I am all systems GO to resume my Rhinebeck Style photo project next weekend. Stop by and get shot in all your festival fiber fineness !! Saturday & Sunday, too*
*It says Saturday but I'll plan to be there for the early part of Sunday. Or if Saturday is bad weather...longer on Sunday.
I realized I wanted to make a collection of all those fabulous outfits, for the permanent record.
So in 2010 I set up my backdrop and made 128 portraits. I blogged about it a little here.
This year, I'm continuing. I hope you'll be part of it!
WHEN: You can find me with my backdrop, set up by the 4H snack bar, most of Saturday. Depending on the weather, I might be there for part of Sunday too. I'll tweet what I'm doing about this @galezucker and also post to my FB page. It should look a little bit like below, from last time.
This year I am thrilled to be setting up the backdrop by the animal barns on Friday, because it wouldn't be Rhinebeck without the livestock and those who raise them. If you are there with your animals, please look for me Friday afternoon and come strike a pose with a woolly/fibery critter!
I would also love to shoot some vendors-- they are so busy..but we'll try!
this little spread in The Knitter, a UK magazine, in 2011 is the only place any of the photos appeared
WHAT am I going to do with all these photos? I don't know yet. It might make a cool ebook. Or real book, or booklet, or one-off magaziney thing... I'll email everyone once I've got it figured out.
WHY have I not done something yet with the 2010 shoot? Well..when I first shot it, I wasn't sure what my goal was. (I still don't. That's the fun of a personal project, as we photographers like to call them). I was neck deep in working on my book CraftActivism with Joan Tapper, and busy with my usual work as a commercial photographer. So I put the files aside till last year, when I realized I wanted to continue and maybe get a more rounded collection, with animals and vendors and volunteers. Then..we'll see.
FYI Even if you posed last time, come by again. It'd be fun to have 2 years' of outfits, right?
