oxidized copper and stones again
I spent a bit of time with the photography here too, and ultimately I'm not too happy with it. A lot of the problem is that the shadows of the tubes are pretty much the same color as the tubes themselves. Partly, I think, that's because it was a dark and rainy day today, so even in front of a window there wasn't much ambient light beyond the 2 lights I have for photography. It made the lighting too harsh I think. I find these pieces hard to photograph, though, because if I put them on a white background it gives it a harsh look, but as I go toward a darker background, the tubes don't show up as well. Biba Schutz is a wonderful jewelry artist who mostly works with very dark oxidized silver, so I'll have to look at her website and see what her pictures look like.
