Today I was further aknowledged as a photographer by reading that the book I had submitted an image to, is even closer to publication.
Artist Jeffrey Macklin is the person responsible for this project. Todays email revealed that the opening party for the anthology project will be held on Sept. 6 at Market Hall in Peterborough. If you are inspired to support this worthy cause and purchase a book, they will be available at the opening.
They will also be available on Sept. 12 at the Circus Shoppe, 481 Aylmer street during the MAIN EVENT. The event will include readings from the anthology by local celebrities as well as musical talent entertaining the crowd.
If you are a frequent visitor to the Wed. farmer's market in Peterborough, you are encouraged to visit the table carrying Artsweek materials and of course purchase a copy of the anthology.
Be sure to watch for posters around town with details of the events.
Here is the image that I created that will be included in the Neighbourhood Anthology
Many thanks to Jeffrey Maklin for this opportunity and Claire Hogenkamp for kicking me in the butt.
Being nervous about shooting #portraits on location is a totally normal experience, so I'm not surprised that that is how I felt.
I mean, normally I spend time photographing objects, interesting views, street scenes etc. Not humans. (well except for my 3 year old daughter)
The shoots to about 30 mins each and were both done indoors, so I had to deal with mixed lighting. The #Nikon D90 seemed to handle both situations very well and what little bit of post production work I did in Adobe Photoshop masked any goofs just as easily.
I submitted my images to the creator of the project and she was delighted. Next month there will be a show in Peterborough where the printed and framed images will be on display for the entire community to enjoy. I have yet to see any of the work by the other photographers. The show should be highly enjoyable and eye opening.
Different interpretations are always interesting, so I'm looking forward to attending the opening. Below is one of the images I created for the project. Stay tuned for scheduling for the show, and please be sure to stop by if you are in town.
