Opening night is over but the show must go on!

The opening night for my show at Thistle Hall was a great success with standing room only a couple of points and a fair amount of purchasing! Not bad for my first show in 15 years...  I was too busy talking and dealin' to get any real shots of the crowd, but I did get some video on my new Kodak Zi8 cam so I'll post that later on. In the meantime here's a link to some shots of the gallery for those that can't make it... the show is still on and open until Sunday May 2nd, so you still got time to check it out.

Book sample images

Here's some quick snaps of how the book turned out... The myCanvas people have a really good web-based interface for putting together books and partner with Smugmug. I didn't need to upload anything to put this together. The print quality is fantastic too... click on the images below for a larger view:


Stages of a Photographer

This is all over the interwebs now of course but it tickles me senseless. Take a look and see if you can figure out where you're at. I'm trying to avoid gearfaggotry but I just LOVE technology... although I've started to think about old film cameras lately...


This came from DataVis I think originally. Well worth a look for other infographics.

Hipstamatic iPhone app

I played over the weekend with the Hipstamatic iPhone app... taking throw away snaps while on trips etc... it's making me wish I could view the world through the fog of a plastic lens and some outdated film! I'm having a lot of fun exploring the different lens and film and flash combinations... I highly recommend it if you have an iPhone and NZ$2.59 to spend:

Exhibition Poster

I finished the poster for the exhibition last night... now I just gotta get it printed... it kinda came out looking like a movie poster I think ;-)  The infrared book I made with came in the mail too and looks stunning... I'll post some preview pictures from that in the coming days.

Well we went and got ourselves another Visual Effects Oscar yesterday for a Avatar. That's fantastic! Nothing can go everyone's way though. Maybe some people feel a little left out? Maybe not? Whatever happened there, THIS is too funny not to share:

Exhibition Flyer

ok the exhibition flyer just went off to the printers and will come back in a few days... then I can start distributing it and then also mail out invites for the opening... take a look:

It's reminiscent of the book cover with a few differences... and I'll probably use this sort of design for the poster too.

I've also finished the book and ordered a couple to see how they come out... I'm considering offering a smaller version at the show.

Next it's time to investigate framing options that don't bankrupt me... ;-)
