For the past few years I've tought a short workshop to Corcoran book-arts students about photographing their artwork. In this workshops I focus on simple techniques that don't require a lot of equipment.
One of the things I like best about these workshops is getting to see the student work. Most of the time the students are early in their studies, so a lot of them have the same basic types of books. Where the work differs is the content they put in, and the artwork that fills the book.
