Bending Iron

In an ongoing collaboration with the Maine Craft Association I recently had the pleasure of photographing Doug Wilson. Not only a master blacksmith living in Maine, Doug was also an incredible host, super gracious, and I might add patient, when it came to creating photographs together! The combination of fire and decades worth of soot and ash on the walls of his shop made for a pretty picture perfect photo location. I tried to create a bit of a mood in terms of lighting to help draw out a bit of the grittiness that is metal working. You can see some of Doug’s talent over at his website: here
