I love the laid back attitude, as we wandered round the markets of Paris. Crosswords, reading and eating were the order of the day. A sale would just be a bonus.
Blurb have done a terrific job printing my book Portfolio 1. Really excited about. It will be available at our 'Parallels' Digital Exhibition held throughout October at My Brighton, My Hotel, Jubilee Street, Brighton. Part of the Brighton Photo Biennial 2016. Private View is on Thursday 29th September.
Still going through images from recent travels. It sometimes pays to leave them for a while, you see them with fresh eyes or in some cases for the first time.
This was taken in a gallery set up in a church. There were veils of chiffon hanging, so not wanting to miss an opportunity...
PARALLELS is an exciting collaboration between myself and Jerry Webb.
We are producing a projected image exhibition during the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival at MY BRIGHTON, 17 Jubilee Street. 29th Sept- 30th Oct.
Getting ready for my presentation on the 6th September at Brighton and Hove Camera Club means I have been going through quite a few photographs - and enjoying finding new images that have yet to be edited. Today I revisited the Berlin folder and found some new images from a city that never fails to inspire me.
With the FujiXT-1 the double exposure setting works like a film camera - the images have to be taken consecutively. However, unlike film cameras you can see a feint outline of the first image, then you superimpose the second. Of course the element of surprise is considerably less, but for me it's the thought process I enjoy and yes there are still some surprises when the image pops up onto the screen.
'AUTHORIZATION NEEDED TO PASTE ON WALLS' says the sign - glad we adhered to that one!
Seeking a little refuge from the heat in Arles, the Crypt below Place De La Republique offered some interesting photographic opportunities. Pitch black except for a few intermittent beams of sunlight from the square above posed a few challenges. Since I was there mainly to cool down, I wasn't holding out much hope on the photographic front. I began doing some of my double exposures that I love so much...
The RPS have featured my successful portfolio on their website:
So delighted to have 'Still and Sparkling' shortlisted for the International Print Exhibition 2016. Fingers crossed it will go all the way!
The countdown has begun. One more week to wait before we leave for Arles' Photographic Festival. Last year was so amazing and inspirational, I cannot wait to see what is in store for us this year.
Fingers crossed I have successfully ironed out the social media glitches on my website and you will now have access to my blog.
It was requested that I post my Hanging Plan for my portfolio. So here it is.
With regards to the Hanging Plan, my idea of having 4 rows of 5 went out of the window as there is a max of 3 rows allowed. This format - 9 and 11 worked well for me, allowing 2 central images.
