It’s been way too long since I have posted here. I thought I’d start up again with an image of my new obsession-paper planners! Back in high school and college, I heavily relied on my paper planners, but then the age of technology was upon us and in 2001 I purchased a Palm Pilot and never looked back at those old calendars. I have since upgraded to an iPhone, but recently the paper lover in me has decided to go back to analog! I am currently using a downloadable planner but am chomping at the bit to order an Inkwell Press Planner, which does not go on sale until next month. I wanted to check out some planner stickers though, so I ordered a few from The Reset Girl and she does not disappoint! I love them & can’t wait to get my new planner so I can start using them (and who are we kidding, I’m sure I’ll order more then too!)
Here’s a shot of my new toys! Enjoy!
This weekend I was in Denver, CO to attend the Sandy Puc Hands On Tour. I was able to learn more about portrait photography and practice new techniques in natural light, studio strobe lighting, posing and we even put a model in the pool and illuminated her only with flashlights. It was a great learning experience and I can’t wait to put my new skills into practice.
I have collected favorite quotes for many years, I just saw this one today and it resonated with me, so I wanted to share it. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to see Robert Frank’s exhibition of his collection of photographs called “The Americans” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York a few years ago. I am by no means any kind of expert art critique but I loved the exhibit and his stories behind the photos. Here is a story on NPR about how Frank’s work changed photography: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=100688154
”There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough – there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.” – Robert Frank
