Before the day gets any later I feel I have to check in with everyone. I have had a number of emails and texts from friends over the last few days and they are wondering what might be up… Well, here is your life sign: It’s another gorgeous day at the lake… but I am not basking in the sun, not yet anyways! I am in the studio working hard. I am finally able to take advantage of a block of time where I am not making up kits, look after travel arrangements or packing suitcases.
This is what I have been striving toward for months now – a free block of time! I am working on “the book”. The manuscript text is pretty much complete with another edit to come before I save it to disc and send it off to the publisher. The images are what take the time now. I have made photos of work and samples along the way but as with anything, they don’t always work the way I envisioned them at the time of making the photograph.
Just to give you an idea about the time invested… I spent eight solid hours on 13 images and their captions yesterday. With those specs I best get back to work – I have a full day without interruptions and hope to get at least 20 images edited and inserted with captions.
Wish me luck! Enjoy your day!
