Hey guys. So I have been giving this a lot of thought lately. 

I have always scanned my pieces, just because I like that you see the whole thing straight on and can see all the detail. Now I mess around with color correcting, and fixing it up in GIMP, to make up for the effect that scanning naturally has (sort of bleaching or making the piece less crisp in color). However, after seeing the negative results on my last piece here. I am wondering if I should switch to taking photos of my work instead, as suggested by :iconnighte-studios:.

Why am I so frustated with the mermaid piece and the results of the scan? Even with trying to make the purple shiny Gelly Roll pop by fidgeting with it in GIMP...it still didn't give the desired result. In the scan it just looks super dark in the spots where the Gelly Roll is. Which makes me frustrated. I guess you could say perhaps I shouldn't use the Gelly Rolls in the way that I did if I want to scan...but see I had a vision for the piece and I would like to start incorporating Gelly Roll pens into my artwork more. So that means changing how I post things. I have also been having more and more problems with my scanner, and I am starting to see that it is just going down hill in terms of scan quality (it seems to be capturing the colors more poorly lately). 

So! Does anyone have any thoughts or advice for photographing traditional media pieces?
