Hey Rob I really like all your paintings but especially your 'Transit in Moon'. It's great to see the success you are achieving and well deserved in my opinion. I can't help but notice that not only do you paint well and have cool ideas but your photography of your work is excellent to. Are you able to give some tips on how you do your photography?
This was my entry for the Portrait Society of America's 6x9 mystery sale which took place at the annual convention last weekend. Artist's works are displayed unsigned and unnamed so bidders can purchase paintings based on what they like, rather than on name recognition. Artists names are revealed after purchase and of course, some buy in hopes of snagging a high priced name at a low cost, but for others it's wonderful way to become acquainted with new artists. Now that the sale is over I can reveal my entry.

Thanks Marian Rowling! For photography, my most important development was using polarizing filters on my lights and on my camera lens to remove glare. Some claim these will deaden glazes, but I glaze very rarely so that's not a problem for me and I've found polarizers only enliven my color as they cut back glare. I use a Canon Rebel T2i with a fixed 50mm lens on a tripod, white balanced, and shooting in RAW format. Open the files in Photoshop to convert to TIF.
