Eating and drinking is definitely on the list of things to be done in NOLA. You can get recommendations on everything from coffee to cocktails. New Orleans is also a good place to see things. There are all kinds of tours to take, from the usual sightseeing to haunted tours. I took a tour that sort of combined the two.Read More
I spent a few days on vacation in New Orleans. Now that I'm back home, I know that's not nearly enough time.Read More
I've picked up working on my InStudio project again. I've been talking to a few people, and I hope I'll be able to shoot a few more in the next few weeks.
The latest artist to allow me to take photographs in his studio is David Landis. He creates these amazing large scale sculptures from metal, cement and stone.Read More
Last month I went to the Slow Exposures
photo festival in Pike County, Georgia. It was the second year I
attended. I almost didn't go. There is a juried exhibition, which I
didn't get into this year, and the prospect of going and not showing
something didn't appeal to me when I first got the email notification.
But when I got the rejection letter, one of the organizers had added a
handwritten note, saying she hoped I came anyway. I had a good time last
year, so I decided to go anyway.
I've been doing some virtual moving around lately. I recently had the chance to meet some people who are well-respected and experienced in photography. They gave me some suggestions and feedback about how I've been presenting my work that I decided I needed to follow as soon as possible. So, I'm separating my art and documentary photography from the photography that I'd do for clients, like portraits and events.
I should have been doing this all along. My original thought was that "someday" I'll have enough work, or I'd be doing enough business work to justify maintaining separate sites.
Looks like "someday" is now.
