Artist's Description

A red hot sword pommel in the making…like the sun fresh from the furnace placed on the anvil.
One of the moments captured in the smithy during the process of forging a medieval sword.
Thanks so much Wout & Jelmer of Hammer Las & Smeed Techniek Kampen for hospitality and coop during the photo shoot. It was ab fab day!
About the series: what I wanted to achieve:
- making a series of photographs of the blacksmiths working on the creation of a sword.
- Using the light from fire in the furnace and lights provided in the smithy, no flash.
- trying to get the best possible effects, movements, poses expressed
- make a resume finding out what worked well and what was a problem plus, most important how it can be improved. Et voilà a new learning project is started.
Shot straight from camera on tripod without flash.
Equipment: Eyes, hands, mind, soul, Canon Eos 30D
