Here are a few tips for photographing your old letters:
Photograph in color rather than black-and-white or grayscale. Avoid using any of your camera's filters; however, please use focusing tools to make the writing in the letter as clear as possible.
Photograph or scan at the highest resolution available (but preferably at least 300 DPI/PPI, or dots-per-inch/pixels-per-inch).
If you are photographing, photograph your documents against a white background (preferably); a sheet of white paper larger than the document is ideal. Try to avoid photographing documents on dark or patterned backgrounds, as these often can cause difficulty with the focusing mechanism. Position your document so that all edges of the paper are visible.
