    Photographing Paintings for 1:1 Reproduction

    Sorry if this has been handled elsewhere, but I tried searching and couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Does anyone have any experience with having their paintings photographed for prints or posters? I have a couple of large-ish paintings and a local photo lab place simply shot the paintings on a photo stand and upsampled them in Photoshop. This won't work for a good 1:1 reproduction.

    Any ideas?

    Ive had some prints done of some of my paintings so i can tell you what ive seen. The guy i go to has a funky looking camera the shots it takes are like 800ish mb's. The images turn out quite nice for 1 to 1 prints and blow ups are also good. It depends on the quality of the camera that is used to take these photos. My guys a professional running his own printing business. Maybe you just need to find someone who focuses in this kind of stuff and has the right equipment.
