Let the pros do it
I know three guys that went to college together and studied photography, so I thought I would get them to shoot some really nice photos of some of my best pieces. Jim Hines worked for years at Alderman Studios in the small products division, shot covers for Smithsonian Magazine, corporate product shots and lots of other things. Gerry swears he is the most brilliant photographer he has ever seen at lighting. Cole Martin (Corky) was Gerry's roommate in college and he is brilliant with photoshop and printing, and has the very coolest studio in downtown Greensboro, and then there is Gerry, who is just plain brilliant at everything when it comes to photography. So how could I go wrong! Jim used small mirrors to reflect light, which I would have never thought of doing, masked lights, masked his lens, moved and worked with shadows like magic and brought out so much depth in my work, the shots looked incredible.
Here is a short video I shot at Corky's studio today. Fun day! Waiting on Gerry to tone and crop and then I will post some really nice photos.
Thanks Guys!!! It was fun!
