Photographing Objects for Purposes of Identification
By Peter Dorrell

Overview

When it comes to identifying objects, a photograph is said to be worth a thousand words. In reality, the amount of information communicated by a photograph depends to a large extent on the clarity of the image, the way it is lit, and the viewpoint of the photographer. Part 2 of this publication is designed to assist those who photograph art, antiques, and antiquities by giving advice on choosing viewpoints, creating backgrounds, and positioning lighting to achieve the best results.
