Well, it’s finally happened. Â I have my own “show”, well, of sorts anyway.
In the Embassy Theatre/Indiana Hotel windows along Harrison Street are several windows of my photos. Â This part of the “Play Downtown” campaign initiated by the Downtown Improvement District.
The creator of the display is Katie Hartzog who owns Hartzog Interiors. Â I think she did a wonderful job of envisioning the windows and then pulling together all the elements into some visually stunning displays. Â I didn’t show you, because I want you to go check it out for yourself, but there are some wonderful night time shots of our downtown as well as photos of Parkview Field. Â I almost wish we’d had another week or two because Saturday night, I captured some really beautiful shots of the fireworks. Â I will be posting these on the blog later this week.
As I checked out the windows this past weekend, what they say is really true – you are your own worst critic. Â There are several details in the photos I now wish I’d paid attention to or done a bit differently. Â But overall, with this being the first time seeing my work blown up to this size, I must say, I’m impressed. Â Let me gloat a moment or two!
I’ll also add that the photos on display were captured strictly with the camera. Â No digital manipulation after the fact was done to the photos with the exception of one. Â There is a full-moon over the downtown area. Â This was actually two photos, one of the moon by itself cut and pasted into the photo. Â Shooting the moon, if you’ve ever tried, has some difficulties involved which can be solved doing it the way I did this photo. Â I think it came out pretty nicely.
Anyway, stop by and check them out!
