Yesterday I photographed the newly refurbished Hertford Museum. For me, this would involve a couple of areas of photography that I was interested in, specifically interiors and close object photography.
The idea was to produce a series of photos that would show both the museum and it’s exhibits.
Having just spent over £1m, the museum was in pristine condition and looking it’s best following the refurbishment that had taken over a year.
The two objects I enjoyed photographing most were the Victorian dolls’ house and the model of Hertford Castle. I was particularly pleased to be able to get right inside the dolls house and show the extraordinary detail.
Many of the exhibits were either behind glass or in perspex display cabinets. However, with careful positioning of the camera and a polarising filter I was able to eliminate most of the glare and reflections.
A gallery of the photos taken at the museum can be found on my website at stevebeeston.co.uk.
