I have a lot of trouble photographing artwork, especially mosaics with their shiny and glossy tesserae. Right now Edward is trying to doctor the mirrored sections of a mosaic mirror I took a picture of last week.
Here it is with the mirror section blanked out and the mirrored (grid-like) section at the top color-corrected to stark white. It looks better, but you can't really tell that those are mirror pieces.
On the subject of photography, my friend Michelle, an excellent photographer, supplied the picture of me that I added to the blog this week. I just wanted to credit her for her photo. Her pbase site is: www.pbase.com/EthicalHeretic.
Lots of lovely pictures there.
