The tricky part of photographing light fixtures is keeping yourself from showing up in the reflection when it has a polished finish.  I’m going through somewhere around 50 antiques at work today for a new category that we’re hoping to have launched on our website by the end of the week.  Some of them date back as far as year 1800 and we’ve got some really cool ones lying around.  You really begin to appreciate them a lot more once you start paying attention to the detail.  It seems like I’m always doing something new here… it keeps things interesting.

Update: If you want to take a look at the end result, please check out the Antique & Architectural Salvage Lighting section at Grand Light.  The particular fixture you see pictured above is a Colonial Revival Style 4 Arm Chandelier.
