How to get clean images with camera?
« on: September 25, 2013, 04:09:08 PM »
I don't have a scanner, only a camera, so i was wondering if anyone had tips or tutorials on how to get a clean image from photographing your drawings...

1. mount camera on tripod
2. tape paper to wall (clean sheet)
3. set up camera, get the clean sheet of paper in good focus, draw some lines if you have to.
5. set up lighting, get your white balance right
6. tape paper with artwork over the clean sheet
7. take picture
8. adjust contrast and curve in photoshop to pop out the white
9. don't move tripod or camera

Since you don't have a scanner, Lego, can I assume you're looking to photograph your artwork for uploading?
