I could really use helpful suggestions on how to fix this piece up, cos I feel like everytime I try to embellish it with pastels furthur, it risks fading/smearing, but fixative destroys the luminousity. Also whenever I take shots of black artwork on shiny textured paper, a horrible glare always comes up, without any flash or whatever. I use digital cameras chiefly. If anyone has Photoshop tips, that'd be great.
I know the anatomy isn't great either. I want to maybe do another, should I, or just fix this one on it's own?
I can at least try to address the glare issue. I try to set the shot up so the light is not bouncing straight at the camera. One way perhaps is to lay the work flat on the ground and take a picture of it straight down from above while the sun is relatively low to one side. Then the work is lit but the glare is bouncing away from the camera.
Of course you have to set up the step stool so it doesn't cast a shadow on the work (and so you don't cast the shadow yourself). If you are in a snowy locale then maybe outside photography is not possible. Then you would have to try something like this with a spotlight.
