Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #61


Janurary 25, 2013

The Museum has been closed for the past two weeks and during that time we have been lucky enough to be graced with the company of the charismatic and talented photographer David Ramsey. We once again took over the Reception Hall and made it into a studio for a photo shoot (while the rest of the Collections staff switches exhibitions in the gallery).

We were able to photograph over 40 Historic House objects. Chloe and I would clean, prep, and carry them over, while David would photograph different views and details. We had two different kinds of background set-ups (for small and large objects), as well as, photographing some objects in situ (like the Aeolian organ console--much too large to move!). Our selections ran the gamut. I know that I am excited to see the fruits of our combined labors when David Ramsey finishes his editing.
