Two Projects

Today, I have begun the ball rolling for two projects, an application for a PhD, and a show at the CCP. The show application, will focus on a body of work, I shot recently and may form a larger project, over time; one day a book I hope. The PhD, is at such an early developmental stage, I am reading a book that will help me decide where to go., the book is entitled, The Craft of Research. It has already proved to be a great help.

Melbourne Photograph Art Scene in the 80's

I am currently putting together a selection of work for the online publication 'Second Nature', published by RMIT. Part of the process requires I write an artist's statement, which I am in the process of writing. Part of my statement, refers to a time in Melbourne, if not Australia, somewhere in the 80's, where Artists, were beginning to question the nature of the photographic 'document'. Given that this is pre-web, I'm not having a great deal of luck finding much online. I do know the CCP published several postcards, one in particular, by Janina Green. The image's title from memory was something like, 'Northcote Baths, Melbourne [with a date]. I putting it out there does anyone from my readership, if your still hanging around here, have one of these postcards? If they do and know my contact details, could they contact me or, leave a comment. Thanks in advance.

Organising My Archives

archive lablels

Getting organised for the collection of Broadcast Media, using my eyeTV, and g5, I decided my archived CDs needed re-organising, it turns out I've been using a digital camera of some shape or form since 1999, 10 years folks, 10 years! I've been scanning longer of course, but as negatives, they need not be archived via CD. If you count 1998 as my start year in serious photography, this means over half of my time making images have been spent using a digital camera!

Of course 1/2 way though 2008, I got my 'DET leased' laptop that actually has a DVD burner, so that'll slow things down.

Not sure where external drives are going to fit into the equation, nor 'the cloud'.

Lightroom

As part of my ongoing investigations regarding professional image editing software, and as a PD commitment, I've been working with Lightroom over the holidays, and let me say as a photographic editing tool it is very good. A no nonsense digital darkroom, I'm still not convinced however that the Asset management side of things is going to work as well as it could? Because I've been using Expression Media for so long now, we'll see, for the time being I guess I'll have to use both, systems to compare, thank god hard disks are so cheap these days.

These first four of five screens, will be a great class starter this year.

Everything a digital photographer could need is here, with no extra bells and whistles to slow down the learning process or the workflow.

Photoshop CS3!

Photoshop CS3's default interface

Photoshop CS 3 is now available in beta!

More learning is just around the corner, so I can keep my photoshop workshops current.

Edit. So I tried my CS Licence number and hey presto that doesn't work so it looks like I get a peek at it for a grand total of two days!

21st Century Publishing

So Schmaps an online travel directory service has used some of my images for their travel guide of Melbourne.

I have mixed feelings about this, but I put my images online with a licence that permitted it, so I guess I'll have to wear it?

What kind of badge is this?

For either of you who care, I've linked to the the images they used on their download-able guide below, I'm on a Mac as you both know and the download-able guide won't be ready for some time so I can't link to them in any way on the Schmap site, or even see how they look embedded in the publication.
