Oh Snap! Photo contest - Application
Taking photos of jewellery and metal art is tough! Full spectrum lighting and the right amount of diffusion are necessary to accommodate sparkly, shiny and translucent, often together. Macro lenses highlight every scratch and speck of dust. That mirror finish you spent hours perfecting, reflects everything in the room. Not to mention the background, which must provide the right amount of contrast so that the bright colours and tiny details are not swallowed up. Adding shadows and atmospheric drama? We are impressed, because we know what it’s like.
The Vancouver Metal Arts Association is excited to present our 2020 Oh Snap! contest. We are seeking high quality images that represent our community to feature in our new website and in future social media campaigns. This includes close-up photos of your work and photos of you working in-studio. Preference will be given to photos of work made with interesting material combined with metal and those that demonstrate impressive workmanship.The photos will be captioned with credit to the artist.
