Shade Communication - Part 2: Photography
Not that long ago dentists simply wrote the shade on the prescription and asked that the restoration match it exactly or they gave a written description of how to change it. Never mind that the same tab is likely a little different on each version or that verbally describing color is ridiculous at best. Imagine instructions like, “add more translucency” and pretend that we all have the same measurement of more, a little more, or a lot more.
Most top ceramists generally agree on what is important in photography, while lamenting that they don’t receive it often enough. Most of you are familiar with our head ceramist Gary Nunokawa through his work at the Kois Center and other educational venues. I want to use this opportunity to give you insight on what an accomplished ceramist wants in photography and what Gary sees in the different photographs.
