Great Help

It is always great to have an assistant who knows the needs of the artist without a word. My husband is very supportive and today (Saturday morning !) he helped me to take pictures of my recent paintings. I usually do this job by myself, but for larger painting I need an assistant to hold it.
Some will say that I should have professional setting for lighting and shooting in my studio so that I can take pictures regardless of whether.  However, I still believe that best lighting for shooting paintings is sunlight between 10 am - 12 noon. Howsoever I came to know how to set up artificial lighting, I end up with shooting outside under the sun. I feel that natural sunlight is still the best to reproduce the colors of paints and it gives the most even light to the surface of canvas. And the best of all about assistant husband and sunlight, they both are free!
