Hi Jeff--

This is Michael Czeiszperger, an old friend of your mother's. She was just in town for a wedding and pointed me at your blog. I love your artwork and hopefully will be able to acquire something.

If I may be so bold as to offer advice on photographing your paintings, I have a little experience in that area:

(That's not all, I've been doing reproduction work for other painters in the area.)

To show off your work at its best without professional gear I recommend lighting the paintings with two lights, each at 45 degrees to each other, preferably through white sheets. You don't need anything expensive, cheap utility lights will do, but it helps to purchase daylight color bulbs.

The idea is with good lighting even a cheap digital camera will do a pretty good job. You could get by with one light as long as it was strong enough, but it tends to light one side of the painting more than the other if the painting is bigger than 2 feet wide.
