As a photographer of works of art the indepth technical detail in this book is a necessity for me. Of 4 books I own on this topic, this is the most comprehensive. It has become my 'bible'. I am recommending it to our local Art Guild members who are serious about the need for accurate color slides of their works.

5.0 out of 5 stars how to photograph works of art 6 July 2010
By wendy
Format:Paperback
i bought this book for my husband who documents my art work. no easy task as i paint on large scale canvases and often there are glossy surfaces as well as matt etc.. since the book he has been getting on better and there has been far less need to re document anything! something that was very necessary before.

so from an on lookers point of view for anyone needing a few good pointers to make their life easier when it comes to photographing art work i would say this is money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to get started 7 Feb 2001
By Keith Nichols - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you want to photograph any sort of artwork, this volume will get you going. All aspects of the task are considered, and the text is lucid, with plentiful illustrations. Various sorts of film, lighting, camera gear, filtration, testing, and lighting technique are covered. These things are not just catalogued, but evaluated by the author based on his years of experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good guide for the pros, not DIY artists 15 Jun 2004
By Parker Nicholls - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Extremely thorough, professional guide for the professional photographer. This book is not geared for the artist who desires to do their own photodocumentation or gallery submission photography. There is no doubt that this author is an authority in his field.
