Art

"In 2000, I was hired to photograph art for Centaur Art Galleries in Las Vegas where I worked for the following 12 years.  I was initially provided with a Kodak digital camera, just a notch above a Fischer-Price model.  I refused to use it.  I was later provided with a better camera, but it was still a consumer-grade point-and-shoot.  For these images, I used my own camera, which wasn't much better than the toys the company provided.  I had zero budget for lighting, so to compensate for poor equipment, I spent a lot of time editing the images.  My goal was to make my photos look as close to the art as possible.  Although they're not particularly impressive photographs, I include them here because I'm happy with the accuracy.  They never compared to the original art, although I did have some people tell me they were better than the art.  That's when I knew I had failed."
