Unhappy I need help

I left this message in the critic forum but so far got only one response and will try it tommorow. I always have problem with the glare from the flash of the camera but this time it completely ruins the painting. Tomatoes and the herb grinder look like they are covered in the white dust or fungus, the background is too dark on the left but too light behind the grinder and etc.Is part of the problem pigments used or it is the lighting and the flash?



Thank You

Why don't you try to take the photo outdoors where there is a natural light source? That way the sudden flash doesn't cause the problem. It might be something to try. I have tried to take photo's in the house with flash, bright lights, etc and they don't seem to turn out well but the ones outdoors are much better.

Here is another demo.
This one is by Rick Lee and he demonstrates how to photograph a painting UNDER GLASS! without getting a glare.
It is fantastic.

Hi,

I've always been very successful taking pictures outside as well. I usually take two shots, moving a few inches for each - just to make sure I don't catch a glare. Invariably when I try to take pictures indoors with a flash I get the same results that you did.

Thanks for recommending the photography sites, I will check them out, too.

If it is possible to turn the flash off which is what I do and take the pic outside, You'll be ok.
