Week 31, Day 222, December 1, 2009, "Getting Ready for the Show"


I have some exciting news.  On December 12, 2009 from 2:00-5:00 PM. there is going to be an opening at the Thou Art Gallery in Groton, and Nancy is going to be showing some of my work.

Nancy's a great person who has encouraged me to show some of my work. 

I'm not a great salesperson, so I'm just going to say it.  These items will be for sale, including note cards, photograph, and calendars.

If you're in the area please stop by.  It's a really cool shop with lots of local artist work.  Everytime I go into the shop it looks different with new items, and Nancy's a lot of fun to talk with.  She knows a lot about local artists, and has fantastic work of her own.

Lessons Learned:
  • It can be fun to stage a shot.
  • I've continued to play with the Tilt-Shift photography that I mentioned yesterday.  I posted one on my other blog.  It's a photo that I took when we were in Rome in 2005, so I couldn't use it as a photo-of-the-day.  I learned about what types of photos work, and what types of photos don't work for this technique.
  • It's really hard to stand still for 4 seconds.
Photo details: Exposure time 4 sec, Aperture f/9.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 17 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 29mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.

Steve - I do hope the 12th opening is successful. I will do my best to make sure people down here know about it. I am, though, unsure if I can make it. I am running my first race that afternoon in Seneca Falls. Start time is 4:30 so maybe.

Hey, you have a pool table at home?

Thank you for the great comments.

Nicki, That's great, I hope you have a lot of fun at the race. People are so supportive and encouraging at races. It's a great incentive to keep running.

Gary, It belongs to the kids. The cool part is that it also has a ping pong table top as well. I like ping pong even more than pool.
