Statue Photography

Let's see your statues! It's a new interest of mine and I've just captured some that I'm extremely proud of. Here are mine:

Note: The memorial statue is from a graveyard, it's very old and there is no way for me to determine the artist.

i never shoot them because i don't know how old they are, since they belong to another artist. and unless i have their permission i can't post them because i could be sued by them, it would be no different then shooting some else's photo and displaying it. plus you get the sculpture people on this site all upset if the statue maker's name isn't listed.

To all, that are presenting their photographs of someone else's artwork, in this case sculpture, please give credit to those that created those pieces originally...I'm sure you're not too happy with those that use your photographs without authorization....Just give a little credit please.

Since I live in an historic town, I have photographs of old statues. I did have a couple of the Immigrant Statue but deleted them. It is fairly new statue so I thought it was better to be safe. People, especially tourists photograph these sites all the time. I tried to put my own perspective on each scene.

@ Mike - hogwash - I see pictures of statues sold all the time - used to be mostly on postcards - but I doubt the sculptor ever had a say about it being sold.

I am fairly certain however that if you try to copy, or do copy the piece of sculpture and claim it as your work - yes - you really might have a problem.

The guy who sculpted this image is dead so I don't think he is going to sue me. And why bother suing me? They would have to get a lawyer, etc, take me to court, etc etc....To date no one has the good taste to buy this image. And what kind of profit would I make? $30.00....ho hum...

I would credit the artists but these statues don't have names attached to them.... these are statues that I found in antique stores, nurseries, or parks. There's no way I can know who created them and thus no way for me to credit them. Plus, if I take the photograph, edit, and manipulate them then it becomes my art, not theirs.

Marble statue of St.Paul the Hermit, 1772, by Andrea Bergondi, Italian, 1722-89

The photograph of the statue of St. Paul is just beautiful. I love the lighting and the drama captured in that piece.

All of these are wonderful! Not sure why photographing statues has recently become an interest of mine.... of all the things to photograph this is suddenly becoming more and more important to me. I think I've done enough flowers and nature shots in general. Time to try a new study!

Kylani: Not sure in your area but check out some of the older cemeteries. Here in Nashville we have a wonderful cemetery Mt. Olivet with wonderful older monuments, sculptures, head stones and mausoleums.

Cemeteries are filled with the beautiful work of so many unsung artists. Like you, Kylani, and the others artists above, I try to make my take on a statue something new.

I don't know why but I like to take pictures of statues. They are always ready and patient. I especially like carved marble statues.

Steven, that's why I named some of my statue photos "The Weeping Angel" and "Don't Blink" :)

Janice,

A major contributor to your fine photo was Cyrus Dallin, the Sculptor

Hello Kylani, congrats are you new interest in statues, it is a different challenge because of actual location, lighting, and either if you use black and white or color. I personally like the older statues because of detailed weathered appearance. Your new photos of statues are very beautiful, the composition, lighting, and subject. Cheers, Michael

I think the best way to comprehend a statue is to sculpted one . I make many statues and photographs each one and the best satisfaction is see that photo after a long period of a hard work. Is amazing.

@ Michael: Thank you for the kind response Michael. I had some fun creating the composition and learning my way around by editing. The whole thing was originally done as a 3D stereo image but I don't usually post those because I doubt many people can view them properly. When I do post them, it's rare that anyone lets me know they can view them properly. I need a little feedback but rarely get it. The last image I sold was a 3D image however, and I know there is a 3D community "out there" that is interested. I just wish FAA was interested in that fact.
