Capture items so perfectly in pixels your photos are as good as seeing the real thing.
What you'll need:
- Digital camera or film camera plus scanner.
- A location with good lighting - Natural, outdoor light works best.
- A backdrop - Placing your items against a plain fabric or cloth makes them stand out.
The Perfect Shots
