How to photograph your artwork- YouTube videos

I have begun a series of videos describing the process of photographing your work for accurate reproduction.  Though there is a lot of technical knowledge, I am breaking the videos down into different subjects.  It makes for a shorter video and you can find what you are looking for easier with multiple videos as opposed to a long one.

Hope you enjoy and I would appreciate any feedback.

Unfortunately, I had to ask my 9 year old how to do most of it. Which was a little embarrassing I admit.

If you have ever considered painting watercolor on YUPO, this is how I do it:

Watercolor Workshop- September 18th. Mouth atomizing watercolor paintings

Mouth atomized watercolor workshop by Ryan Fox

Mouth Atomizing Watercolor Workshop with Ryan Fox WSNC PWS
September, 18th 1-8pm

The mouth atomizer is a device that is used to spray watercolor paint, ink, or other liquids evenly over a surface.
A traditional, non-aerosol way to apply paint, the mouth atomizer functions like an airbrush powered by your breath. The atomizing technique creates an atmospheric effect that is difficult to achieve with a brush. It is also to add texture to foregrounds and buildings as well as create entire paintings in an impressionistic pointillism style.
Students will create a painting by masking and spraying colors onto watercolor paper. After an instructor discussion about value choices and color choices, students will embark on an artistic journey using a unique painting tool.
