Trying Out New Lighting Ideas
This is probably splitting hairs for most folks... but for me, this gives me fits at times. It is one thing to create nice even flattering light. It is another thing completely to add drama to your light while still keeping the subject well balanced. Not a simple task.
Today's subject is a face bowl from Frank Ozereko. Frank was my ceramics professor at UMASS when I was in college. He sent me these after we caught up to one another at the Craft Boston show a few years ago. I love the rich texture and character in these bowls! The best part is that there is a different face on the flip side. Once I figure out what sort of light works best for these, I am going to shoot all four faces and do a composite image. Things to come.
So, what image grabs you? Is there one that really fails to communicate?
