All of my art is photographed with a modest Sony Cybershot 5.1 mgpxl camera, preferably in North daylight for best color correction. I will sometimes photoflash at night but this can cause reflections and glare on the smoother papers such as Strathmore Artagain and Stonehenge.
Virtually anything can be photographed with a modest digital camera today and posted to the web. Then open the photos in Photoshop as it is a great aid to adjust size, color balance, brightness and contrast. Though I never manipulate my sketch art with Photoshop. *Refer to my gallery link above post. I am at a remote computer and could not link it again here currently.
I look forward to seeing you sketching,

Just a couple of weeks ago I bought a new Canon 8 meg A590IS. Wow, what a camera for the price. Anyway, it replaced a 4 year old 3.2 meg Canon A70. I had no problems posting photos of "things" but never really got a good shot of a book cover or other similar printed material. Hmmm, north daylight, eh. Will give it a try.
