Taking passable photos of your work.

It’s the last step, after procrastination, the impossible concept you stumble on and the tireless execution (and scowling at blogs which have done it better before you), it’s the photo you take for your folio.

Anyone who studies with me will have heard our lecturer drill us on the importance on good design photography. It’s absolutely true, even a plain piece of work can look boss well lit against seamless paper. I’ve used photography a few times (90’s still life, Richard Pratt) and it’s not easy to get right. Jessica Walsh has written up a very helpful, concise guide that any grad should check out. Have a look at her still life’s afterwards too. Photography for Designers.
