LADIG welcomes Avi Roth to talk to us about photographing jewelry at our next meeting on Wednesday, August 14. Avi would also like to talk about his transition from film to digital photography, and how it has affected his work.
Avi says, “Every photograph is a story written with light he comments. “Like a story without words, it evolves from a concept, thought or emotion in my mind’s eye into a latent image a silhouette of shapes and forms. This shadowless three-dimensional space is the genesis of my artistic interpretation. I use my personal ‘palette’ of light to create shadow, color and space, and blend backgrounds to complete my visual composition.”
Roth’s work include countless photographs and photo-illustrations and ranges from advertising to fine art, single product, to complex sets and single models to large crowds. His work has appeared in many prominent publications including Vogue Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Martha Stewart Weddings, Los Angeles Weddings, Architectural Digest, and others. Avi Roth has been the recipient of numerous awards often from clients who have recognized his professional virtuosity and fascination with elegance.
