I really need to blog more, or faster. Before I could get a post up about my second day of vacation, I find that I need to take an “Interlude” here to tell you about last week’s ArtHop™!
This past week, in addition to the fact that I had my own exhibit at Fresno’s downtown Citibank, I again entered a juried competition at the Sorensen Studio.
Since I already wrote about the works I entered at the Sorensen, I won’t rehash that here; this post is really just to announce that I won Third Place in Photography for my daytime shot of the Centerville Fruit Stand.
If you’re in Fresno, the show at the Sorensen will still be going on during the month of October. Pop on in and check out not just my work, but the great work of several others artists! (The Best of Show is an incredible sculpted piece!)
Well, I have a couple of model shoots this weekend, so not really time to say much more here today. I have a few pictures I want to write about, but that’s going to have to wait until later. With the new studio, plus my regular business, there’s a lot happening right now. Keeping up is a challenge, but fun.
Check back later for more!
This website, I think, is about to undergo another makeover. If you’ve paid any attention to me — and my infrequent blogging probably does not encourage that — you know that I keep re-designing the website. There are reasons for that which go beyond “I don’t seem to be able to find something I really like.”
I’ve been trying to transition from being, as one photography vendor once called me, “an enthusiast,” to being more of a professional photographer. (The vendor said that as a compliment. I had referred to myself as an “amateur” in terms of my skill level at that time. The vendor stated that I was far from an amateur, but since I was only selling my prints “in addition to” my non-photography day-job, he used “enthusiast” to describe me.)
As I make this transition, I’m submitting some of my work to juried competitions.
My latest such effort resulted in the black-and-white version of my “Calm Beneath the Storm” winning second place in the Landscapes category at the Sorensen Studio. [Read more…]
