I've taken a 9 x 12 cardboard panel (I used the back panel of a canvas pad) and taped a strip of 1/2 " wide foam board across the bottom. Then I set the canvas on that ledge and put another 1/2 " foam board strip across the top of the panel. I clip the strip at both edges with heavy clips. Because of the cushiony foam inside of the foam board, you push down a little before clipping, and it really holds the canvas well. It's then easy to carry outside to photograph. I've put vertical strips of masking tape at the edges where a 6 x 6 and a 6 x 8 canvas would hit. This just protects the back panel a little. These are easy to set on my easel. I've tried using push pins and duct tape, and like this method. I now have several of these, so I can leave the painting on until it's dry.

I wanted to work with reflective light on white. I have a blue fabric on the right side and a pinkish one on the top-left side. It really exaggerates the reflections. And I wanted to work with a light subject on a light background. I usually go for more contrast.
