We recently took on university student Katherine McDougall for a month’s worth of photography experience here at Dents HQ. Having just finished her first year of Photography at Falmouth University, this opportunity was a great way to spend her summer break.
Here’s a Q&A with Katherine…
What have you been up to?
I have mostly been photographing the extensive collection of gloves and artifacts from the Dents Museum, and then editing the images, ready for documentation. Several images needed to be taken for each glove, to record the detailing and labeling. I also helped take images of products for the Dents website.
What have you learnt?
I’ve learnt about the company and lots about product photography. My time here has helped me gain a futher understanding of compositions and editing, which I can take into future jobs.
Favourite part of your experience here at Dents?
The best part has been learning about product photography. I also enjoyed gaining experience in working for a company, which will help my career.
Any unusual pieces in the museum glove collection?
My favourite pieces were the miniature gloves from the Victorian era, which were used to show craftsmanship at such a small scale.
