I took my Photo/Media students to the Twin Cities last week and one of the stops was the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. While they were wandering on their own, I wandered, too.
This glass display case has been part of the Design collection for many years and I have photographed the beautiful glass before. But I’ve never posted anything to this blog.
As you can see, I used a large aperture (f4) to blur the background. The dark purple jar stands out because of the color but the blur does even more to emphasize this specimen. What I like about the display case that the glass is sitting in is that everything else is pure white. It’s as if the glassware is floating in space.
