Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #14

January 21, 2011
One of the goals of this project includes creating professional images of our collection objects. Today was the last day of a successful shoot with photographer David Ramsey. Elizabeth Williams-Clymer (Assistant Registrar & ECP Project Manager) and I have been camped out in the auditorium for the past two weeks--where we put together our own photo studio. David created sets for both two-dimensional works (prints & paintings) and three-dimensional objects (sculpture & some decorative arts).

We were able to shootover 115 objects (many including details)! It was tiring to move around so many works, but extremely satisfying. We are thrilled with the results. These new images will be a great addition to, not only our documentation, but our future website and publications.
