Atomic Threshold: part two
I recently helped Christian shoot part two of his new inventory. I think chairs look so regal in photographs and task lamps so bashful.
Photographing furniture is a nice change of pace from photographing people (especially when those people come in the form of intoxicated wedding party members). But shooting still objects also poses some of its own unique challenges. It’s nice to have a subject completely still, malleable (there’s no such thing as a drunk chair). Because of this complete stillness, product photography really requires that you pay close attention to what you’re shooting, the details, the shadows, the lines, the angles, where your body is in relation to the subject—-all the things that really matter in photography but can get lost in the blur of shooting fast-paced events. It’s a nice exercise.
These last few weeks have felt like a blur, with very little time left to do any updating here. I’ve been busy with all sorts of things, among them shooting the first screening of this short film and getting two (yes, two!) of my Etsy shops full of nice things. I’m selling prints of my images here and vintage goods here. Images from the film screening and a recent engagement shoot to come.
