Bad lighting girl. . .

The problem with drawing at night is attemping to take a picture on the kitchen table with horrible lighting.   
Do you have any easy solutions to this dilemma?  Besides the obvious - take your pics in the daytime!

She's beautiful - I never would have known the lighting was bad!

Very nice drawing. I can't tell there's bad lighting either.

Sorry I don't have any suggestion. Reading your question and thinking about it, I don't take pictures of my work since almost all my work is digital. The few that I do are small that I can scan them in.

I have had the same problem, even with good lighting at night, so.... I just leave my work till the morning, or scan it if it fits in the scanner. It is still a great picture with great shading.

I have a big fluoro light that I pop over the top of my pages at night.. My photos are never that great anyway I think, but I try.. Your photo looks great to me. Love her she just has a mystical look about her..

She looks just fine to me. I don't use the flash anymore when I am in a lighted room unless I have to and I've had much more success with my photos. Sometimes I use the "fill flaw" setting if the light isn't too bright in the room though.

She is just lovely. I can't help you with the lighting problem as I am unable to take decent pictures no matter the lighting or camera. I like the scanner suggestion though. Best of luck!

I like the suggestions. It's my question too. I'm going to try not using flash and full daylight. I'm usually too impatient to post the photo during the time I have to do it. I'm just thankful I've gotten it done. In your case, it might look like two different pictures in the day light and in dim light, but either way, I think it's lovely.

She is wonderful. And I have the same problem. If I can't take pictures during the daylight, which is always hard to do during winter months (by the time I come home from work it's dark) I set up several daylight lamps but it is a hassle. Happy Thanksgiving.

I love her eyes! Don't have a solution, except for scanning. When I make small artworks or something in my journal I always scan it. Much easier that pictures, and often better quality ....

I use a "Daylight" (brand name, also OTT lights do the same thing) desk lamp when crafting at night, and I use it when I take my photos as well. Using this light removes the yellow caste. I think your lighting doesn't detract in any way from this gorgeous girl.
