Museum of Glass Red Hot Gala

Made at the Museum: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II

I was invited to photograph Museum of Glass’s annual Red Hot Gala tonight.  What a fantastic turnout!  People were dressed up to the hilt, and the glass artwork was magnificent.  I meandered through the crowd, taking pictures here and there.  Cindy came along to assist me and provide moral support.  I wanted to make compelling compositions, not just take posed pictures of the patrons.  Although the glass artwork was breath-taking, photographing them was a challenge.  I’m including a few images I thought turned out well.  To see the entire set of 34 photos please click HERE.

    Love the bar – (all the glass, light in the back, dark in the foreground.)
    and the timeless art composition (people moving, art standing still)

    I love the action photos of the blowers, and the furnace really does look hot.
    Wonderful Bar shot with the glasses and lights.
