Instagram :: May 2012

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography continues. I’ve been even less active than previous months, but I’m happy to post the monthly update for May 2012.

Gallery shows, photographic prints, wine bars, wine cellars, and my birthday all caught my attention this past month…

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography continues. Though I’ve been less active than previous months lately, I’m happy to post the monthly update to recap April 2012.

Seattle, trains, mountains, views, record store day, a new facebook page, rooftops and art shows all caught my attention this past month…

Solo Gallery Show at Whitetail Wine Bar in Guerneville, CA Throughout the Month of May!

I’m excited to announce that Leslie Bahr of Whitetail Wine Bar in Guerneville, CA has invited me to show 11 pieces of my landscape photography in her lovely gallery. It’s a fantastic opportunity that I’m elated over as Russian River wine country  is just entering into the high season and I can’t wait to show my work in print to everyone starting this week and continuing throughout the month of May!

I’ve made ten 16″x24″ fine art prints mounted in archival museum gallery mats and one special 10″x40″ panorama I’m debuting at this show. The photographs range from images made through the window of our apartment in San Francisco overlooking the San Francisco Bay, to my travels throughout the United States, Europe, Iceland and New Zealand.

Of course I trusted none other than my friends at the never less than top notch professional photo lab, PhotoworksSF, to fabricate these prints and mats for me. I stopped by the lab for the pre-matting preview of the prints yesterday and I have never been more excited to see my images on paper.

It all kicks off with a lively First Friday event with guitarist Chris Samler, tasty wines being poured from Whitetail’s owner and proprietor, Leslie Bahr, and of course I’ll be there smiling away as we finish hanging my work and getting everything squared away for this month’s show.

If you’re in the need for a trip to sample some wonderful Russian River wines, please join us this Friday May 4 or anytime throughout the month of May at Whitetail Wine Bar, 16230 Main St. Guerneville, CA.

For more info, see Whitetail Wine Bar’s Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Instagram :: January 2012

Hikes in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks in New York, more wine country trips, getting back into shooting more film, Yale University libraries and full moons kept me happy. Discovered a few more iPhone apps, notably Squareready (so you can square border your rectangular images to post without cropping in IG), Camera Plus Pro (iTunes link), where you can shoot using live filters for both stills and video. The B&W videos through CP Pro come out pretty awesome. While annoyingly slow to use, ShakeItPhoto (iTunes link) is a really cool way to get Polaroid type images from your iPhone.

For data and infographic minded folks, Photo Stats (iTunes Store link) is a really cool way to see all of the stats about the photos you make using your iPhone.  At last check before downloading and backing up all of my iPhone images, I learned I had 22356 MB of photos on my phone (taking up 86% of the phone storage), 67% of my photos were in landscape format, I generally make my images in the morning and late afternoon, the average shutter speed is 0.041 seconds and 0% of my images used the internal flash.

Happy iPhoning!

Instagram :: December 2011

Holidays, a new year, road trips, glorious hikes in the redwoods of California and a trip to NY. All of that kept me pretty busy in December. Still loving iPhoneography through Instagram, and absolutely loving the Snapseed app from Nik Software, where I process at least half of my mobile images these days.
