Corn set

I often photograph objects in museums. No sculpture that much nor paintings, but everyday objects- furniture or tableware. I also feel bad about. It feels like cheating a bit. Somebody did a job for me, to position the object in very thought through manner, style its surroundings, and most importantly- light it. I am fascinated by the elaborate lighting in many museums. In Met in NYC, you can see the simple object lit from many sides, creating the patterns of shadows worth photographing by itself. But the interesting lighting also makes for great specular highlights and playing shadows, like for this corn set. I photographed it in St Louis Art Museum.
