I  want to feature one image this week. This is an image I created of Sally Cohen’s oil on canvas work title “Harbor Lights.” For what’s probably obvious reasons, this piece was really difficult to replicate digitally. It’s really dark, and because of the finish, it’s a little shinny. Which creates a lot of reflection. But if you zoom in really close, you can see a good size harbor town in the distance. I had to bring this piece over to my home studio in order to get a good image. The only place I had room to set up was in the Living Room. It only took 42 exposures in 2 hours!  Lot’s of lighting replacement before I settled on using the speed lights. My living room looked like a multi-room fort with all the black backdrops I had to put up to minimize reflection. I think I did a pretty good job? What do you think?

Sally Cohen is represented by the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery and the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, OR.

I hope you like this week’s featured artist. Be sure to visit here every Tuesday for more information about the artists that I am fortunate enough to photograph on a regular basis. If you’d like to be featured here contact me via email at kindmuse@gmail.com.

On Thursdays I will typically feature a photo essay of images created by other photographers that I’ve come across online somewhere and enjoyed.

You can also stop by on Saturdays to see original Fine Art Photography created by me in my travels around Portland, OR and abroad.

Peace
