New (old) obsession
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!
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them”.
Schack Artist Garage Sale
I was in Snohomish yesterday for the Vintage Market at Swan’s Trail Farm – I didn’t even get out of the parking lot before I saw and had to photograph this great old car & shed. Enjoy what I saw yesterday:
Sandy Puc Hands On Tour
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.
What I’m up to this summer…
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
