It takes guts!
“Moxie and the Scarampella, Opus 1”
When I was working out-of-state on a separate assignment in 2015, I was asked if I could make some images of a Scarampella violin for a friend of a friend. Using bedsheets, fishing line, bar stools and other makeshift tools, I managed okay until the client came to check on me.
Did I “need anything?” “No, just time,” I thought, as I tried to learn the nuanced art of lighting this investment violin’s very shiny surface.
Yet, before I could answer “no” aloud, in darted Moxie. Her feline curiosity greeted her new precariously exposed four-stringed friend. While my heart skipped a beat, I made one or two images before quarantining Moxie in another room. .
