With a make shift studio and some budget continuous lighting you can pull off something pretty decent. These were the first set of shots I took for Giancarlo Arcieri after watching build this violin from the start to finish which in itself was a great experience to watch and getting the document it made it all that much better.
This was from first time I was able to sit with Giancarlo Arcieri (GC for short) while he was making a violin, a process I never seen before even with all the hours of watching shows like How It’s Made.
This blurry violin was in the shop for a neck reset.
This was the last Violin I photographed before Giancarlo Arcieri moved away from New York City for warmer weather. I really miss the random conversations we would have while I sat there and watched him work.
