During the course of the week I post on Twitter and Facebook items which do not always make it on the blog. Based on some feedback, I have decided to do a weekly rewind of some items which I posted or shared elsewhere.
Last weekend I was in Philadelphia for the Strictly Business 3 conference, with the above view from my hotel room. This conference covered the business side of photography at all levels and was a great experience. Getting back late on Sunday, I was energized from the experience and was following up on networking and new tasks for most of the week from this event. I have come across a couple of recaps of the events by photographers Felicia Perretti and Brian Kaldorf if you would like to find out more about this conference.
Today is the first Friday of the month, which means artwalk time here in Denver. Having a Photography Gallery in Denver, I am biased to the Tennyson Arts District Art Walk. As the Month of Photography kicks off with a bang, gallery nrc is featuring a collection of juried images from the Denver Photowalk Meetup Group. This show continues though March 12th.
You may be familiar with Camera Obscura here in Denver which after 32 years will be closing at the end of April. Starting later this month will be the final show which will include the life’s work of Hal Gould the director of the gallery as well as a retrospective of Loretta Young-Gautier. Currently a silent auction is taking place on some selected pieces of work in addition to a book liquidation sale.
If you have not yet made a comment on the Lightroom 3 blog post, today is the last day to do so and be eligible for the free book drawing. Even a quick ‘Hi’ will get you entered.

Lastly… my aha moment from SB3 last week was “Be Useful, Be Specific, Be Nice” as stated by Colleen Wainwright during her keynote. This is just something so simple, obvious and needed.
