289 – Hanging the exhibition

Tonight we hung our photos in the Six@66 photography exhibition. Marica and I have collaborated with four other photographers, under the mentoring of Fleur Wickes; and have come together to exhibit our portrait works.

Portraiture is something of a departure for me – it’s not that I haven’t taken photos of people before, but a deliberate photographic effort is something I haven’t done for a long time.

The most learning has happened apart from behind the camera. Reflective practice. We make the photos, short list them, offer them for critique to the other photographers, and then reflect on the commentary. It’s a bit traumatic at times – things are always like this when you’re being stretched. Not just in photography.

Manifesto
34. Every day focus on your dreams.
38. Every day be brave and give things a go. Use fear to trigger you into action.
43. Every day accept you will make mistakes. Learn from them. They are opportunities in disguise.
