Photographing Books



  The suggestions so far about photographing outside or with natural light
are excellent. You might consider finding a photography student to help you
set up a main light and fill light (a reflector of any kind will do)
  If you have a manual camera and a course in how to use it is helpful but
not necessary. This allows you to control your lighting a little better.
Time of day is another big factor when you are using natural light. Most
photographers consider early morning (6-9) and evening light (5-7)to be
"sweet light". The earth's atmosphere helps to diffuse the sunlight some.
  Finally don't be afraid to approach a local professional photographer for
help. Many photographers consider themselves to be fine artists and would
love to help another artist to display their work.
