I have always been infatuated with neon lights. The color, the energy, the way the tubes are twisted and folded, they always seem to grab my attention. The goal of this series is to showcase neon lights as a storytelling device by highlighting not just the tubes themselves, but the environments they inhabit.
This is just a quick showcase of my ability to set up and create professional-level product photography. For most of the pictures, I have included a setup shot as well as the final shot so you can see the process I went through and some of the equipment I'm used to using. Also, I'm from Corning, so you know I have to photograph some glass.
Here is a small selection of some portraits I've done over the past couple years, both in studio and environmental.
Rather than showcasing the environments the neon lights are in, Neon Energy attempts to shine a spotlight on the formal qualities that make neon lights so engaging: color, contrast, and form.
