thanks, I needed that

Hi again Robert, THANK YOU for this tutorial. Even though I don't have proper lights, using even table lamps (sans shades) on two sides has improved my photos of paintings.

One more question: How bright do the two lights need to be, in terms of watts or? In your demo, when you took the shot, there was a flash. Do you recommend flash photography, in addition to the two lights?

Excellent, informative, non-threatening. When I've asked 'friends' who were pro photographers, they tried to make it complicated and discouraging, so that I'd feel I had to hired them. They would never answer questions about what kind of lights to buy. Thank you very much!

Also would like to see tips on photoing 3D work.

As long as your camera is on automatic, you're safe. If you use manual with F stops, and you want to bracket then it gets more complicated for slides. He didnt talk about that. How about a second video on the more advanced stuff.
