I wanted to capture the saturated and beautiful colours you get in stained glass with this shoot but I also wanted to show some of the surface detail as well, the leading and soldered joints, as this adds interest and texture.

Essentially it’s a HDR image created in Photoshop by blending several exposures together to show the detail on the face of the panel without losing the qualities of the back-lit glass.

All the panels were shot in the studio apart from the vintage car panel which is huge, and heavy! 1.5 meters square to be precise, this was shot in the makers workshop at Ketton Stained Glass in Hadstock in-between Cambridge and Saffron Walden.
