Lucky Three

Elliott Smith died six years ago, today.  This is a nice little short film portrait of Elliott by Jem Cohen.

TTV Love

Hey- look at me over on that hula girl’s blog. There’s a flickr group, too, that I’ve just become aware of, for my TTV (through the viewfinder) class.  Check out the lovely photos that other people took.  I will upload all of my pictures soon..  Photoshop has decided to die on my computer, so I’m not getting all the editing done that I want to.  Hopefully a re-installation will bring it back to life and bring me back to work.

Balancing Act

Still trying to get it all together after my month long excursion.  Am I taking too long?  How does everyone else get stuff done so quickly.  I feel like time flies by for me.  Is this what is meant by relativity?  Maybe I’m just slow.  Anyway.. this is my last Squam blog.  The final day.  The TTV.

TTV is short hand for through the viewfinder.  Basically, you take a twin lens relex camera, make a box to block out the light, and photograph what you see through the viewfinder (hence the name) with your digital camera.  The results have a lovely old-timey feel and the square format that I LOVE.  I’ve always wanted to do this, but never really took the time.  Taking this class at Squam gave met he kick in the pants I needed to get going with it.  It’s a cumbersome contraption, for sure, so I’m not sure how much I’ll continue to use it.  But, it has given me the itch to shoot with my old Rollie again.  Oh how I love that camera.

The class was taught by the lovely HulaSeventy, whom I had the pleasure of collaborating with for the Spring issue of Vain Magazine.  It was a pleasure to finally meet her.

Here are the results of my TTV adventure:

I’d also like to give a little shout out to the fantastic women I met in the cabin next door:

SAW 2009 pt. 2

Day 2 entailed much mess and spilling and stickiness and color!  Not to mention, new friends and good conversations.  I thought that since collage is what I usually do anyway, this day would just be like an open studio for me.  It was actually much more than that.  Lisa is a seasoned collage artist and had all sorts of tips and tricks that I had either never heard of or been brave enough to try.  The piece I made that day has a similar look to many of my other pieces, but it was created with different materials.  I know that my work will be stronger from now on because of what I learned that day.  Pretty cool.
