Silence may be golden, but still uncommunicative.

Silence may be golden, but still uncommunicative.

OK – I know I have been silent. But for good reason, I have been working my butt off on several projects. Life is full of things to do, many of which many are good, others just take your eyes off of what is important. For that reason, things will be rather sporadic around here over the next few months. But stay will me and keep checking back.

So here is a whole host of news that has been piling up whilst I was away.

First, and one of the most important thing event happening out side of Lumen Dei in September is my good friend Gavin Gough is leading a workshop to Bhutan. This is a magical place full of wonderful colors and culture. Gavin is one of the most talented photographers I know and is a blast to shoot with. So if you got the time and the danero, do this workshop. You can find all the details HERE and Gavins work and blog HERE.

The Fuji Super 6 gallery is touring India. You can find more info on it HERE.

Part of what I have been doing this week is working at cleaning up my gallery and tightening the selections a bit more. But I have to confess, I just can’t bring myself to keep it to under 15 images. I am having a hard time just getting each gallery down to 20. I have enlisted the help of two of the best out there and they are telling me like it is. Gavin and David have been kind but ruthless, hmm… can you be both of these at the same time? Anyway, they are helping me edit my selections down. Again, as I stated on Monday, if you haven’t done this, it is a good idea and now is a great time. In fact, I might be willing to be persuaded to help as David and Gavin have done for me, if you are interested. Call it a kind gesture or sadism, not sure which. But the offer is out but limited.

By the way, my galleries are a work in progress, only the first four are done. I actually deleted whole galleries and am combining others. So keep checking back. Have a great wekend.

    WOW, just went over to your portfolio and it is nice. I see you did lots of cleanup and added some wonderful new work. Some panorama, which I personally liked. Thanks for sharing. The new layout is nice too, and for some reason, the website run faster this time when I load up the galleries and viewing.

    You forgot to put a border=”0″ tag in your logo for this blog. It is now showing the purple border which I don’t think you wanted.

    Peter,

    I don’t see it and I have not touch the blog since I first made it a few month back. So if something has changed it might not be me. But I will check it out. Though it was so long ago I am not even sure I how I loaded the logo. 😉

    It will not show if you’re using Mac and viewing using Safari browser, but with IE it show the purple border that ruin the nice clean blog that you have. Locate your logo in WordPress and add the border=”0″ tag to the logo image like this.

    Matt, I’d love to reserve your kind-gestured, sadistic eyes for a couple of weeks from now, if possible. At the very top of my list for when I get home (week from tomorrow) is to finally cull the three-year old images from my portfolio and rebuild it from scratch. It seems unfair to ask you to look until I’ve done a bit of purging myself. In the meantime, I’ll now head to your portfolio to see what you’ve done (with your first four). Cheers.

    Jeffrey,

    I would be happy to help. What I did with David and Gavin was knock down my images to about 30 to 40 and they went through and picked out the best 20. Not a lot of conversation, kind of like Zack’s deal; if you want my opinion then take it with out whining. We did chat a bit about why once or twice, but mostly I trusted their thoughts. Just tell me when.

    No fears. I can take it. There’ll be no whining. I might beat my head against the wall and throw things at the computer, but I promise not to whine. In fact, brutal honesty is what we all need sometimes. I think that this is why Zack’s reviews have gotten so much attention – part is what we can learn from what he says, but I think that part is also our amazement that people would publicly put themselves threw it. Kudos to them for doing so as that’s how we move forward.

    Matt,

    I like the flow of the galleries and as Peter said the panoramas are a nice touch.

    I’m interesting in taking you up on your kind (and sadistic) offer to do a portfolio review. I’ve just finished putting together my site (actually some things need cleaning up, but the images are there).

    I’d love to get your input.

    Cheers,
    Alex
