As we reach the end of another year, which seems to have gone by too fast, I thought I would reflect on some of my things photographically from the past 12 months. I discussed many of these in detail on previous posts and hope you'll look back on those for details and links.
I travelled, not for a class, for the first time specifically to create photographs. I made some terrific work as well as contacts, which I hope will result in some interesting photographs soon. I continued with the body abstractions which I showed in a number of locations. The feedback was terrific and these exhibits led to some fascinating discussion. The Junebug ArtFest and Eat, Drink, and Buy Art were fun again. Although there weren't many direct sales, they resulted in immediate or future possibilities, including a few headshot sessions. One of these was with a fellow commuter who has bad experiences with photo sessions in the past and was happy enough with the experience to recommend me to friends. I attended another class at the Maine Media Workshops which added skills to my toolbox which has helped with these headshot sessions. I am now in the process of preparing prints for a local exhibit which hangs in January. I am also waiting to hear from a submission I made in October for possible publication. I also continued to document local events including monthly Open Mic Nights.
I returned to photographing portraits, clothing, and jewelry. This has been fun and is something I will continue to explore along with more of the study of the body abstractions.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season, whatever you celebrate, and a great beginning to 2016.
