When I first started out in business, I tried to take my own photographs but I soon realized I am not a photographer. I can occasionally take a decent picture but for really high quality images, I need a professional. Lighting is everything in photography and I didn't have the set up, knowledge or tricks of the trade to be able to make a photograph of my work accurately reflect the piece. This week I was at the studio of my friend and favorite glass photographer, David Glasofer. I had created some large glass butterflies with words "kiln-carved" in them-- this one says LOVE but you would never be able to see that if I was the photographer! With lightening, knowledge & Photoshop magic, David snapped, clicked, and edited and in no time, created 4 lovely photos of my pieces. This is especially important to me since most of my work is residential commissions which means they are only seen by the homeowner, their friends, and family. I have been working with David for almost 10 years and he is always careful, patient & professional and because of that, I can share images of my work with pride. If you haven't worked with a professional photographer, I highly recommend it. Next week I'll post a few of the photos he took.
