It's not everyday that I hustle to get to the studio early...I'm really not a morning person. At all.
But I'm trying to take pictures of everything I make (and then send far, far away to stores across the country), and I know from experience that the light--the best light--for product photos is on the early side. So I got in to the studio this morning, and almost immediately started taking pics of the brag books I finished up last night. Coming soon to a few select stores, and my etsy shop.
See the difference? The top one was before 11am....the bottom one was later in the afternoon, when I remembered that I should take a group shot as well!
May Day Studio is a bookbinding and letterpress printing studio in Montpelier, Vermont. I envision the day when all correspondence will be letterpressed, and all journals will be one-of-a-kind. May Day Studio’s letterpress visions are achieved with handset type, original papers from handcarved linoleum blocks, and a small army of antique printing presses. We like to think that it's the unique intersection of new and old, skill and craft that makes May Day Studio stand out in the crowd of cookie-cutter design.
