My upcoming solo show dates have been confirmed. The dates are 24th April to the 30th May. The opening celebration is from 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Saturday the 27th of April, at Sunshine Art Spaces, City Place Sunshine. My fresh box of paper arrived today. So now I need to find and confirm frame sizes before I start the final preparations for this solo show.
I am planning on applying for a solo show in the near future at my local community gallery.
The exhibit will be about my experience of Sunshine, in the last 18 years, we moved here in 2000. Initially when I thought of the idea I imagined I would have plenty of imagery. Well after 3 or 4 sessions printing, not so many it seems. This will impact on the timeline for when I exhibit and which dates will suit me.
Here are 18 prints chosen so far. By my calculation 20 to 25 would be a more desirable number. This means more shooting, not a bad thing, I’m just surprised at how few good images I have?

The size of the prints is the first issue for me to ponder, the second the quantity. If I print large,… Continue reading Exhibition Preparation

Enlargers, the good the bad the ugly? I am often asked about all kinds of photography equipment, from cameras to tripods to enlargers and everything in between. Recently I was asked about what is a good enlarger so as I have yet too add this FAQ to my website I’ll start with a blog entry… Continue reading Enlargers?
