"people of the cloth"
... portraits of tailors, seamstresses, dry cleaners, laundromat workers, ministers and priests ...
hopefully all 5x7, maybe 8x10 camerawork ....
what's your project ?
A project starting this week: a series for a wood compagny photographing his products and after that photographing his factory.
After that it will be quiet for a little while.... travel back to Europe and doing some camera repairs and restauration and building for my self, getting back into LF again after 2 years, testing my new Shen Hao, do some 8x10.
The local camera club is having an exhibit in September under the "abstract" theme, so I'm trying to devote some effort to shooting prospective material for that.
I'm supposed to have my own little exhibition in October, but I'm still rather stalled on a cohesive theme.
Current project; 8x10 paper neg/contact prints of our island artists
A project I've been working on for over a year: portraits of people in various groups, especially non-profits. I've shot portraits at a senior center, a homeless center, and a school for disabled artists. Last week it was a rugby team in New Zealand.

Oh, I like this. What a wonderful range of comparison and contrast you can introduce into this. Very nice idea.

The series has been presented for publication, but that has bogged down.
Moved by the Texas Church project I am starting an 8x10 series of Places of Worship, small rural buildings in my area. I am refining the idea. At this stage it includes small 19th Century buildings, churches, mausoleums, more recent temples, and even a future church building sign in a corn field. I have found a bit of whimsy that is adding to the fun. I will probably print B&W in 16x20 or 20x24. If it continues to be fun as it evolves, it too may be a multi year project.
The answer is "yes". ~gulp~ Here's how the director of the gallery describes it:
"During the months of August and September, 2009, the Hiddenite Center's Lucas Mansion Gallery will feature the photographic work of Alexander County photographers, Janet Gable Cull and E. Scott Little. For the past two years, they have put together a picture of the traditional face of Alexander County that features people, places, practices, and recurring themes that make up the image that is unique to Alexander County. Although Janet is Scott's mother-in-law (and I add, how cool is that??), their direction as photographers was well underway before they legally became family. Scott's forte is in photographing landscapes and places, while Janet's love is portraiture in capturing people in their own environment..." (reception Sunday, August 23, 3-4:30 in the Lucas Mansion Gallery)
He has a way with words. I hope the work measures up. (And when does the confidence come???)
No printing but matting and framing for a month or so. Just moved and Aaron Brothers had a sale on "buy one frame and get next for .1 penny". Just ordered some 20x24 matts from LightImpressions. I need to dust off my rusty Logan matting skills
I'm currently working on a whole plate book project along with several other photographers. Our work appeared in the May/June issue of View Camera magazine and I'm not sure when the book project is going to be completed.
I am thinking of getting a portfolio of images together from this project to submit to LensWork magazine. :o
It would be nice to get some pt/pd prints made from these images too.
