ConVida is a non profit that focuses on the study and promoting the arts of the Americas.
After twenty years of extensive field work in Northeast Brazil, they had enough research to produce a national touring exhibit, along with a comprehensive book and promotional pieces. Around 150 carvings, sculptures, weavings and paintings were stored in a storage space the size of a two car garage. They needed to be photographed in a cost effective and timely matter, many of them with multiple views.
I was able so set up a white background and strobe lighting, along with the digital camera tethered to the computer, so that images could be reviewed and named while shooting. With two 4 hour sessions in one day, we were able to capture over 400 images that required minimal retouching and were able to be used immediately for high resolution printing, or smaller images for on line use.
