To recognize and support the work of students, Fine Woodworking will be devoting future Readers Gallery space to showcase current student work.

Photographing your work
Taking good photos of your work is one way to improve your chance of being featured in the magazine or on FineWoodworking.com. Here are some tips:
– Shoot your work against a neutral background; a bed sheet or drop cloth will suffice.
– Make sure you have plenty of indirect light from windows or light fixtures.
– Take photos from many angles, overall and up close, to provide a complete presentation of your work.
– Clean the furniture, and don’t clutter the object with items such as books or collectibles.
– Do not alter the images or remove the background electronically.
