Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Photo review, part 2, part of Narrative Portraiture: Portraits of Two Texas Artists.
The amount of time that we had with David was pretty limited,…so I knew that I needed to keep things moving.…After having captured some photographs in his backyard and made this picture, I…was ready to move on.…At that point, we went into his workshop, his studio space, and I was taken…aback by it.…This picture I think captures it all.…All of these different cans and wires and materials, a nice natural, soft light.…He is obviously a man who's incredibly creative and likes working with materials.…
So what I wanted to do in this space is to capture some images of him kind of in…the midst of his workshop, making things.…I also have this agenda of trying to get Keith to help me out, to make some…photographs, to be my photography mentor or coach.…So here are some of the pictures that I made.…This first one is a candid moment as we are talking, and he's smiling.…I like this picture, because a lot of the other photographs are really serious.…This one captures a bit more of his warmth.…Then we walked over to some of his pieces.…
In this installment, Chris travels to Texas to visit two artists: David Cargill, a Beaumont sculptor who works with bronze and marble, and Charles Stagg, another Beaumont sculptor but in recycled and found materials. Chris takes their portraits and spends time discussing the composition and lighting in each session.
Chris also reviews the photos he took, and discusses the gear he used and the lessons he learned while visiting with and photographing these artists.
