Damien Hirst Opal Collection - 61 Opals 715 carats


We were lucky to work with Damien Hirst on a Opal photographic project. He wanted a photo of a range of opal in a large group which he could work from and sell at later dates.


I collated 61 opals weighting in around 715 carats of all different colours, patterns and grades. These were placed at random to produce the layout in the video then photographed with a Hasselblad H4D with a single light source. This was then ran through CS6 with very little edit than getting the black background clean and tidy.


Opals can be viewed by appointment only.
