I think maybe today I’ll start on a long-term project: to create prints (then get them framed) for 1) hanging on the embarrassingly empty walls around the home of this would-be photographer and 2) to be ready for the gallery showing I’ve been invited to hang in 2011 at the Montgomery County Museum along with a presentation there for that event.
I will make mistakes in both the printing and the framing choices, I’m sure, but I’ll learn some things along the way, and have some AH! and AHA! moments for sure.
And I’ll probably choose to print a rather odd assortment of subjects–mostly landscapes but not a few compositions that feature unusual perspectives of objects from nature not all that uncommon if you keep your eyes open–like this pore fungus I spotted while the dog was, er, doing what dogs do in the woods.
I’m going to look at Michaels tomorrow when I’m at B&N (signing books 2 to 4–stop by!) for some simple mats and frames but that will limit my print size options to the standard sizes and compositions don’t always oblige the 5 x 7 or 11 x 14 ratios. I may need to start ordering mat board and get out my Dexter Mat Cutter neglected now for 25 years. DIY!
