Photographing Your Work

This page is a series of pictures and descriptions of the process of photographing woodturnings  (and other craft objects).

This is a somewhat dated, but hopefully useful link.  Most of my photography is now done with a Sony A100 Digital SLR camera.  The set up is still basically the same.  More things may be added as I get to it. 

Please check back for future updates.
