THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE By William Butler YeatsI will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, 
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; 
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, 
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

How to Photograph Artwork, Paintings, and Sculptures

There are numerous reasons that a work of art's owner might require a photograph of the painting, drawing or object in question. Aside from having the ability to email one's entire address book a digital image of a cool new (expensive) etching, a visual record may also be required for homeowner insurance purposes.

Perhaps you've recently inherited a painting or seized upon a potential "find" at a flea market, now need help in identifying the thing and want to send a picture of it to an appraiser or some other interested party. Conversely, you may know what you've got, wish to sell it and need some attractive shots to generate maximum buyer interest.

In any of these cases, everyone involved is going to be happiest looking at the best images you can shoot. Assuming you do not own a high-end SLR or DSLR camera, or professional lighting equipment, release cables and tripods, there remain at least four steps anyone can take to ensure reasonably good pictures of art.
