Taking off door hinges

Hi..If you were to take off your doors and spray them somewhere other than in place what do you do about the hardware like hinges and doorknobs? I was thinking of using an hvlp on the trim. Would the answer be different if I brushed the door casing instead of hvlp? Thanks.

Most people that paint a door, remove all hardware off of them.

No matter how you paint them you should remove the hardware.
No way would I try and spray paint trim that's installed.
Going to spend way to much time masking, cleaning the gun, redoing all the paint that gets pulled off when you remove the tape.

Although I don't necessarily agree with some of what Joe said yes remove the hardware. Another tip if you remove more than 1 door at a time number them so they go back in the same hole.
