diesel BS: Photo Exhibition (23) RE: BS: Photo Exhibition 02 Dec 06

Hello All

Thanks for the wishes ahead of the launch.

My God I'm still on cloud 9. The opening happened last night and was attended by I think 80-90 people, wine glasses in hand. Feedback on the night was brilliant, longstanding friends saying 'knew you took photo's but....! ' or ' heard you mention before - never realised...'

Hardest job in the final days was not what photos to put on the walls - it was what NOT to put on the walls. Huge lesson if any 'catters go the same direction, to balance colour V's theme etc - some of my favourites just had to go on a shelf - else the wall would be cluttered.

Ended up with five walls - simple clean single lines of 10x8's black card frame mounted. Above which were 20x12 canvas (photo on canvas) and 20x12 print (black card frame mount also)

I think about 70 images alltold.

For the remainder photo's in the collection, ran them on a slideshow projected onto spare wall. Worked brilliant, gave a changing visual backdrop as people were talking, avoiding people leaving early and in at least one case I know of made a sale by virtue of a 10x8 being sold as 20x12 - because the projector showed it's scaled effect.

Nerves finally got to me as I said my few words, but exhaustion - Bang - today has been a wrecker....

Thanks for letting me ramble, until I get my own website running - which I definitely am going to do now, I'm going to continously add to the link above. Will submit the walled exhibits first, and post back here if you want to re-visit.

And still the day job to attend to...

Diesel !
