Idea

I just saw this today on PIG's website, what a fantastic use of double exposure. I hope it was done in camera. It gave me so many ideas, I can't wait to shoot!

The Greatest #3: Rosie Hardy



My friend and fellow photographer, Lisa Wiseman, just sent me the work of Rosie Hardy.

Who is this girl and where did she come from? Her work is fantastic, although I do prefer what's on the link above to what's on her official site. Again, it is such a thrill to know people like her are taking photos.

I've read a bit about people feeling she copies other artists with out giving credit, but I think her work stands on it's own, it has a unique style, and all of us use images that inspire us without giving credit. For example, I have a shoot coming up and this photo gave me the idea to shoot at Pyramid Lake.

While I understand some people feel she is directly reinterpreting/copying the work of others, I feel so much of her work is her own, and very good at that, it isn't truly an issue.

The Latest PDN Magazine

Who-hoo, PDN did a piece on promos under $3,000 and they featured my iBooks!

I've been making promos with iPhoto for 2 years now and it is such a great way to keep your promos current while not spending a lot of money. They are these tiny books, about 2.5 by 3.5 inches that you can order 3 at a time or more and cost about 59 cents to mail to any ad firm, magazine editor or the like.

The article really breaks down the costs per book and the ease of creating layouts within the program; I am a huge fan of them, it's one thing Apple has done incredibly well.

And Paul, in iPhoto's customer service, has the patience of a saint, if the books get damaged in transit or have any other issues, he has always gone out of his way to help. It was wonderful of PDn to include me in this feature, I am thrilled with how it turn out.
