We call it the garage, but it is really a multipurpose workshop: shop, garage, and workspace. After he retired, my dad used the garage to refurbish vintage tractors and trucks. When I returned to the farm, I rediscovered the garage as a photography space. As I spent time rummaging through the shelves of parts, bins of tools, automobile paints, and nuts and bolts, I became enchanted with the space.
With three west-facing windows and ample room to set up still lifes, I found the light produced effects of textures and colors that I could find nowhere else.
