Whenever I visit the Worcester Art Museum, I usually spend time in the Knights exhibition. However, I also like to tarry in some other part of the museum. I have recently been going to the Pre-Columbian collection on the 4th floor of the facility.
Like many museums, flash photography is out of the question. Therefore the ability to build some drama into the object must be done with the available light. This can be done if you take the time to study the situation and pick the proper viewing angle (please notice the 3 levels of shadows to the left of the figure.) In addition, converting the image to chromatic greyscale and adding a small amount of dodging and burning completed the goal of adding drama.
This image was made using a 60mm (90) macro lens on a cropped sensor camera.
Until next time...
