Picture of the Week – Empty Artstore

with one comment

The artstore in the Museum of Transport is now just about cleared out with all the paintings previously stored here now having moved to state of the art storage at the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre.

This image shows the final steps being taken in safely protecting and wrapping the paintings before the store becomes completely empty. The contrast between the light and the shade in the store give an almost ghostly feel to the scene. It is important when undertaking photography in dark museum stores, to properly expose for the areas in which you want to show detail, while trying to avoid blowing out highlights and shadows. And not to get spooked!
