Photographing a painting by the Irish painter Thomas Roberts at private residence in Greenwich, CT for National Gallery of Ireland. Image is for planned publication by Churchill House Press (www.churchillhousepress.com) in association with Thomas Roberts focused exhibit in Ireland.
Well actually the make the full painting image the camera was, of course, right up to the chandelier. Luckily not higher, but squeezing my head in to view was comical.
A very dark painting, though I captured plenty of detail. It took me about 5 minutes before I found the signature for a detail even if it was half covered by the frame.
Thanks to the collector/homeowner, Brendan Rooney at the National Gallery of Ireland, and William Laffan at Churchill House Press in London.
