  1. So many things, so little time

    by , 04-23-2010 at 08:04 PM
    I've been home from work sick with a cold the last couple days. I've been using the downtime to catch up on some reading - I'm working my way through a book of photographic theory, and reading the WONDERFUL "TruthBeauty: Pictorialism and the Photograph as Art", which is the exhibition catalog for a traveling show coming to the Taft Museum of Fine Art in Cincinnati next month. On wednesday night, I had my first session of "The Four Traditions of Photography" class at the Smithsonian. ...
  2. Art Reactor classes

    by , 04-12-2010 at 01:53 PM
    I've posted a number of classes I'm offering at Art Reactor, a community gallery/studio/workshop space in Hyattsville, Maryland that I've joined.

The classes currently on the calendar are Photographing the Male Nude, So You're Going to be in an (ART) Show!, and Introduction to Platinum/Palladium printing. I'm also curating a show of ...
  3. LTNB (LOOONG Time No Blog)

    by , 03-25-2010 at 11:04 AM
    Well, it's been ages since I've posted here, mostly because I've moved over to Facebook (dragged kicking and screaming, but now I like it alot). I went in my local camera store and picked up a deal on a Mamiya RB67 Pro-S with a back and a 180 lens. My intent was just to shoot portraits, but I took it out for a spin at doing some night shots last night. It will at least let me do color photography economically.

    DATELINE - Milton, Delaware. Wednesday, 10 FEB 2010

    The wind is blowing like nuts. It's colder than forty Hades out there. I worked until 10:30 this morning and then bolted for the homestead. Enough of this infernal white stuff. This past weekend I tried to stay ahead of the snow so there would be less to lift when it was over. This weekend the wind is doing it for me. The snow comes down at about a 75 degree angle of attack and goes thataway. Thankfully.

    So, ...

    Dateline - Milton, Delaware. Sunday, 7 FEB 2010.

    Well, the storm of this decade, or maybe the last one, depends on your school of thought I guess, social or otherwise. Nevermind. I digress.

    The East Coast of the US has just come out from under two feet of snow. Here in Milton, Delaware we have received 22" of the blessed white stuff. Maybe more. Haven't heard anything official yet. Just counted what I shovelled as I tried to stay ahead of things.
