    Louisville Glassworks

    I visited a glass work shop a few days ago. I thought I would share a few images - not because they are works of art, but because they are so unusual! I have lots more, but thought these few were the most interesting

    These guys were laying some glass on a piece they were working on - sorry I don't know the correct terminology!

    This guy was amazing - he was making a glass sculpture on commission.

    Another one just because it was so cool.

    Good stuff.

    ....not because they are works of art...
    Maybe not, but they are very powerful and good quality documentary images. If you got regular access to that location you could build up quite a portfolio and have a pictorial story of life in the workshop.

    I hadn't thought of it that way Donald.

    Thanks Richard. I have to give some credit to they guy doing something amazing while I photographed him, AND to my new lens I got for Christmas, it is wonderfully sharp and focuses accurate nearly every time (efs 17-55).
    It was really awesome watching that guy work (Mark Payton).

    Not to take anything away from you as a photographer but, the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens is a super glass for this (any for just about any other type) type of shooting. Good glass in front of an accomplished photographer like you is an unbeatable combination.

    I don't carry my 50mm f/1.8 Mark-I lens anymore since the 17-55mm performs better in low light than the 50mm because it focuses faster and more accurately and has the IS assistance.

    Congratulations on your new lens... Happy shooting!

    Richard,
    Thank you for the complimentary words, though I think you are being too generous
    I laughed when I read your comment about the 50 1.8 - I have the mark II version and have been thinking about leaving it at home lately! I normally tried to use it at f4.0 or higher anyway because of its focusing issues, so I have actually gained a stop of light with the new lens, and the bokeh is much nicer too

    Nices pics, Brian. To edit title, I believe you shoudl choose to edit your first post, select "go advanced", then you'll see the field called "title" and can change that.

    Happy New Year!

    Thanks Chris, I tried that and while it did change the title of the first post, it did not change the thread title.

    I know that if people just use the + Reply to Thread, or reply to posts (with Typo) part way through the thread, it'll take the last post's title, or the one they reply to, reintroducing the error.

    OK, I changed the spelling in every post in the thread, but even so, I am not sure it will fix it in the Latest Threads view, which seems to have a memory of its own

    Let's see what this reply does.

    UPDATE:
    OK that didn't work, so I looked further and found an Administration option to Edit the thread, and there was the error, once corrected, even Latest Threads is correct now.
    First thing learnt in 2012

    Cheers,
