One of the greatest challenges facing craftsmen is taking quality photos of their work. In September 2010 I wrote an article for issue #87 of The Engraver, the quarterly magazine of The Firearms Engravers Guild of America. They have graciously allowed me to share the article with you. Photographing your work doesn't have to be confusing and frustrating, and this guide will point you in the right direction and give you a solid foundation on the basics. You've spent a great deal of time and effort perfecting your craft, and in today's digital world, quality photos can make you or break you.
