Garlic with Silver Cup

Garlic with Silver Cup
oil on canvas panel
6" x 6"

Just put the finishing touches on the "Garlic with Silver Cup" piece. It took me a while to get a decent photograph of this painting. It seems I always lose subtle color variations and detail in the photographs. All my paintings to this point have had a dark background, which reflect a lot of light back at the camera. Do any of you have tips for photographing dark paintings?

Hi David
If this is what you are up to after 12 years away you are going to be amazing if you carry on this way. Glad I found your blog :-) Just keep the good stuff coming.
Photographing artwork ... the bane of us all. Send me your e-mail and I'll tell you what I do, although yours seem fine to me.
New trompe l'oeil on my blog if you want to take look ;-)
