Photographing Paper Work:

Scan paper work if you can. A scanner is exponentially better than a camera.

A great solution to photographing large paper work is to get a blank canvas, board or any flat support, and tape the paperwork to the board and photograph it just like you would a painting. Loosely tape the backside of the paperwork as to not damage the art itself. Make sure to mount the paper work squarely onto the support, if it is crooked you’ll just end up with crooked photographs which will lead to a cropping nightmare later. When you mount the work to a support try to mount it as flat as possible.

Wrinkled, curled, or wavy artwork should be flattened before photographing. If at all possible avoid rolling your work, try to store your work flat and in a safe place that will not lead to damages.
