COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY | Commissioned Glass Sculpture Photography

A series of images commissioned by the Yorkshire based artist Wendy Tea for promotional use.

Natural light was found to be the best way of lighting the large, delicate glass sculptures so to get the best colours and tones from the glass. A number of studio lighting techniques were used and achieved good results  –  a slow exposure and torchlight created the high contrast images . The client however preferred natural light which created its own challenges as it was found that the light would be just right for a couple of minutes before changing.

The use of natural light also reflected the artwork’s compelling influences coming from the natural world and especially from light through water.
