I’m a member of ArtWorks, Inc., a local group that advocates arts in all mediums. Each year, ArtWorks sponsors the All Kentucky Juried Exhibition. This exhibit is open to all professional and amateur artists in Kentucky. This year, I entered “Writer’s Block” and “In Time” with hope that at least one of the pieces would be juried into the show. I was not disappointed. “Writer’s Block” will be on display, with many other fine art pieces from Kentucky artists, November 22-December 21 at 1945 Scottsville Rd. (This is in Thoroughbred Square behind Rafferty’s.) The opening reception is tonight from 6-8pm. The gallery will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 11am-4pm and Saturdays from 11am-2pm. Please stop by and support the Kentucky arts.
Have you been thinking of scheduling a session with your favorite fur baby? Well, now is the time to do just that! During the months of August and September, 100% of the session fee for every pet session scheduled will be donated to Smiles for a Cure to raise funds for canine cancer research. Don’t miss out on an awesome opportunity to help this important cause. Schedule today! (Contact me for details.)
My husband has recently taken up learning photography. He started with a basic point and shoot, then moved to a point and shoot that allowed him to photograph in (M)anual mode. There were frustrations, however, because he couldn’t pick focal points and do a few other things I suggested would help improve his images. A friend came to the rescue and let Ric borrow a 30D. Now, the bug has hit him hard. He talks photography with me all the time. And I love it! We go out a lot on the weekends and just walk around wherever the mood strikes us to see what goodies we can find to photograph. Sometimes, I even manage to sneak in a snap of Ric in action.
I’ve recently been invited to a couple of get-togethers involving local artists of many genres. I look forward to these nights when they are announced. The one I attended in March was at a local tattoo parlor that was in the process of relocating to this awesome space. (Visit Age of Reason when you get a chance to do so.) Because they were not yet moved in, there was plenty of room for the pARTy to be held in the shop. There was a great turnout for the evening and I tried my hand at something different for me. I’m not sure I’d call this event photography, or even lifestyle photography, but I enjoyed it just the same.
I’m looking forward to the next pARTy coming up April 16. It’s going to be held at Circus Square Park here in downtown Bowling Green and it’s open to the public. Stop by and meet some really cool artists. Bring your supplies and join the fun. Who knows? I might even bring my crayons and paper this time.
It’s time for the February installment of Fine Art Friday. I just happened to have an image printed this week for an upcoming exhibit and thought it would fit the bill for today as well. These are my husband’s work boots and I just love all the textures from the boots, the picnic table, and the surroundings.
Head on over to visit Laura Meeks, Albuquerque, NM Area Photographer and see what she has in store for you today.
Back in August of 2012, American Idol came to Bowling Green, KY for a day of tryouts for the current season. A friend asked if I would like to go downtown and photograph some of the action. I did go, but didn’t take many photos of the singers and musicians. I was, instead, smitten with the furry friends who were hanging out with their families listening to the auditions. Here is a favorite from that day. I recently pulled it out to share with the Sunny Sixteen Photography Club for the Street Photography Challenge and decided I should share it here as well.
I just came across a great article about taking the time to learn photography before spending tons of money on expensive equipment. Read the article here: Photography Talk. What better way to share my Black Friday offer with you! Mention that you read this article and receive 15% off a Beginner’s or Advanced four hour class. Offer is good through midnight Friday. Don’t miss this great deal! (Especially if you went out shopping and found a great deal on a dSLR. : ) ) I look forward to hearing from you.
This past weekend I went on the Kelby World Wide Photo Walk with a group of fellow photographers here in Bowling Green, KY. This was the first year I had participated in the walk and I really had a great time. I’ll definitely be going on the walk in future years. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:
On a recent Sunday morning, Ric and I were driving around Bowling Green searching for inspiration for an upcoming photo exhibit I am participating in with the Sunny Sixteen Photography Club. The theme for the exhibit is In “Reverse” due to it being in conjunction with a classic car show in Franklin, KY. We spotted a few old cars for sale in a local body shop parking lot. I am generally not one to go for full shots of anything and this time was no different. I tried to capture a few details of a couple of the cars and really liked the rusty, worn-out feel of the images I walked away with when I was finished shooting. Here’s to the classics!
Have you recently gotten a dSLR camera, but you’re just not certain what all those buttons are for? Maybe you’ve had one for awhile and you love to take pictures, but really want to take things a step further and take better pictures. Why not take a photography class and learn more? I offer a four hour beginner’s class, as well as a four hour advanced class and a business class to help you become a legal operating business in Kentucky.
Contact me today for more details and to sign up. I look forward to hearing from you.
