Monthly reflections – October 2014

Decided to write some monthly reflections, help me track my progress as a photographer and keep followers posted…

Excited about my photo exhibit coming up, looks like mid-November to mid-December. I have picked up the framed photos from Michael’s and they look really good, if I say so myself. Had to decide on pricing, and went with $150 per framed photo (12″x 18″ photo, 18″ x 24″ framed), based on cost of printing and framing, their 30% cut, and wanting to make a little profit on them… They accepted my Artist Statement (tee hee…) Finalizing details on exhibit dates and reception then I’ll start inviting everyone…

Tried out for the Ann Arbor Art Center All Media Exhibit with two photos:

Timing was such that if I waited until I was selected I wouldn’t have time to get them framed by their deadline, so I went ahead and got them framed and then learned I didn’t get in… Can’t feel bad, there were over 140 applications! Oh well, they’re ready to go for a future exhibit and so far I have spent less in framing than I have made in stock photography this year, so eating into profits but not going into debt…

I am in the process of applying for another exhibit at the local botanical garden, have printed the photos but I think I can wait until I learn if I’m in before I have to invest in framing them…

The logo photos project is an unqualified success! Significant sales, have taken many other photos that I have yet to processed, been too busy with other things to take more, but itching to get back out there, gotta make time around day job and personal time… That should keep me busy during the winter months…

I’m considering getting a new lens,  maybe a 35 mm or a 50 mm, I really can’t make up my mind… Likely ’cause I’m not totally sure whether to prioritize portraits or street photography, know I’d like to take indoor shots that let in more light… This article has some ideas. Any suggestions?

That’s it for October. Need to make more time for photography, trying to prioritize so many things, life is so short…
