Josef Camblin is a painter and I have worked with Joe for a number of years. Periodically he tracks me down and brings a collection of his paintings over to the studio for photographing. Oil paintings, particularly those post-glaze, are very difficult to reproduce faithfully. The process involves a tricky balance of removing as much light as possible to avoid sheen, whilst providing enough ambient light to saturate the colours and pull out texture. Joe's paintings are as fascinating as the man himself in their subject range and I am in awe of the intricate details and intensity of brush strokes. I always enjoy our chat.
