SPE (Society for Photographic Education) conference was this weekend. I got to hear some great talks, namely from: Joan Fontcuberta, Catherine Lord, Mark Klett & Byron Wolfe, Kahn & Selesnick, and a new one to me, Mark Strandquist. In addition, I went to a few industry talks, spent a few hours in the expo hall fondling papers/talking to folks about things. Generally a good time, but I still haven’t been able to completely catch up on sleep or rid myself of the muscle soreness that comes from alternating long periods of sitting and walking. I came away with some great paper samples to try out for this semester’s project. I think the one I’m going to love the most is a Hahnemuhle matte paper called William Turner with deckled edges.
Spring Break is next week, and I have the unfortunate task of taking one of the dogs home to Indiana for a knee surgery that will take at least a month to heal, probably longer. Not looking forward to putting him in the “cone of shame.” Because I’m not going anywhere exciting, I should have lots of time to shoot more photos and hopefully some time to do print tests. Then I should be able to try the print/projection combo I’m currently kicking around when I come back to Columbus.
