It is the glance of light give the painting life.

while shooting the jewelry photos in the studio, some sketches are sending at the same time, and that evokes my curiosity.
So I ask the photographer, "Even the published illustrations are taken with photography?  Why people don't just scan them?"
"Well. of course people can scan the paintings, using a scanner can make the result very precise, it collects all the color information. Nevertheless, the painting could look flat and boring. But if you shoot it with the camera, we know where to put the light on, and it is the glance of light give the painting life.  "
