Art Photography can be a real challenge. But if your me that only makes things more interesting. Which is why when Robert Stokes asked me to photograph his work I was very pleased.
Part of the challenge in photographing art is that your job is essentially to represent the artists work without adding too much to it. This can be a challenge when using artificial or studio light because while in some more commercial settings a flashy look can be good. In this case its not. I took great care to highlight Roberts brush strokes and all the texture of each piece because it was such an integral part of the piece.
