Dash of Insanity

Not only was I lucky to have my photographs in this beautiful toy catalog, I was lucky to work with this inspiring person, Gisela Voss, Chief Toymaker of B. Toys as well. She wrote a really nice blog post about me—I think she called me a little insane... I love it!!!

Now I understand why so many kids don't like broccoli. They haven't had the real thing. 
I grew broccoli in my garden this year. Three adults stood around the kitchen counter last night gobbling it up—it was as if we had never eaten food before. The broccoli tasted like no other vegetable I've ever had. It certainly wasn't broccoli. This stuff was sweet and crisp, did I mention sweet! Please, please grow broccoli in your garden next year. I'm begging you. Call me in March and I'll even grow a couple extra seedlings for you. 
Here's the broccoli I grew from High Mowing seeds. But it wasn't broccoli.

TWO BIRDS Fundraiser: test shoot

The kids were wonderful and the shots are cute but the lighting was too simple, the background too empty...  I think I need to shake things up for the real shoot.

DeCordova Sculpture Park

We visited the DeCordova Museum this past weekend. A volunteer sometimes hangs out making bubbles for the kids. These weren't your regular-sweet-little-delicate bubbles. These were monster bubbles—they were practically knocking kids over—kind of bubbles. They were sculptures themselves.  

He shared his solution and you better believe I'll be making this:
• 1 part Dawn (the original kind, not the ultra stuff)
• 10 parts distilled water (distilled is key)
• .25 parts glycerin (works better than karo syrup)

If you're a professional photographer and your website has more words on it than photos—either change your site or change your career. (I was an art director for 10 years so I'm a Know-it-all, I mean, I feel I can post about this sort of thing. My blood will always be one-part art director.)   
(2¢ post series is me offering up my mostly useless, sometimes helpful photo-ad industry tips. enjoy!)

TWO BIRDS Update: studio space

So the wonderful Eric Kulin has offered up his studio space for the fundraiser, Two Birds. I barely got the question out of my mouth before Eric said "Sure, no problem."  I'm amazed at how open, willing and generous people are. I wish I had started this project years ago—just thought it was going to be a lot harder to pull together. 
The location was the biggest piece in the puzzle for me. To be honest, I was beginning to stress—I don't have a studio space of my own and I didn't want to stuff people into the basement of a church or classroom. My thinking is  — people will bid more (donations will be greater) if we shoot in a really nice space and offer up a little star treatment to the parents and kids. Studio space: check. Now I need to harass some stylists! Know any free groomers? 
To all my art director and creative director friends, please check out eric's work:
