I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of different people and even had the chance to photograph awesome events and cool things, but I have never tried photographing artwork. This post is dedicated to photographing my friend, Peppy’s artwork (fused glass). You can read more about Peppy at her website — Peppy’s Art — but I just wanted to say that this is one of those projects I took on, simply because I wanted to. I wanted to connect with another artist, I wanted to help a fellow artist out and I knew we could both benefit from doing a shoot together. Peppy is a great model of someone who is dedicated to her craft and continues to pursue it because she truly loves it!
It’s nice to share your skills with someone just because, plus I have never really experimented with product photography so it was a new avenue for me to take on. Did I mention, I’ll get the chance to explore her craft and join her in her studio? I also loved talking to her. We have similar struggles, thoughts, dilemmas and stories. It’s nice to have that connection!
