I have to take studio-grade macro photographs everyday of my professional work as a rare book and illuminated manuscript conservator. I also produce high-quality facsimilies and museum quality exhibit reproductions which require the highest (50 megapixel and up). I shoot tethered to a computer and for the most part think much of the advice here is pretty good.
HOWEVER. I shoot almost all my model work with an iphone. I simply dont have the time, or inclination to stop what Im doing to setup a small studio to take an in-process shot. I didnt see anyone talking about this... Anyhow, my point is this:
I love to see the final photography of everyones work, with high detail and plain backdrops and great lighting. However...as a novice and someone learning from you guys... Please, more shots of the truly in-process stuff. The "I just planked my hull" shots are great, all polished its amazing how you got to that point.... but dont forget the value of grabbing a quick less than stellar shot of your clamping, your spiling technique, your sanding stick, your bench, your setup ANYTHING. Many of us are trying to learn everything we can, often in isolation, with only this forum as a guide. Now I know many of you are not here to teach, as much as you are here to show your work to other equally accomplished builders, however I will encourage and do appreciate those who are interested in teaching and hope they do not forget that much of what you probably consider mundane steps are things that some of us can benefit a great deal from.
That is all... use your crappy phone, take crappy photos... Some us dont care and for very good reasons. Best to all and thanks to all!!
