Gateway to the soul (Feb 28th, 2006)
Eyes, they say, are the gateway to the soul. Coincidentally, they also reflect the environment outside of one's self. Quite a paradox I'd say.

This past weekend I did a number of shoots, approx. 300-400 exposures total. After culling, about 40 shots I liked. That's quite the haul for two days I'd say. Haven't been in the studio at all but have been using the Alien Bees, my vigilant sidekicks.

Oh yeah, and I chose a name. (Feb 11th, 2006)
The logo isn't final, but is the general direction I think I'll be going. Want to communicate : light! art! professionalim!

Alien Bee Landing (Feb 11th, 2006)
They've arrived. I spent hours yesterday unpacking, customizing and goofing around with my new studio lighting kit. I got quite a well-rounded kit and can't wait to start shooting some portraits. Should be able to setup at the studio next Wednesday. I did start a Spanish night course this past Wednesday ... but was glancing at the clock within the first half hour. Boring!

I'd rather be shooting.

Wabbits (Feb 5th, 2006)
As part of a series of fantastic events this weekend, I had the opportunity to take some macro shots of some newborn rabbits. This little guy is less than a day old.

Another from the series is the news that I have found a space to use as a studio! It's a very large, open, shared space in downtown Nanaimo. There are 7 other artists that use it as a creative workshop. Mostly painters.

Getting a bit frustrated with the effort it's requiring to devise a name for the studio business that I like though. It'll come to me ... it'll come to me.
