Hopefully there will be more time to shoot, and upload soon. I have been shooting a lot of film lately, which means there isn’t a ton of material for the blog to post on a daily basis, unless I’m pruning the archives. Since I am not home, my scanner isn’t available to scan film, and the vast majority of my photo archives are on my computer at home, hundreds of miles away.
However, I am hoping to get some medium- and long-term projects going soon. There are some that I have been chewing on for a while, and need to start; the ideas I have need to be fleshed out a bit, and I’m afraid that film is how I have been shooting lately, which means a delay in getting my shots to the masses. My plan is to post regularly, but fewer shots each day–maybe only one each post–so that having fewer shots to post doesn’t seem as noticeable.
If you have ideas for projects, I’d love to hear them. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the photographs you have seen on my blog, or in my books? If you were advising me on a project, where would you push me to go? Is it best to work within my strengths, or to take my work in a new direction, to further my skills and my artistic ability? I am mostly interested in people, and their environments. I would like to have a project (or several projects) documenting the local area I am living in now–the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-Saint Paul–which could ultimately be made into a gallery, and/or book. I’d love some feedback from my loyal viewers.
