Saturday was the reception for my very first gallery show and thanks to you guys, it was not only a huge success but also a total blast. I wanted to thank all of you who have supported me in my photographic ventures through purchasing prints, commenting on photos here and on my photoblog, sharing my photos with your friends and even helping me select the photos for the show!
Thanks to the Perlow-Stevens Gallery for hosting my photography and Sycamore restaurant for providing all the delicious food.
Thanks to Sam who had the forethought to make it a Facebook event. You’d think that I’d be all over that since, well, I kinda do that sort of stuff for a living haha. Well I forgot and was pleasantly surprised to see that Sam had already setup a Facebook Event and invited dozens of people!
Sam and I hung out at the photolab for a while before dropping some stuff off at my apartment and heading to the show. We played with some old photography equipment at my place, Sam has the 50mm f/1.8 pancake lens I’ve always wanted! Took this image with it.
It had some back focus issues with my Nikon D80 but worked pretty darn good with my Nikon D700. Ultimately I’ll stick with my 50mm f/1.8, that is until I move up to the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G which is an incredible lens, albeit a bit pricy compared to the 50mm f1.8
A ton of people showed up at the gallery to check out the new work by Patty Oblack, Cat Tesla, Elaine Fleck, Susan Bostwick, Joel Sager, Michael Bauermeister, Derrick Breidenthal and of course, ME!
One of my photography class besties came out too, actually almost all of them!
Leah brought her camera and was kind enough to take a few pics of the reception. I’ll hope I can get them from her today and share them on the blog. Until then, here’s one of Leah checking out her shots and a couple of mine.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to support me, drink some wine and eat some delicious food. 😀 Oh and don’t forget, the show continues through May 15 so if you didn’t get a chance to see it yet, there is still time!
