Consumed by Photo Review

I stayed up until 5am last night. I had to Fedex a bunch of negatives to my favorite/most trusted lab in San Francisco today. I ate about a half a day's calories in candy through the night too. Bad! Thank goodness I've been exercising! Now it's a big coffee day. Sometimes we have to push ourselves into uncomfortable places in order to go where we want to go.

I'll post some images when I have a chance.

Acting Class

Tonight I received compliments on my scene from my fellow classmates. *Happy Feelings!*

I've Been Out of the Dark for Too Long

Today I bought a darkroom membership of 30 days to be used within 3 months. I printed for the first time in a year and a half, and boy am I out of practice! I worked with the same negative for about 3 1/2 hours. I'll be lucky if a good print comes out of today's batch. I remember when was able to print an image on fiber paper in about an hour when I was printing all of the time. That seemed slow to me then but today was ridiculous. It will probably take me a few days to get my groove back. It becomes much more intuitive the more you do it. I just wish that I didn't have to go through so much paper. It gets quite expensive if you don't quite know what you are doing.

I finally signed up for darkroom use because I am going to Photolucida's photo review in a few weeks and I want to add a few more images to my portfolio. I have been doing photography for so long without a proper critique and I need some professional feedback. I'm quite excited and nervous. I'm afraid of hearing something that I don't want to hear, but I'll never grow to my full potential if I continue hiding.

While I'm in Portland for Photolucida, I also get to hang out with my wonderfully talented and artistic friend Olivia too! We are going to a "dance party" together. What fun!

Art Shows

Last night was fun. We went to the MOCA opening party for the Visual Music show. The highlight for me was seeing some Robert Rauschenberg combines from the permanent collection.

Afterwards we headed to the Create:Fixate show where I had some photos being exhibited. It was a pleasant surprise to see that I sold one of my photos. I ran into my friend JF who said that a friend of his was talking about some photos that he really liked. When JF went inside to see what his friend was talking about, he found out that they were mine. I was quite flattered and happy to hear that.

If anyone would like to see the show, it will be open next Tuesday through Thursday (2/15-2/17) from 5-9. A closing reception will be held on Thurday. Check out the site for more details.

Friends

A lovely scarf that my good friend Jessie sent to me in the mail:





It's handmade by her friend Sarah.



I remember how I had friends in San Francisco who would pester me to hang out with them. I was always busy trying to push my art career forward and would get frustrated from the pressure that they would put on me. It was only when I was in LA did I truly realize how lucky I was. Friends like that don't come around too often.
