Photographing Combs

I am working with lights, a friend’s instructions, flashes, oh my God there is so much to think about… :-) Here are four comb pictures from my collection. The first is a Chinese ivory export comb for the Victorian market, c. 1890. The second is a Chinese hair stick with a blonde shell bird on top. Last is a Japanese Meiji ivory set in perfect condition, which depicts flowers blowing in the wind. Enjoy!

    Srsly, send them on. I’ll be happy to help. But I am really really learning. The photographer for the Creative Museum is bringing comb photography to new levels. I am in awe.
