Still Life in the Studio by Jim Sincock

I’m all settled in the home studio and I am loving it! It is so nice to walk out our back door, smell the flowers, hear the birds, and step into my studio. Short and beautiful commute! I do miss my darkroom, but I’m sure I’ll at least make a small darkroom for developing film here at our house. Heck, I had that in my studio shed back in Denver, so I can do it here too.

The home studio has nice natural light with north and east facing windows and allows me to work on small still life photos without having to setup studio lighting. The birdhouse in the photo above was found in our woods this Spring. I’m not sure how I missed it the several years we’ve lived here, but I think the previous owner made it and it must have fallen out of a tree. I love the textures and the rusty nails.

I’ve rarely done color still life over the past two decades, but I am enjoying the subtle colors in these new works.

Antique Bottle Collection Photo Series by Jim Sincock

Most who have been following my work for a long time have seen bottles from my antique bottle collection make it into my various still life photo series. My collection is fairly modest and most bottles were picked based on how they might look in one of my photographs, or the quality of light the give when I shine a studio spotlight through them.

New prints available, and other random news by Jim Sincock

I've added many new images to my print shop on Jim Sincock Photography, and still have many more to add. That site will eventually hold my entire collection of images that will be available as open edition prints. Limited edition or one-of-a-kind prints and art pieces will be available here on Interrobang.

If you've visited this site in the recent past you may recall I also had my antique & vintage business here. I've decided to keep that separate from the art & photography and reformed that business as Relic Antique & Vintage www.relicantique.com

Antique objects from my collections have long been the subject of my still life photography, and those photographs will continue. Many of my still life images are shot on traditional film, paper negatives, gelatin dry plate, and tintype (wet plate collodion.) My antique bottle photos have been popular at many of the art festivals I've done over the years and I will be offering both open edition prints and unique one-of-a-kind prints of those images soon.

Lastly, art festivals. For 2018 I have decided to stop doing art festivals and will only be selling my prints and art online or through my art studio.
