for our friends far and away, and for some of us getting on a bit with failing memory (myself included)....
- there was great recent work from patrick and frank. more later...
- frank told us about next years proposed 'foto week dc' festival (thanks for the nice badges)
- the 'create your own' photo book website is here
- here is the documentary about the queen being shot by annie leibowitz...
- i was thinking it might be fun to start a blog for this group - viola!
Frank also handed out badges for next years proposed 'foto week dc' a week long photography festival to be held in Washington DC next november. It's very early days in the planning stages and nothing is officially announced yet but it sounds like it will be an amazing 5 days. Stay tuned at Suds and Silver for more details in the coming weeks.
Erica mentioned a day trip to Philly to see the Lee Miller exhibit
Patrick, chipped in the following info. "For those who were there and saw Frank's portraits of the musician couple, here is the Sargent painting that is similar to his picture of the violinist. Also, these are the pictures that I shared with the group. See you all in the new year"
Dan then asked to see Frank's violinist image which he duly sent all of us via email. I will contact Frank to see if he wants to share it on the blog.
Graeme talked about the gig he shot at wonderland ballroom on wednesday night. the band were called milkmachine and were not exactly your average indie rock outfit. For one thing there was a souzaphone being played on stage. as for the technical details, "i used my d40 with a nikkor f1.8 50mm prime lens. i also shot 2 rolls of film with my nikon fm-3a and another 50mm f1.8 nikon lens. Focusing was really tough in the low light and alot of the shots came out blurred. i did get some keepers though".
