from my photography position at the Peabody Essex Museum, & have in depth 
object lighting experience.  Please email off list to discuss if you like:

[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!

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

Hi Sarah
This is the advice from our multimedia department

Differing approaches can be used depending on the material the objects is made 
out of. And some materials are almost impossible to shoot without reflection.

1. A very diffuse light source.
2. Matt black walls in the studio.
3. Polarise the lens of the camera
4. Cross Polarise the light source
5. Shoot in a light tent

[MCN-L] Photography Question

2016-02-02 Thread Sarah Gillis
This query is for all of the photographers on the list-serv!

We are in the process of capturing new photography of some Greek vases which 
recently underwent conservation treatment.  No matter how much we try and 
filter it out, the reflection is very evident on these objects.  I wondered if 
anyone has experience with this type of material in photography and had any 
advice to capture a smooth surface, without the reflecting distractions?


Thank you!

Yeesh, it can be tough, your tackling one of tougher problems.  I think you'll 
get some good responses from MCN folks, and maybe someone nearby can pay a 
visit.   For publication quality, I really think you'll need some experienced 
professional help to, at the very least, consult with you on lighting and color 
management.  

Also, reflections can be creatively controlled with a combination of Photoshop 
use and basic lighting techniques.  Do you have a good Photoshop tech there?
