Taking pictures of art, or an artist requires skill to get the best from it. First of all, let’s make sure you have one thing clear before you take any picture of art, or even an artist. This is a group of people that really specialize in making money with their skill or art, so, copyright infringement is going to be a big thing you have to look out for. Just as a professional photographer would like to earn money from their work, the artist does not want you to take a photo and then, you, make money from it. It is important that you check with the artist before you even take a picture. Let’s take a look at several pictures, classified as either artistic, or art.
The photo above is interesting because it is important in this situation that you include a person for reference to the size. Look at this again, and see that without the person, you might have thought that this was some new dream home for Barbie. New designs in small homes are becoming a big, big thing, and artists are getting creative in making this look right.
When taking photos of art, beware of copyrights. And don’t try to sneak a photo either, because some day, you will get caught. Enjoy the art, but, be aware of what type of art you can take pictures of. The old art that is hundreds of years old, you are probably going to be fine taking pictures of that, but, anything that looks current, do not take pictures. If there is any photo, art piece that has a signature on it, do not take a picture.
I have been a photographer for many years. Worked in retail selling cameras and accessories for over 20 years. Taught many photo classes, and have even been a judge in several county fairs. Now, I want to share photo instructions and entertainment with all other photographers around the world.
