A Rare Rare Sight

In Melbourne these days anyways.

Under Graduate Photography Exhibitions

This is the time of year, where many of the major art schools around Melbourne have there under graduate exhibitions. The RMIT Fine Art Photography Graduate Exhibition is on at Red Gallery Contemporary Art Space, 157 St. Georges Rd. Nth. Fitzroy until the 1st of December, I highly recommend it. Gallery Hours are Tuesday to Saturday 12-6pm. Red Gallery's phone number 9482 3550.

Slide Show Feature

Blogger has just added a neat little slide show feature that allows you to run a slide show in the sidebar of your blog, all you need is an account with someone like flickr or paint-bucket or picassa, and away you go.

Bureaucratic Overload

It's that time of year where contemplating photography takes a back seat over other issues, like results and forward planning. I have however been thinking about, a matrix of sorts that shows the similarities between Digital photography processing and Analogue Photography processing.

The Week in Lo-Fi

Another weekend ends another week in Lo-Fi concludes

This project, has been going now for 25 weeks, the challenge, each week pick only 7 photos from the preceding week and upload them to facebook.

This week in particular proved difficult, as I went out on my day off specifically to make images with a specific location in Melbourne in mind. Not to mention a brief trip out into the Victorian countryside on the weekend just gone. I think I got lucky, the light was good for this time of year in Australia, but the choices were far, far too many.

Online Photo editing

Picnik, an online Photo Editor I seem to remember dabbling with in some time back is now offering pro services.

Now Picnik offers 26 effects, 5 frames, a totally new touch-ups section, and nearly 200 fonts and shapes! We've added Facebook, Photobucket and Webshots to the list of sites you can open, save and share to, and our integration with Flickr is about to get a whole lot better (stay tuned!).

The move to online application use marches forever forward, will the state of broadband in Australia, however improve enough to make this idea feasible?

Interview

I mentioned a week or so ago, an interview I gave to ABC online, the interview is now on their Daylesford Foto-Biennale site.

At some point I'll, write a bit about some of the shows I've seen. There is so much to see it's not funny, and of course as always a fabulous display of what current practitioners are doing.

Triumphant Return

I'm back! After a dead laptop, and a weekend away at the Daylesford Foto-Biennale, things are almost back in shape.

Even though I don't have a built in DVD burner on my laptop, I've been able to retreive most software, that had no install disk, and all my documents made prior to December.

I've got to confess the excercise was the least painful of my entire geek existence thanks to the cd roms mainly and perhaps experience, plenty of printed serial numbers and a book of username password cominations.

Sadly I lost a handful of digital photos, whci is kind of ironic in a way, in my 20 + years of making images I lost 2 or 3 negs. I actually don't know how many digita photos I've lost, but suffice to say, my entire current project is still safe.

This weeeknd I'm hoping to re-visit Daylesford, at least for 1 day, and catch some more of the excellent work on show up there.

D.I.Y

Here's an example of the D.I.Y ethic I've talked about in previous posts.

Flickr, the Evolution...

Well at, well over 2 years down the track on Flickr, I've begun to notice a change in how I use the service. These days it seems to be all about muckin' around with other flickr users in the DBOLRL pool, a place where smart alek's get together and cast meaningless votes on images made with low rez image capture devices

What I'm doing nowadays is uploading an image or two, making them "private" and once it has been through the grist of DBOLRL opening it up to public scrutiny

A far cry from my early days where I my mindset was coming from some other angle... what I actually can't remember. Still it's all good clean fun and who knows maybe, someone in the future will find these cyber-footprints of mine amusing or enlightening.

Strangeness?

While researching some idea for titles for my solo show in March, I noticed that my own set for the show, ranks number 10 in the google listings, yesterday anyways.

What a pleasant surprise. Hope it helps with the publicity?

Exhibition Dates

A correction.

Sitting here at home today, designing my catalogue for my solo show, 'Across the River Styx' I realised I originally posted the wrong dates.

The correct dates are:-
21st of March, to the 7th of April 2007.
Trocadero Art Space, Level 1, 119 Hopkins St,
Footscray,
9687 6110

Opening night is the 24th of March.

Once I have completely finished the catalogue, I will upload a pdf file for either of my readers, who might like to see it.

Street Photography

'E'

Yesterday I started to ramble on a little about the image I made using all I had at the time, I think I wanted to philosophise a little about that, but neglected to do so, and today I'm focused on re-scanning 7 images for the Solo show which opens on the 21st of March at Trocadero*. Today I've uploaded another image, taken this way, and again this image is made for similar reasons, it was the only device I had at the time and the characteristics of it suited the image. I wanted to exploit the features of the device and have an incredible amount of DOF. Capturing the objects themselves and the reflection across the street was the catalyst for this. Which I hope in turn says something about shopping, consumerism, light, photography, and representations of the human form... as well as ideas of beauty.

*Across the River Styx, opens at Trocadero Art Space, Level 1 119 Hopkins St Footscray on the 21st of March 2007 and runs until, the 30th of March.
