New Mexico Glassware Art Photography with Noah Starer

New Mexico Glassware Art Photography with Noah Starer

A big photography art challenge

Long-time photography client Noah Starer has made the transition from ceramic artist to glass artist in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It took me some time to figure out the technical aspects of photographing his ceramic work to his desired style outcome, but that time compared to how long it took me to figure out how to photograph this new series of glassware was well, incomparable. It took hours and lots of trial and error to get a shooting setup that minimized glare first, then reflections second. Most of the pieces were glossy and made of reflective glass, so you can imagine the challenge involved when you need to use off camera lighting to make them pop, and then stand in front of the piece of glass to actually photograph it. You can see the BTS shot of what I finally settled on as a shooting setup at the far bottom of this post.

Story of Color and Motion in ABQ

While wondering around downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico as part of the First Friday Art Walk event, a curious looking space had its door open allowing views of swirling color. To my surprise this visual art event was dog friendly so in we went! As you walk on the floor, color moves. How does it to that? Seemed like magic! Tables flow with changing patterns that react to hand movements, also seemingly by magic! People really loved interacting with light and color and art. This was a fantastic stumble upon experience!

Ceramic View

Noah Starer is a regular art photography client based in Santa Fe. He is a very original ceramic artist. This time he brought to the JCP Home Studio these eye catching wall ceramic art pieces. I think they look like the ocean and the Earth with their respective swirling color blends. Imagine one of these pieces across from your desk giving your eyes and mind a creative break seeing something different in the piece every time it is looked at.

Ceramic artist Noah Starer, now Santa Fe based, brought his latest collection of ceramic art to the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico for photos to be made of 25 new pieces.  I have photographed a lot of Noah's art in the past, and was glad to be able to attend his opening weekend exhibition of his work, titled Naked Clay, at Santa Fe Clay earlier this summer!  I am glad to have seen his art career journey from Las Lunes now to Santa Fe and all the success he is deservedly having now.  He is also teaching classes at Santa Fe Clay so check for when his next classes are to learn how to create your own naked clay!

Albuquerque New Mexico Art Photography - ocean or desert

Ceramic artist Noah Starer visited my Home Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico twice this week with a lot more of his great artwork.  Featured here are pieces he informally named, "tumbleweeds," in blue above and tan below.  He suggested people can choose between the ocean and the desert!  I like that idea a lot, and of course I would choose ocean for myself.  If you like these pieces, you can contact Noah via his website below.  He has been a long time repeat client and making creative art photos of his work has been a fun, on going challenge as the shapes and sizes of his ceramic art changes each time he brings me new pieces.
