  1. Don't clean your object! We want dust, we want wear, we want objects that have lived a life.
  2. Photograph your object using a plain uncluttered background. If you do not have a plain wall to photograph against, place a solid colour card / piece of paper behind the object.
  3. Turn off the flash and use natural light if possible.
  4. Use a tripod or rest your camera / phone on something to avoid shake and blur.
  5. Fill the frame with the object.
  6. Take multiple photographs at different angles to highlight important details.
  7. If your object is a photograph / printed material and you have access to a scanner, use that instead of taking a photograph for best results.
