Question to Painters who post

Recommended Posts

Usually my phone (fairly average Samsung A3) - or my old 400D if I've time.

Lighting is *Very* important - cameras on phones are generally quite poor under low light conditions. This doesn't mean dark by the way, anything less than outdoor sunlight can cause images to get grainy. As mentioned above, minimum focus can be a problem, but you can usually get quite close with a phone.

iPhone.  Have extra lighting and a blank background (I use regular white paper) and for close-ups you can zoom in with your fingers for a macro function.  Take multiple of one  angle and discard the pictures you don't like.

The few pictures I've posted have been with my 70D and a 50mm lens.  Are you using a camera or a phone?  If a camera, can you change your autofocus point?  Also if you're using a camera what's the minimum distance then lens you're using will focus at?

Can't really recommend digital zoom, it is effectively just a crop, you don't actually get 'more' in the picture.  Digital zoom is a gimmick/trap.
