In November 2015 I was asked to be a part of a show invented by Cindy Stovall in St. Pete called ‘Exposure’. The artist list was all the best artists and photographers. Artists are paired with a photographer.
The concept is to photograph the artist making a piece of art, and the photograph is showcased with the art. Now, I am not one to showcase portraiture in an art show. To me that is a commercial service, not something I would usually put in a show. But that’s because I am not a portraiture artist.
Of course I said ok I want to do MACRO or CONCEPTUAL. For Exposure I was paired with my friends Eva Avenue and Sal St. Germain. Here is what Sal and I created.
I went to Sal’s shop with my macro lens fully intending to macro the starburst of a mig welder. This was the stupidest photoshoot I have ever done. Incredible results, but my lens suffered a little bit. Still works fine and continue to use it but resale value is down. O well! No regrets. I would focus and he would say 1-2-3 and I would close my eyes and click the shutter as much as my lights would go off until he was done making a weld.
