    Daily Photo - Chihuly is Awesome

    I've always admired the artist Dale Chihuly. He makes the most outrageous and colorful art in the world. I'd love to learn to blow glass. I saw a great documentary on him in high def about a show he did in Venice... they made all sorts of beautiful things and hung them over the canals. I wish I was there to photograph it! Personally, I think the best way to properly capture the light in these images is with HDR techniques. Other methods of shooting these awesome pieces always come up a bit short, at least, to me.

    I shot this a few weeks ago at his new gallery in Las Vegas right in the middle of City Center, which you can see in the background. This is just one shot of many, and I have a lot more jewels from Chihuly to come!

      Fantastic shot. Chihuly is awesome, he did a wonderful display at the Missouri Botanical Gardens a few years ago which I enjoyed.
