5715 FINAL

I have compiled 30 different pieces of art for the Bramblitt Galleries collection. This collection represents the art you would find in Jacqueline Serie and Jonathan Bramblitt’s house. The various types of art include 2D paintings, sculpture, mixed media and graphic design. These images were chosen for this collection because they represent a wide variety of the Bramblitt’s eclectic taste as well as John Bramblitt’s personal works. It is a mixture of humorous and figurative art pieces.

The challenges in capturing this collection were mainly in the recording process. Some of the pieces use resin or glaze causing the lights to reflect off of the surface. I used two StudioMax III 320 modeling lights at 45 degree angles. I would try to move the lights or the artwork to adjust the reflection. For the camera, I used a Canon T3I. I did not encounter too many challenges recording the sculpture work. I used white sheets for the background. If I had and unlimited budget I would prefer to flatbed scan the 2D works with a Synchron Scanner and use a large light tent for the sculpture. I used the The Portal to Texas History as an example when developing my scheme for the metadata. The scheme includes a description that contains the name, size and materials used. It also has the date created, who created it, the digitization date, the way it was recorded, any software manipulation as well as challenges and/or notes about the individual piece.
