Over the years I have accumulated quite a collection of art. I never throw anything away so I still have much of my artwork from high school on up through college. I think there are even some middle school pictures (*shudder*). Many of the pieces are are fairly large and I have always wanted to try to digitally archive them somehow. Scanning them didn't seem very cost effective so I decided to use a digital camera and take pictures of the artwork. Here is the setup.
I managed to get all my large format art photographed. After that I cropped and tweaked them a little to brighten them up or color correct them. Now I am working on scanning my smaller pieces. Here are some of the large works for your enjoyment.
From high school (ball point pen).
From college (airbrush).
