Working

April 16th, 2008

D20 0574 Working I’m staying pretty busy trying to get everything done that needs to be done before I leave for New York next week. Today a good bit of my time was spent editing my last shoot with Theda. I’ll be working with her again while I’m in the city…I always try to arrange a shoot with Theda when I go to NYC…and I wanted to give her a disk with my selections from the last shoot when I see her again.

I’m about a year and half behind on editing things I’ve shot. I like to let the photos sit for a while after I shoot them so I can be more objective when I edit, but I’ve been so busy and shooting so much that I never seem to get the time to do all the editing. Often I’ll do a quick look and pick one or two favorites, but then it may be months or even years before I go back and do a thorough edit. Maybe I just need to manage my time better.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to editing my recent dance photos and putting together a portfolio of those to take with me to NYC. I’ve contacted Lois Greenfield and hope to stop by one day while I’m there and visit with her again. I’d like to be able to show her what I’ve been doing with dance at Ohio University since I saw her in December.

The photo, of course, is Theda in her apartment. Last time we shot at night. I also made it an exercise in using my 50mm f/1.4, limiting myself to just that one lens for the entire shoot. I worked with available light…using the photojournalist definition “any light that is available.” This trip I plan to shoot there again with daylight from the windows to get a very different look and use some different lenses for more flexibility in the space.
