Mobile Phones and Tablets
These days it's easier to photograph all those special and precious moments in everyday life and we are more than happy to share these lovely photos with family and friends.
The reason is the increasingly popular mobile phones and tablets which most of us have accessible and bring along everywhere we go.
Obviously most of the mobile phones and tablets have a camera which we use in a hurry before the so rare moment forever disappears. However, most mobile devices do not produce photos good enough to use as reference for a portrait.
There are some exceptions depending on lighting conditions and how close you are to the subject you are photographing, however from an artists perspective it’s easy to see a big clarity difference between a photo taken by a mobile device or a high quality digital camera.
Old Paper-based Photos
But still, many memories remain in the old photos we cherish taken by the old generation analog cameras. Many of these photos sadly aren’t clear enough for a portrait, but even with old photos there are exceptions.
You will have to send them with snail mail to my studio for a review. If they can be used, I scan them into high-resolution images.
You will get the original photo back with the completed painting or drawing. After reading the information provided on this page and if your pet is still alive, please consider taking new photos with a digital system camera.
If you don’t own one yourself, borrow from family or friends or ask someone for help.
