Salty and Blue

I am unpacking my old cameras, ordering darkroom chemistry and learning how to print digital negatives. In a few months I’ll be offering original fine art prints and portraits.  It’s  really exciting, and I can’t wait to get to work!  Below is a dogwood blossom from my front yard. I’m going to be using this photo to practice a few alternative processes including cyanotypes and salt prints.

Spring Forward

Nearly 200 seedlings are sitting in the greenhouse, 2000 worms are adjusting to their new habitat, the soil for our garden is being turned over, and at 2:00am we all were launched an hour into the future.

FBC is closing up shop for a few weeks, and will reopen with a new name, more focused services, an updated portfolio, and all of the other things I should have done a year ago.  There have been many factors to consider in making this decision.  The greatest being my new location. I need to reposition my work to be successful in this area, and in the process I am evaluating my style, workflow management, and everything in between.

I can already tell you awesome things are going to happen.  Perhaps it is the change of season, or being fueled by conversation with a fellow photographer, but I am finding the energy to invest in my work.  When I debut the transition I hope you will all celebrate with me.

Happy almost-spring, everyone. I’ll see you soon.
