Last weekend, fellow artist and encaustic extraordinaire Jeremy Penn invited me to Red Hook for a studio visit. He mentioned a gentleman named Todd Masters from Black Umbrellas would be there – and suggested I bring a painting I wanted photographed.
Watching the process was impressive, as Todd managed the camera and lighting with a perfectionist tough. Art photography in of itself is truly a work of art.
If you are on the market for a personable art consulting company with excellent photographic capabilities, I would get in touch with Black Umbrellas. From their site:
