My job lately has been to photograph jewelry. I bid on a job to photograph and videotape an artist and her work a few weeks ago, got it, and its expanded into shooting all of the artists' work that are represented by this licensing company. (my movie "snow falling on chickory" has helped me so, no, blogging isnt a waste of time ) It's interesting work. Even better is that Chickory makes a great background setting for these sparkly things. And I get to stay home with the animals. This is my favorite from today's shoot. It's like a drop of nectar from the sun.
It has a life of its own as a photograph and its meaning is expanded beyond a literal cataloging of features. I think the limitations of my point and shoot cannon power shot 1000 have their virtues.
I almost didn't get the job because at one point they wanted me to have pro lighting and mic's and I just didn't want to do it. So I said so and lucked out after all.
Sumptuous late afternoon light, some sticks and a piece of turquoise paper gets me this shot from inside the studio on the west facing table. Boxer, Shamy and Susan do a lot of great photography, and they have been an inspiration. I've loved your great photo blogs, ladies, and I thank you. Actually, I've been inspired by everyone's photography and blogging in general so thank you all. But wait, uh oh, what's this?
No way, Easter!
