200 Yards @ Dirty Thieves

We're at it again. Another 200 Yards show has been selected. The photographers have been notified and are working on framing their selected pieces. This time around the venue is a little more gritty, but not only offers a livelier atmosphere, the surrounding neighborhood is much more vibrant. I'm really excited to see everything hanging together.

In the coming weeks I'll be posting a few sneak peek images on the 200 Yards Blog, so be sure come visit. In the meantime here's all the details:

A Little Bragging Of Our Own

To jump off Shelly's post about her hesitation to talk about her work I'm going to do a little public bragging about our latest project, 200 Yards.

I too agree that talking about myself, my projects, and my passions is often hard. I'm proud of what I do and excited by it all, but a sudden shyness takes over when someone else notices. Today I was struck with that feeling again as I showed a friend the promotional postcard for the first 200 Yards show and she looked at me with this great smile on her face and said, "This is so great! I remember when you told me about the idea and now you've made it happen. It's real." But I did make this idea happen, the show really came together and I also think it's going to be a great show. I should be proud of that. I should be telling everyone to come to the opening. Yet I still struggle and probably always will.

But...I'm going to take a cue from Shelly's post below and practice sharing. We all have something worthwhile to share, we all have that accomplishment that makes us a little giddy when we think about it. Tell someone!

More From 200 Yards

There's a new post over at 200 Yards with a few more photos. This time I went out armed only with my wide angle lens, a bit of an experiment for me. I tend to like to get up close and personal with my photography and basically always use my telephoto or macro lens. Head on over to see a few more.


200 Yards Motivation

I just posted some photos I took earlier this week on a photo safari for the first 200 Yards show. I love a motivating photo assignment so I just had to go out and shoot even if I won't be a part of the show. But it seems such a shame to keep those images to myself so I'll share in hopes that they motivate all of you to get out there shooting and send us your favorites.

Check out the first post here. And keep checking back as I had a hard time deciding which ones were my favorites and I plan another expedition this weekend.



Photographers Needed

200 Yards is in progress and we need all San Francisco photographers to download a map and start taking pictures. The deadline for submissions is July 12th and the opening recpetion is August 18th. You can find all the details here. Now get out there and start snapping pictures!
