My cup overfloweth! Defintely a fun and challenging assignmnet this week! Shot for the cover layout seen here which of course guided my subject matter.
The original assignment for this was actually glass bottles but the ongoing moving has forced me to downsize most of my odds and ends or leave them in storage so I took advantage of having access to some antique crystal instead. I’m actually doing a series on the set so I’ll post a gallery when it’s completed but trying to stay in the blogging habit I wanted to show one of the images in progress.
Glass is a challenge in itself and I’ve quickly discovered that crystal only amplifies these challenges. Not only the more intricate shaping but the fact that it was done by hand create countless anomalies that are invisible to the naked eye but become very prominent in a large, detailed, still image.
