Superbowl Sunday shooting ART!
Man, I’ve been over-worked the last few days! I had yet another shoot planned today, missing the Habs vs Bruins afternoon pre-superbowl game. Apparently I didn’t miss much. But in return I got to spend some quality time with works of art. I was asked by painter and artist Eve Duhamel
who is currently based in Berlin, to shoot her paintings so she could have high res shots for a major portfolio presentation of her work. So I headed downtown into an amazing commercial building and I was opened the door to the whole office. I was able to setup to do some art reproduction.
When reproducing art, you’re looking for a specific light. One that doesn’t influence the perception of the piece. Your usual setup is two bowls at 45˚ on each side of the camera criss-crossing the piece to give it even illumination. Using your light meter, you need to mesure and adjust your lights until your reading is even. If you’re serious about what you are doing, I was told it’s better to use polarizing filters on the lights, but I didn’t go that far.
It was nice to manipulate Eve’s paintings and see them from that close. It felt like I was having a privileged moment with these pieces.
