It’s a Wrap – Entropy Done…

by on Sep.20, 2016, under Life, Photography

It’s a wrap and our Entropy Photography Exhibition is over.

After many months of planning and preparing we can relax… well at least till our next exhibition :).

NIKON D750 + 14.0 mm f/2.8 @ 14 mm, 1/8 sec at f/8, ISO 100

I thought you might like to take a look at what my small part of our exhibition space looked like along with some of the other work in the wider space.

Above you get to see the tight layout of my ten chosen pieces. All fitting within my interpretation of the “Entropy” theme and encapsulated as the “Interstellar Series”.

Exhibiting your work isn’t about getting rich financially. I figure going in that it costs more to put on than you expect back. It is however food for the soul and good for the creative artist in you. It’s an opportunity to refine your work and to work towards a specific goal. It’s a process of learning and growing. Even the experience of working out and doing everything you need to do to put on an exhibition (not just the images themselves) is both enlightening and rewarding.

It also allows you to get your work out there for the wider public to see. There’s something truly rewarding spending time chatting with the people who come in to see your work. Having real conversations with them about the experience, the work and the results.

There’s something very satisfying printing your own work, cutting mats by hand and framing the pieces. Then when you’ve hung them all together on the wall and can see them all large in their individual and collective glory…

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Whilst I was on duty one day I took in my gear and took some photographs of the setup. I lugged in my insane Novoflex multi row pano head and took a number of frames for full 360˚ panoramas.

I’ve included a couple of the 360˚ pano’s here but only including the middle row of images. I didn’t bother persisting with the multi row images (had some stitching problems so gave up :)).

I really must thank my fellow eight exhibitors and photographers, all part of “Parallaxis”. I’m grateful to you all for being so supportive and making all of this possible. Finally I must thank my family for putting up with me and allowing me the latitude to pursue this crazy passion of mine :).

I’m already planning and working on my next body of work for a future exhibition some time. I think we’ll let the dust settle on this one before locking in the next :).
