Last Friday had a wonderful evening at LACP for the Faculty group exhibition opening reception. Top line; it was nice to see my Middle Ground print on the wall, a continuing validation of this project. Second it was really enjoyable to see some friends in that we do not usually have a chance meet-up often enough. Lots of shared stories and updates. Also wonderful to hear from some past workshop participants and current photographers who I am mentoring on the progress that they are making artistically. More information about this reception can be found at Clausing’s SoCal PhotoExchange post.

It was also a chance for me to obtain some more feedback on my Middle Ground book-dummy, which was really interesting and insightful as I listened to their comments and suggestions. First, a confirmation that the soft/fuzzy lower left corner of my images created by the back bracket issues of the Canon 5DMk3 needed to be addressed (this really irritates me every time I need to work on these images as a result of the inadequate Canon camera body construction). Thus my big project for yesterday was identifying which images needed modifying, typically with a slight different cropping that emphasized the right side of the image to crop out the bothersome lower left issues. That resolved all but one image and now I am figuring out which image to use as a replacement.

Today making the final changes for the book printing files for the printer, revised images for the book dummy and new Epson exhibition prints.

All of this while under a little bit of a deadline as I have appointment tomorrow morning at a gallery in Culver City (LA) about a potential exhibition opportunity. So stay tuned, as I may have some exciting news very soon.

Cheers!
