Yes, I know it’s boring to clean out one’s studio but that’s exactly what I am doing today. I hope to get everything squared away so that things are more neater around here, so that I can find more stuff more easily, and so that I can start to send more work out efficiently.
A couple of upcoming events to tell you about while I am busy with the spit and polish. For starters, I’ve been invited to attend a special gallery talk tomorrow evening in downtown Austin. Now, for those of you who do not understand quite what I mean, this is going to be one of those gallery talks where we get a special program as presented by the gallery owner. So excited about this, as it’s one of my favorite galleries for fine art photography in Austin and I’m on the “short list” for invitations. Wish me luck with this one, for it’s certain to be a good time. (Luck, fun, all of that goodness and light, right?)
Next up, I know I have been meaning to do this for a while, but I really should, at some point, do a post about what’s in my camera bag. Now, I have never felt it was “telling” or all that “revealing” to talk about what’s in there-it’s basically a load of camera crap, right? But I’ve come to realize that all of these “what’s in the bag?” posts are somewhat expected of us. It seems like everybody wants to know all about what kind of gear you have all of the time (as if that’s going to help them take better pictures. Harumph!) I’ve decided to cave and do it anyway. Grumble if you must, but I too will fall victim to this “what’s in the bag?” mentality and, yes, finally reveal all the crap that’s in there. In case, you know, in case you were curious or something.
After shooting on the beach, I’d have to honestly admit, at this point, a wee little bit of sand is in there and that, my friends, is never a good thing. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll have to clean that out too, since I’m in this crazy cleaning mood today anyway. (Look for the What’s in My Bag? post coming soon! …To a blog near you. All of that and probably some upcoming notes from tomorrow’s gallery visit, I’ll be sure to post that as soon as I can for you as well.)
Until next time…
