Apparently I am beyond useless with this thing and my Patreon. I’ll take about 85% of the blame. Every time I’m in the studio or out doing something and want to share it on here the app just refuses to work claiming I don’t have internet connection, hours later when I’m home I’ve forgotten about everything and then repeat the cycle..
So far for 2017 I’ve started using the expired b+w polaroid film with some interesting effects. I have no idea how old the film was when it was bought last year but all the photos are coming out sepia. Half way through the film it wasnt even giving me a full exposure anymore so the whole thing is basically a giant surprise to what sort of a photo I’m going to have come out of the camera. I have one I’ll upload as soon as I get it scanned.
The pinup calendar is still a work in progress. The goal is September because the 15th is World Lymphoma Awareness Day. I think I’m about half way through and now that the studio wall is finished I can do a couple more quite easily.
I’ve already got the next Punks Against Poverty show booked for March and organising that and I’m really eager to do some other fundraisers for the charity as well. To get completely shallow, I realised my birthday is a Friday this year so I told the venue to put that date on hold too. I spent a long time hating on my birthday for reasons (there were always fights or people making it about them then last one with my mum was spent sitting in a hospital waiting room), so this is as close as I get to partying and for a change it’s going to be all about me.
I have decided that to get into the swing of things in the studio and get a routine going (it’s an anxiety thing) that I’m going to do head shots. It’s a theory anyway.
