My Favorite Game

As usual, I’m playing catch up. I wish I was a little better at this blogging thing. Perhaps one day I’ll find my groove, but until then, here are a few highlights from recent weeks.

Spectra Show Tweetup

My very first solo exhibit is on display in Frederick, Maryland through October 28. The Spectra Show features 27 prints of instant film photos created with Polaroid Spectra cameras. A few local friends stopped by last week for a lunchtime tweetup, and the official reception is Thursday, October 6.

Paul Giambarba, the design great who created iconic packaging for both Polaroid and The Impossible Project, has a keen eye for art and photography. I was honored to be included in the “Instant Summer” series (Day 17 and 52), and more recently in an “Instant Talent” spotlight on his Branding of Polaroid blog.

Last weekend, I took a fantastic food photography class at The Kitchen Studio in Frederick. Our instructor, Andrea J. Walker, shared some amazing tips, and Chef Christine whipped up a bunch of photogenic and delicious treats for us. Most of my photos were digital, but I snapped a couple instant photos with my Polaroid SLR680 and Impossible PX680 film. The analog shots are by far the most imperfect, but of course, I find them much more captivating. Isn’t that always the way it is?

    Congratulations on your show! That’s super exciting! I wish I could be there to see it.

    Also, I love the instant photos you took from your food photo class. They have so much character. :D

      Thanks! There’s something about the glow and grain of instant film. It really does add something special!
