Dan received a call from a web design company that asked if I know how to photograph glass? I said isn’t glass clear? How do you photograph something that is clear? You photograph something that is clear very carefully. Machine Glass Specialist is a company who creates industrial glass pieces. These glass parts are used by companies all over the worlds as part of their manufacturing process. Some of these glass parts are clear, some are translucent, some parts are opaque. These machined parts are very precise and they wanted quality photographs that would represent their products.
Dan has years of experience helping companies with their image. One of the best decisions you can make is to hire a professional photographer to create content for your company’s web site. Very few contemporary photographer have a studio with lighting equipment that can produce high quality product photographs like these. Dan had a pre-photography discussion with the web site development company to go over all the details of the project. It was decided to photograph all the glass products against a black background. Dan used dramatic lighting to highlight the intricate details of each glass part. After the studio photographs were taken Dan edited the images so they were ready to use on the company’s new web site.

I have always been interested in history. I read the biography of the Wright Brothers by David McCullough. In it he wrote of the Wright Brothers purchasing an expensive, "modern," glass plate camera in order to document their experiment with flight. It dawned on me that the Wright Brothers, among all their talents, were photographers, as well. I am a native Daytonian yet I had never been out to Huffman Prairie where the Wrights had completed most of their experiments with flight. So I packed up and went out there with my camera and took a few photographs.
I did some research and spent some time looking at their images and realized that not much had really changed in the landscape at Huffman Prairie in all these many years. In fact, there was one image of the Flyer in the air that seemed to fit perfectly into one of my own photographs. My interests in history lead me to wonder how the city of Dayton looked 100 years ago and how the images of the past related to the present. This project is a combination of the history of 100 years ago with today.
The first photograph I created in my Wright Brothers series was the Amos Root quote image. It’s a photograph of the catapult the Wright Brothers built to propel their machine up to speed quickly out at Huffman Prairie. After I looked at the images I created I started looking at other images the Wright’s had made and found the image of the plane flying at Huffman Prairie. Using PhotoShop I combined the two images so that the horizons lines up. The image I found the image of the plane on the internet and I thought my final image was very successful. The only problem was the Wright’s image was a low resolution internet image. So I started doing some research and found that both the Library of Congress and Wright State University library had scanned many of the Wright Brothers original prints and negative in high resolution. I contacted Wright State University and they allow me to obtain the images I need directly from them. I am also able to download high rez original scans from the Library of Congress.
My first trip out to Huffman Prairie was in the winter of 2015. I did research on both Wright State library and the Library of Congresses web site and knew what images were there so last summer my wife and I went Kitty Hawk, South Carolina to visit the National Park. While there I created many photographs that I could use with Wright Brothers photographs. One of the Wright Brothers other attributes was they were prolific writers. They both keep detailed journals. The Library of Congress have scanned their journals and Wright State Uni library has many original journals which is where I get the quotes included in each piece. I also get the quote from a couple books I have read including David MaCullough’s auto-biography of the Wright Brothers.
Here is my donation this year to Think TV’s auction. Many businesses from the Dayton area donate products and services for them to auction as a fundraiser. I donate a family portrait and wall portrait every year. The family portrait can be on location at a park, or at the winner’s house. It’s a great time to get the whole family together, all the aunts and uncles, all the cousins, all your brothers and sisters together for a portrait. Go to my family portrait page to see more samples, ClearyCreativePhoto.com/family_portraits.
I also donate a piece of art. This winter I created a photograph of Downtown Dayton after sunset. In winter the Miami River is usually higher because the ground is frozen and all the water runs into the river. The higher river creates a beautiful reflection of the downtown buildings. Go to my fine arts photography page to see more Downtown Dayton images. ClearyCreativePhoto.com/downtown-dayton-fine-arts-photographs/
