As I write this, I’m on the Flyaway bus service to LAX airport. I’m flying to Miami to present my Photoshop for Photographers seminar. While I’m there, I’ll be meeting up with a few friends before I fly to Columbus, OH to look at a 1947 Greyhound Bus that I’m thinking of purchasing.
Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to since my June 1st post:
- Drove from Los Osos, CA to San Francisco
- Parked the bus in Berkeley, CA and met with my publisher
- Did a quick tour of Canada (Ottawa, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto) to present my Photoshop for Photographers seminar.
- Replaced my 15″ MacBook Pro with a 17″ model that has a much higher resolution screen
- Presented my Photoshop for Photographers seminar in San Francisco
- Shot some models in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco
- Met up with Bill Atkinson (inventor of the drop down menu, creator of MacPaint and a good photographer) and Charlie Cramer
- Was a guest on Bert Monroy’s Pixel Perfect podcast (I don’t think they’re available yet, but I’ll post here with a download link once I hear that they’re live.
- Drove to Healdsburg, CA to visit a friend
- Went to lunch with a bunch of people from Adobe
- Drove to Los Angeles and parked the bus in Venice Beach
- Test drove a 1950’s Flxible Clipper Bus… the same kind that was seen in the movie “RV”
- Did a bunch of light painting with a few friends and got together with a bunch of people I met during my last visit to Maui
- Spent the 4th of July at a party in Malibu right on the water
- Had a friend from Maui drop by for two five day visits (one in June and one in July)
- Completed a new biography, artists statement and price list for my photography site. I haven’t posted them yet, but should get them up there within the next week or so.
- Did some light painting at a rehearsal studio
- Met up with a at least a dozen individual friends in between all the stuff I did above
The photo above is a composite of about 15 photographs. It’s a light painted self portrait using two flashlights… one in each hand.
