  1. New Studio

    by , 07-10-2008 at 03:18 PM
    I found a studio to share outside of my house, finally! The price isn't cheap, but it's a lot better than what I would have paid to get my own space - $380 a month, plus utilities. It is close to public transit, and it is shared with three other photographers. I'll finally be able to advertise with a business address, and I'll be able to have models in to shoot without needing to do government clearance level background checks. Now I just have to move my gear in, and convince the other photographers ...

  2. artomatic takedown

    by , 06-21-2008 at 12:51 PM
    I'm sitting here at Artomatic, doing my last volunteer shift during deinstallation. The space looks very different with half the art remaining, and little debris piles here and there where people haven't finished cleaning up. Many of the artists who haven't removed their work still have the poems written for them stuck to their walls. There is this "poet" who goes through the show every year and writes a little stanza or two for each artist's exhibit. She deserves a lot of credit for tackling ...

  3. Teaching

    by , 06-03-2008 at 07:33 AM
    The previous weekend, I did a little wet-plate demo for some interested folks at Artomatic, the big exhibit at which I've got some work hanging. Well, one of the students at my demo went back to tell his college instructor about my demo, and now I've got an invite to repeat it for the college class at Northern Virginia Community College. I might also be teaching/demo-ing platinum/palladium for them. This is really great, as it helps to redeem some of the sting from getting rejected from grad schools ...

  4. Randomness

    by , 05-26-2008 at 07:07 PM
    I went for a jaunt in the countryside today, took a drive up to Harpers Ferry. On the way home, I stopped off at an antiques mall and found a lovely 1/4 plate daguerreotype for $95. No case, but the image, the mat and the glass were all in excellent condition, with the packet still well sealed, so no major oxidation or fading. I'm going to shop around for a modern replica case for it to better protect it.

  5. Wet Plate Success

    by , 05-26-2008 at 06:39 AM
    Well, not exactly, but I did give my wet plate demo and discussion yesterday at Artomatic. I used a box brownie for the camera, and coated my plates on some black glass cut down to the brownie's size - 3 3/4 x 4 1/2. We were getting the exposure pretty close on the third plate, but I ran out of developer. The bigger success was just being able to demonstrate the process, and have an interested audience. There were six folks in all who came for the program, and all left interested in the process. ...
