Art
Shooting other's art is a controversial point.  Is the photographer copying them? Is he not being creative, or showing a lack of originality? Or perhaps creating something off the hard work of others?  While all are good points, the underlying assumption to them all is that the photographer who shoots other's work is doing something. He is creating himself. He is offering his interpretation of something that exists, no different than a picture of a bridge, a building, a rainbow or a waterfall.

I enjoy shooting scuplture for the difficulties in the lighting.  Classic marble sculture has such texture that the camera picks up things the eye can't even see while looking.

Below are some examples of "my" work. Of course, "made entirely possible through the help of viewer like you", and the original artists.
