Enroute to PingHu Copyright 2008 Douglas Stockdale
I am continuing to evaluate my body of work from 2007 – 2008 made in China that is evolving into one of two potential book projects, with these photographs for “Flow of Light Brush the Shadow”. I am also using a new tool (for me), uploading the strongest images into a FaceBook album of the same name. I am trying this virtual album to help with experimenting and testing image pairing and potentially sequencing as I prepare to make a Marquette of the book to show around.
So far, once I figured out how to create a FB album and then load additional images in it, the process is proving to be not too bad. In fact, I did a copy and paste of the images for this post from that album, something I was not sure that I could accomplish, but here is the proof of the process. One of the aspects of this FB album that I appreciate is the ease in which I can move images from location to location within the matrix and they remain in place as I leave and return to the album.
Over the past week, I have finished uploading about 25 photographs and now I am pausing while I consider the images that are now in place. Also, I am not in the studio this week, so that forced a stop to my uploading. Another nice aspect is that I can also work on the possible pairs and combinations while I am on the road, an interesting aspect of this virtual album. So when I return to the studio, for the next photographs I upload, they will be for a specific location in the album, a process I only recently was accomplishing with prints. hmmmmm.
