My Current Projects

Written by:

I have a couple of projects going on right now. One of them is related to one of my goals for 2013.

I went through the images that I’ve taken over the past several years, selected a whole bunch (over 200!) and printed them via SnapFish. My intent is to make some sort of wall-sized photo board. It’s just so much fun to see so many memories – places we’ve been, things we’ve done, views we’ve seen – spread out in front of me. Friends and family and pets, vacations and lazy weekends, all mish-mashed together. It will make for a great conversation piece.

I just have to figure out how to pull it together. I’ve been searching the Internet looking for just the right inspiration. Pinterest is helping me out, but I can’t seem to hit upon the exact thing I’m looking for. Probably because I haven’t really defined what it is, exactly, that I want! So, I’d love to hear your suggestions if you have any to offer. Hit the comments, our Facebook Page, or our Google+ Community.

My second project involves filters. I purchased a Polaroid Optics 77mm 3 Piece Special Effect Lens Filter Kit. Two sets, actually – one at 77mm for my 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II telephoto lens, and one at 67mm for my 17-55mm f/2.8 IS wide angle and 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro lenses. Each kit contains a soft focus filter, a revolving 4 point star filter, and a warming filter. All for just $16.99 per kit at the time that I purchased them! I’ll be using each of these filters in various scenarios and posting reviews and tips in the coming weeks.

So! That’s what I’m working on! What new and exciting things are you doing with your photography? Share with us in the comments, on our Facebook Page, or in our Google+ Community.

    I used a 3′ x 4′ piece of black foam core. I attached the foam core to the wall using 3M Command strips. I use push pins on all four corners of the picture to attach the pictures to the foam core. If you want something more permanent you can always use spray adhesive. I leave a space between picture to give the appearance of a border or frame around the picture. My objective was to have something that I could easily change as I took new images. I made two boards, one for landscape and one for portrait orientations. People coming to our house always stop to review the pictures.
