Event Details

Photograping pictures and other objects in art galleries and museums is a special art, and can place significant demands on the photography. One has to manage the light that the galleries have chosen, as well ad their rules and permissions and prohinitions. Many, if not most, disallow the use of flash. Sometimes the work of art is behinf glass, so polarizing filters are needed. 'Framing' can be especially challenging, depending on gallery layout and the height and angle at which picture are hung. It's a genre I LOVE! Above is my own capture of Crivelli's 'Madoonna and Child'. I'll post some of my own numerous captures in a separate post, With the kind permission of St Augustine College, we'll do some practical work capturing some of their own remarkable art collection!
