3D Objects

Photographing 3D objects to museum standards comes with its own particular challenges.

Each object usually needs its own individually tailored lighting. A shiny sculpture will demand different lighting to a tapestry or embroidery, for example.

Also, they come in all shapes and sizes. The Inge King bronze work in the series below was over 3 metres tall, and had to be shot in the car park at the front of my studio (later deep etched). 

3D objects can be the most time consuming items to digitise - but the challenges can also make them very satisfying problem solving exercises for a photographer.
