I don't know about you, but I'm ready for this cold weather to move on out of here! With our first show less than two weeks away. Final preparations are under way for the 2016 Spring art show season. Tia and I are busy matting photos, checking our show tent for damage and scheduling art shows every day. It sure doesn't feel like spring though, with temps dropping into the teens overnight. If this weather keeps up we might have to put on snow boots for the ArtWalk in Smithville on the 16th!
But enough about the snow...who's ready for spring flowers? Next week I'll be heading out to see what's in bloom at local parks. I might take a trip to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania to see if I can catch a beautiful flower opening to warmer weather. Hopefully I can use our new Tamron 60mm Macro lens to capture up-close photos. We've had good success a few weeks ago when I started our newest photo gallery: Macro - The small world of photography. To really illustrate the world of macro photography you need plenty of good lighting and color to bring the subjects to life. With a new macro light bracket from Novoflex and the Tamron 60mm I'm sure I'll be posting amazing photos soon.
Tia and I will be in Edison this weekend for the NY - NJ Mineral, Fossil, Gem & Jewelry Show, located at the NJ Expo Center, Raritan Center. I'm on the lookout for new rock and mineral subjects to take pictures of. Have you ever seen close-up photos of gems or fossils? The amount of detail on some of these items is astounding to say the least. We hope to post a couple photos before the end of the weekend, to show you what I mean.
If you have any questions about any of the products we offer, please don't hesitate to email us. A couple weeks ago we had a customer ask us about paper choices for our prints. We offer various paper finishes for any photo so don't be afraid to ask us if you have a question. We love answering questions about our photography and hearing from our customers!
