Adapting to these new times

On the plus side, most artists can engage in their creative endeavors in the solitude of their studios, homes or outdoor locations. On the minus side, exhibiting artwork has changed considerably. Currently, museums and galleries are closed to avoid large public gatherings. Many have shifted to “virtual exhibitions.” We are all shifting how we work and enjoy art, and those changes will likely continue for some time into the future.

With the rapid increase in online exhibitions, artists and exhibition organizers are more intensely aware of the importance of top-quality photography of the artworks. Color fidelity, sharp detail, and professional lighting are critical to creating an online reproduction of flat or dimensional art objects that can fully engage the viewer.

Hopefully this time of social isolation will lead to an explosion of creative production by artists. It is also a good time to plan to have artwork professionally photographed. The Scientific Photographer will be here so that you can achieve the level of photographic reproduction that will lead to the very best in virtual exhibitions while also documenting your career accomplishments. 

We are here now to help with planning photographic documentation work that we can produce as soon as we re-open the studio. We’ll use “curbside service” to ensure your work can be dropped off at the studio without close contact in order to continue social distancing practices.
