How Artworks Should Be Shot

We had our photoshoot in Makati the other day for the first 40 works that have already been submitted for our Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project. The challenge here is to produce the banners so that the images are as faithful to the originals as possible.

Here's the open secret: it all starts with the photoshoot.

Fortunately for CANVAS, we have always had the support, professionalism and unparalleled expertise of Mike Cheung and Northlight Studios.

From the state of the art equipment...

To the stubborn, almost fanatical attention to light and detail...

To ensuring that we get all the colors right (note the color strip attached to the side of the painting)...

They make it possible for us to get very high resolution, very high quality picture files like these.

(Believe it or not, this entire sculpture was made
from a single, unbroken piece of wire.)
