Dear Kyle Freaking Cassidy,
do you know anyone whose middle name isn't "freaking"?
blarg, that's the week i'm going back east for a visit. i can't wait to see the results. jealous of those who do get to attend
When do you want to do the one we discussed?
spring, when we can take models and costumes outside in teh woodz.
My Photo I class (yep, I'm taking it back to film. It's time to learn the fundamentals) is working on a depth of field assignment this week. I hadn't thought about using that technique on just one item, like you did in the first photo - I was thinking more along the lines of people, or 1 item with everything blurred behind it, adding some perspective to the image with some linear planes. You've definitely given me something to think about. :) Thank you, Kyle!
shallow DOF is my secret weapon. though now it's not a secret.

I'm really looking forward to this, in so many ways. I note, btw, that Cat Freaking Mihos is coming, which makes me very happy. What fun we will have!
I'm totally psyched about Cat Freaking Mihos
Where in San Diego will the workshop take place?
University and Fifth, at Jay Whaley's studio. Really nice space, right in the heart of Coolsville.
This is all too far from Rome, dear...
I wish I could make it.
great shot of the bracelet, too. thanks!
the bracelet looks stunning!
I think this is a much more reasonable fee, considering your skill and what-all, than what I paid in November. ;>
And I'd sign up for it in a heartbeat, believe it or else.
Oh wow, this is so Relevant To My Interests and business needs it's not funny, and yet so geographically far away :(
Any chance you'll be doing an East Coast version of this workshop at any point in time? Hell, I have the gallery/studio space to host it here in Philly...at least for now, potential sales contracts permitting...
I think Kate said something about us doing a bead something or other in 2011 ... but we can talk about doing something before.
n.b. one of your earring things was in the set of sample photos i sent to kate.
That's a positively gorgeous bracelet.
Unrelated mostly - if you were in the market for a digital point and shoot pocketable camera, how would you go about selecting one?
I still want to get a d-slr, but I figure a mediocre camera in the pocket is better than no camera at all.
Funny, I was just in the market for a small camera, so I was looking around a lot. The Canon Powershot G11 was the best of the bunch. My main criteria were the option for manual control, the ability to use external (studio or off camera) strobes, and low light (digital noise) performance. It's significantly better in low light than the g10 which might mean that you can find g10's cheap used since a g11 is halfway to a DSLR in terms of price....
I love that shot of the cufflinks.
if anyone needs a place to stay my place is open in san diego. i don't have any spare beds, but if no one minds couches i've got plenty of those.
Oh! You'll be here!! That's the weekend of my reunion though, which is in Pittsburgh. Which I'm debating on going to.
If it all works out, I'd really love to meet up. Is your lady coming with?
And also - how long would you be here for? You should make a week of it. :)
