In the Shadow of Sculpture

When photographing small sculpture, shadows play a large part in showing form and dimension. We have all commented while showing a photo. “It looks better in person.” Capturing a sculpture in the flattened state of photography can be challenging. Especially if it is your job. I have to attempt to convey the feeling of the sculpture while keeping the representation true. Using shadows, structure and perspective I try to express the mood of each piece. It can be the difference between showing a picture and selling a sculpture. The act of holding a piece, feeling its weight and embracing the composition with human hands is not easily reproduced.

The images here were not needed to sell the sculpture as it was a gift I made for a friend.

As always, thank you for reading! -Kevin

Me working on a sculpture in veneration of Ferdinand the bull

 

Doing what I love, being overworked, should not be possible. So interestingly, it’s not work, but the day to day that overwhelms. I am overworked doing laundry, cleaning my apartment, getting groceries, keeping my great little old truck running. My anxiety of being overworked comes from the time lost on creating another sculpture or piece of art knowing that I can only complete a finite number of works in this life. So I am overworked, not from my job, overworked with the little things life requires. ~ Kevin A Moore
