When Work Was Work

After living with part of this image as the original header on this blog for a couple of days, I sensed the need to change it. I’m glad I did, as the waterfall works better. Additionally, it now allows me to share this with you without it feeling redundant.

As I’d mentioned in the Kicking It Off! blog post, this is one of a series that I was contracted to shoot for Workbench magazine. Click the above link to that post for a more in-depth description.

By itself, this image tends to have a wee bit of standing-on-your-head feel to it. When the type was placed, that went away and a beautiful page was born.

Once again, warming gels were used to create a golden warmth to the wood and brass. It’s a trick of the trade that too few shooters take the time to deal with. When done properly however, it elevates the shot into that intangible art realm, as opposed to a snapshot. Maybe someday, a calendar will be born of these images.
