How to Take Photos
When sending photographs to us for evaluation, the most helpful shots are those done “straight on”, such as the traditional reference shots found on our site: back, head, top for instruments and frog, tip for bows. Details of the scroll, f-holes, ribs, edgework, etc are helpful as well.
It is best to use natural light and a plain background such as a white sheet.
To see examples of reference shots and upload your images, visit our Valuations page.
