Fine Art Photography Exhibition Diary
I was looking back over my diary at the weekend and as I read I noticed how naive I’d been when I began the planning of my exhibition Ambiguous Misdirection.
Going back to the beginning I was talking to some friends whilst looking at some photographs in a gallery. The conversation went something like this,
“Nick you’re a photographer why don’t you have an exhibition?”
“Yeah I will one day I could probably put one on now”
“Well go on then mister big mouth do it!”
” Ok then I will, you can set the date if you want mate” blah blah blah and so on. I’m sure you can get the gist. And there it was a date was set and I was in it.
When I looked back at it I only left 10 weeks to shoot most of the images, get the venue sorted, the printing & framing done and all the rest of the stuff that goes with it. Yes crazy I hear you say and I have to agree with you totally.
The first thing I needed to do was plan the images or to be more precise come up with ideas that I was going to shoot AND then find the models.
I have to admit that looking back my Dutch Courage was fueled by the dreaded drink but once I’d taken on the challenge I had to carry on through.
In the next post I’ll give a little more information on the few days after my momentous decision, especially the realisation of how much I’d actually taken on.
Keep watching and keep reading. I’d love to hear your comments too.
