Odds and Ends of Sorts
For starters, those of you who missed out on the Dali creative pack from Hipstamatic have another chance to pick it up. They are offering something called a "Retro Pack" which contains the Dali lens. If you like the Hipstamatic images like I have been doing, this Retro Pak might be just the ticket for you. It's a way of getting the film/camera combination that I love to use for the Hipstamatic and it's only available for a very short time, so download away (but don't all download at once!)
Next up, we have LONG SHOT. That's coming up this weekend. I am thinking about doing some long exposure type stuff-I'm actually thinking about setting up dear camera on a tripod and shooting the night sky out of my bedroom window-maybe even something like a five hour exposure to get some star trails (and the like.) Stay tuned to see if I can pull this off. I believe I have all of the equipment so it might be a fun thing to try, if I can get it going, that is.
The Georgetown Art Hop released their call for entries today. Don't forget to sign-up if you are an artist in the local (Georgetown/Austin-y) area.
Lastly, I'm about to kickoff making a Facebook page for my art and photography items. (I've always hated the words "art and photography" since photography is art, but it's hard to distinguish pastels, oils, encaustics, and photography, so I guess I'll have to use it too) Look for an artist page popping up on Facebook and be sure to "Like" me once I can get it together and get it going. (Watch for more details here, once they are available.)
It's going to be over 100 degrees here today in River City. Hot, very hot, getting hotter, and very blasted out light makes for a lot of sweat on the brow. Kind of hard to keep focused when you're painting by the sound of the a/c kicking in at 8 o'clock in the morning, let me tell you.
Here's hoping for some much needed rain.
Until next time...
