    I was asked to come in to this museum and do a photo shoot for a flyer and a brochure. The lighting was terrible, and the space was extremely small. I was told I was limited on the amount of additional lighting I could bring in. I had one light, my reflector, and my on camera flash. Hardest shoot I've ever done. Here's the results. Be harsh if needed, but only if you're going to be constructive too!

    I liked the puppeteer's hands in this - the puppeteer didn't want any hands showing - I'll probably crop it for print (easy to do since I've also been hired to do the graphic design on the brochure and flyer).

    Marionnettes

    These two familiar faces were shot through glass. Good results with my polarizing filter.

    I thought she was the gem of the show - also shot through glass

    Another set of marionnettes - focusing on their string and controllers

    I'm not sure if those are the original puppets. This is the "World Wide Puppetry Museum", so it makes you wonder, but the museum is located in an itty bitty town in Northern Utah, so I can't imagine the chances of them getting something as great as that!

    It does make you wonder! The curator wasn't around as I shot this one, and the little card didn't say one way or the other!

    Thanks for looking!
