suffer. And if there is any shine or sparkle, that is a real disaster. Other have reported similar issues when scanning their needlework, which is made even more difficult with projects with some dimension. And then there are the larger pieces, like garments, clothing, household decor items, etc., that don't adapt to scanning at all...
This can be especially problematical if you are submitting a piece for a show and a digital photo (not photoshopped) is asked for with the entry form.
I'm starting this thread for accumulating tips on getting better scans or photos... Please feel free to add any tips you have found that help you take pictures or scan your work.
