My son Jonathan is 10 years old. He is very good at doing origamis. So this painting is done by a father and son team.

Beautiful. nice treatment of the light.

Looks like lately you've been having some reflection issues with the photographs. Are you photographing them differently or is the finish more glossy?

I am painting thicker than before and run into this reflecion issue. Any suggestions?

I just took a workshop with Carol Marine. She suggests taking your work outside, holding it at arms length while in full shade. Once you find a place where you get no glare, photograph your work. Don't lay it on the ground where the sky might be reflected.I've been having good results with that. Also, once you find a good spot, you can usually use it every day.

There is a spot on my back porch that gets really good light but is in the shade - I photograph all my work there.

Photograph it outside on a cloudy day or build a light box out of cardboard and thin paper. Cut a couple windows in the cardboard box (large enough for your paintings), cover with thin paper (maybe tissue paper), and place light(s) outside the thin paper windows. The thin paper will diffuse the light and spread it throughout the box, allowing you to place your painting at the back and photograph it from the front with a camera set up on a tripod without any glare.
