I haven’t taken the time to blog much lately, but a lot has been happenin’ around here. Here are the highlights.
Last weekend was full of “photographic fun.” Saturday I shot some photos at Hains Point with a couple dudes; talked shop with Mark Baird at Eastern Market after that; and then gave a friend a crash course in photography around Georgetown on Sunday. I also got to take my new 8 gig memory card for a test drive. It’s much more responsive than my 6 gig microDrive. I dig it!
I finished my latest Metro reader (i.e. a book that can be picked up and put down without losing context. See also “bathroom reader”). My Job is a Joke. I won’t be doing a review of it, but here are a couple favorite lines. “A consultant is someone who takes the watch off your wrist to tell you what time it is.” “If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.”
Docs in Progress has been hugely helpful in giving some objective feedback about a documentary I’ve been working on. Their feedback was so encouraging and it came at just the right time. The founders of Docs in Progress are essentially film consultants aimed at documentary filmmakers in the D.C. area. They have been extremely helpful! Keep them in mind if you or someone you know is looking to film a documentary.
This weekend I’m headed to North Carolina to shoot a wedding. I’m taking a three-man crew with me, so it should be sweetness! I’m excited about that! Also, there are some exciting rumors floating around about Mud Productions wedding photography… stay tuned! Thanks for checkin’ in!
