Fine Woodworking editors are in charge of the whole process of creating an article, which means they are not only editing the text, but they also manage and process the photos. This enables the staff to get a close and personal look at craftsmen’s work, and documenting it becomes a craft in itself. The more effort you put into photoshoots, the more you appreciate the work and consideration put into woodworking. Skill of woodworkers is often appreciated, but the care and patience they have while working can only be fully understood during the photo-shoot and it is something that photos often do not capture.
- Fine Woodworking editors work on both the article and the photos, allowing them to have a good grasp of the whole story.
- Photoshoots normally follow the making of one piece from start to finish.
- Some of the best points in that process are the slow times, but they don’t make good photos.
“The moments where our authors stop and slow down have been some of the most educational for me. Sadly, they also make for lousy photos.”
