Custom Stoneware

Mindy Erickson, of Custom Stoneware, contacted me to do some product photographs of her cool pottery.  She makes some really beautiful pieces that I wish had found a way into my cupboards. 😉   It was a different job for me, but it was very interesting to do; the attention to every single detail of shadow, light, reflection, and color was significantly different than my standard ‘people’ and wedding photography – where those things are important, but can’t be ‘tweaked endlessly’ and also fall second to the main goal; which, for me, is emotion, connection, and the scene as a whole.  Remove the ’emotion’ and once-in-a-lifetime-ness, and suddenly the rest of what makes an image falls into stark clarity.

Spending an hour creating only a few images was a frustrating, yet strangely peaceful, zen-like, process.
