I take my large pieces out side and let the sun be my light source. I set them up on and easel facing the sun. Then take a high def camera and line it up as flat on to the piece as possible, then I take the pic's. Then I open them in my PS software and clean them up. Admittedly the quality would be better with a big scanner. I also just got my hands on a 7.5 mp digital camera I'm going to try. The thing is you need to work with the light sensitivity and Megapixel functions on the camera, taking several shots at different sensitivity and Megapixel settings then when you get all your pic's on the computer, you need to pick the best one. It can be a pretty tedious process. Be creative. Good camera work is an art all to itself and worth it to learn. With this new camera I'm trying, it has a better flash and I'm going try working with halogen lamps set at different angles to try to up the quality of my shots. Maybe even create some different effects that I can digitally enhance. Maybe I'll take some pic's to show you what I'm talking about.
