[MCN-L] Photography Question Follow-Up

2016-02-04 Thread Sarah Gillis
Dear Group,

When I had put out the query regarding photographing Greek vases, I was not 
prepared for the overwhelming responses I received.  I'm glad I'm not alone in 
facing these object struggles.  Our staff photography and I would like to thank 
everyone for their contribution and suggestions in how to best approach these 
objects.

There is a true sense of community in this group and we are so grateful!

Thank you!

Best Regards,

Good luck Sarah.  If there were any responses that were overly informative, 
maybe with studio  set up pics, could you share?  It would help.
