Oxbow is having an art exhibition tomorrow September 28 at 7PM at Safe-tee Management. It’s going to be exciting! A few of us local area photographers have stuff to display as well as artists and musicians. Entry to the event is free will offering with all proceeds going to the OPHS Band Program. This is the first event of its kind for Oxbow as far as I can tell. I hope everyone can come out and take part, it’s going to be a metric tonne of fun! I’m showing 12 large prints under the theme of “People of the Living Skies.” It shows a variety of environmental portraits I’ve done over the years featuring our awesome Saskatchewan prairie skies. Don’t miss it! 😎
I decided to do a book review – a video book review! The book is Tamara Lackey’s “The Art of Children’s Portrait Photography.” I enjoyed the book very much, she does a really good job with it. The review video is just some of my thoughts, what I liked and thought could have been better! 🙂 I think we should always be reading and watching what other photographers are doing so that we can eventually develop our own style. I liken it to learning to play the piano. When you first start out, you learn songs that other people wrote. With much practice, you may even write your own stuff someday. Same goes for photography. See what awesome photographers are up to, what you like and don’t like, then make it your own! Have fun!
