What is an Artisan?
- a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
“street markets where local artisans display handwoven textiles, painted ceramics, and leather goods”
We make our subscription plans available to Artists, Artisans & Photographers but what do we mean by Artisans? Basically, any quality handmade craft falls into this category, excluding food & drink related crafts.
Supplying close-up images
Naturally, with the type of work listed above, many pictures are going to be close-ups so need to be of sufficient quality to display well in full screen whether it is a PC, Tablet or Phone.
If you’re new to taking photographs of your work then there are many online resources that explain how to get the best results. Some solutions, e.g. a simple lightbox (lined with white paper) and lit with a couple of ‘daylight’ LEDs can easily be fashioned and can produce professional looking results.
Producing photographs, such as the pottery one above, is much easier. Just a get a friend or family member to take the pic and then crop the image to your likeing.
Just do some Google research and you will definitely find a solution that is right for you.
Make sure you take all images at your camera/tablet/phone’s highest resolution (quality). When you supply images here for your gallery, best results will be achieved if you make the shortest side of your image approx. 2000 pixels.
It doesn’t matter if they are larger than this, or a touch smaller, as we will resize each pic when creating your gallery.
Why this size? It enables us to show your work full-screen on the majority of devices, PCs, tablets etc. Also, all gallery images on the site are protected from right-clicking and saving. Anyone looking to steal your work will only be able to use a low-resolution screenshot.
