I'm having a little hard time taking photos of my pencil drawings. I recently posted a question about noise & blurriness.
Here the thing is, my art looks much better on paper but when I take photos, I see following problems:
- It loses contrast
- Dark shades becomes little bright (Which shouldn't be)
See the photo taken here:
The darkness of spot marked by green line is very close to my actual drawing, but same darkness becomes brighter at many other places (marked by red). And some white dots (imperfections in drawing), which are less visible in actual drawing, becomes more highlighted here (see yellow circle).
One possible reason can be there's either too much light (I'm not sure, I've attached a photo of my room lights below) that is causing brightnes or some camera settings is wrong.
And if I decrease the light of room, the dark spots become less brighter and better but overall photo becomes darker. Which is bad again.
Here is the photo info:
Here is another photo, using natural light from window, in which left portion is better but right portion became brighter.
Here is photo of 2 lights in my room. I placed the artwork (A3 size) on the mirror that is in the middle of the image.
My camera is Nikon B500 point & shoot camera.
So, is the small sensor is the reason for it? Or the light is too much or too less?
And if I want to reduce these problems (brighter spots, one side is better other is brighter) using Photoshop, is it possible to do it?
