Behind the Lens

with 6 comments

At the gallery, we get lots of questions. The most frequent questions are about the artist and the technique used, of course. Those queries are easy to answer. But people also want to know about the pictures we use on the announcements. We’ve learned that many of our fans are keeping a collection of those mailings, and admire our graphics.

So, here’s a little peek behind the curtain, a look at something behind the scenes. Most of the photographs that we use on our announcements are by Anthony Cuñha. Few realize just how much effort goes into each shot. Tony is a master of lighting, because…well, that’s his medium. Here’s our friend and photographer, setting up the shot and documenting a Peter Voulkos plate. This session is at the gallery, and Tony is ably assisted by ace art handler, Steve Rivers.
