So, 2013 was not the best of years for me, perhaps I dwelled on the bad for far too long, and did not step out into the light to make changes happen. I have a friend who has helped me see the things of beauty once more, as well as played a key role in supporting me. I love her. Thanks Kath!
But anyways, its time to take 2014, and push it further and stronger, I love being apart of the art world, and missed a great chance to go visit Scott Church's Gallery Show. I will not miss it this year. I want to be more active and do more creative arts this year. So a few people who are here on DA know me on FB as well, that I have launched a Private group and invited all the best of the best on the east coast to network and that helps keep the flowing of ideas.
I am sharing more concepts and shoot styles, but always looking to learn as well. So, the trade is the trade, in order to grow, you need to expand with the friends who do the same thing you love to do as well.
I am looking forward to 2014, and the challenges that it will bring.
On a sad note a long time friend who was my age, died just yesterday, he became ill with the Swine Flu, (N2H1). Within in 4 days of being happy go lucky to complete liver shutdown and death. I want to say to anyone in the big citys, or the small spaces, take care of yourself, get a flu shot.
With that said, I am now on week 6 of not smoking anymore, I am now taking the time to be more active, walking and getting rid of my beer gut, and pressing to be more active and to be out shooting way more either with my fantastic Nude Model friends, or just learning some more Strobist light styles, as well as playing with HDR, Infrared, and other new techniques for some non human art styles.
I have all this damn gear, but I just love to focus on one thing a year. So, I am now going to just shoot a mish-mash of crap that I have been wanting to shoot. I still love to do the fantasy edits as well, as my Scifi work and I have already shot some this year to kick off my 2014.
I look forward to just finding some core people who wish to build some art with me.. I think this will be a very fun year!
Thanks all for keeping in tune with me.
