A little update


Originally uploaded by akkleis

Whenever I travel, I either take the wrong cameras, the wrong film, not enough film, or I try to conserve film so it will last the entire trip and come home with less than I thought I had shot. Italy wasn’t much different, but I think I learned a lot about how the angle of the sun in different lattitudes affects the amount of light at street level and that I should probably review that type of thing before I go somewhere, and stick to higher film speeds.

One irritating little piece of information I learned when I was printing some of these photos is that the Canon is leaving scratches lengthwise across the negative strip. Grrr.

I finally finished developing and scanning all the photos, and you can view the entire set here.

In other news, for the first time in two years, I don’t have any shows scheduled. There may be one or two this summer that pop up, and I have a few submissions into juried shows that I’m still waiting to hear about, but I might take a little break and focus on creating some new work. There are a few things I want to try in the darkroom, but it will be a few months before I’m ready to show it. Thanks to all of you who have come out to see my work so much in the past few years!!

Unrelated, I ran the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler on Sunday for the fifth time and took 23 minutes off the last time I actually finished it in 2007. (I was unable to finish in 2008 and 2009 due to a muscle tear injury). Official time was 2:04! And, I’m registered for the Marine Corps Marathon, again.

See ya!


Update: I’ll have a piece in ArtDC’s 12×12 show in May. More details to come….
