Rust never sleeps

Previous / Next

This weekend, we went to a party arranged by Studio A7, Morten Krogvolds studio.
We met a lot of people we knew, and some we didn`t know. I tend to get a little nervous and the minute before we leave the house, I always look for excuses not to go. But this was THE weekend for us. Jeanette got tons of positive feedback when she showed photographs of her paintings, a friend of ours called her son who runs a gallery, and he`s going to take a look at her paintings tomorrow!
I saw some new prints made by another photographer, and was so inspired by the punch in the prints compared to mine (prints from the local lab.) I went to the basement, found the old enlarger, and made a few prints yesterday. One of the prints is the one I`ve posted today. It`s from my trip to the beach last Thursday. Now, printing my own photographs is definitely something I have to do more. They came out a lot better than I thought they`d do. I got invited to join two photographers in a two-days darkroom-workshop this spring, and to join them 4-5 times a year when they meet and bring a new photograph for constructive criticism. Heavy stuff!!! They`re serious photographers, and I better act serious too.
What I`ve learnt from this weekend is: The possibilities is there for everyone. We just have to be present and react, and be willing to take a chance.

:) When I read about all the hassle you go through in the lab to have pictures developped really feel like I never took one :)) And I feel a bit of envy as well, as I've forgotten completely about what to do in a lab!
