and i do hair

Originally uploaded by d kelly photography
i have been doing hair for over 30 years... cough ... yea i'm THAT old !

but now when people ask me what i " do " i want to say photography ! but in reality i am a master hairdresser/ educator and i really should not deny that part of my life. i love doing hair, and teaching especially the group i'm teaching now. their so motivated and interested in learning.
recently i helped write an article on the "consultation " and making a connection with a client. as soon as it gets published i will post a link.

i went to the New York Photo Festival yesterday in Dumbo Brooklyn, all in all it was interesting untill i went to a lecture by Penelope Umbrico and Joachim Schmid, both these " photographers " use images from flicker for installations.

Penelope took the sun part of sunset images from thousands of images to create this installation , she claims and i quote .....

"This is a project I started when I found 2,303,087 pictures of sunsets searching the word “sunset on the Flickr site. I took just the suns from these pictures and made snapshot prints of them. "

she also claims the images she took were of the sun and could not be owned, i say then she dosen't own that installation ! is she sharing the commission ?

it was pure bullshit.

but so are a lot of things, for instance on the subject of posting on the internet ... when i view someone's photostream and i see something i like i comment , especially if i know them on a personal basis. if i don't like something or have nothing good to say i usually say nothing and make no comment .
but i upload several images to several groups some of which i actually get together with for outings, only to get minimal comments to none.
now i know my images are good or i would not post them !
wtf is up with that ?

i decided not to upload many images anymore and concentrate on MY work ..

save the best images for my website and printing.

the quiet life camera club

my submission was accepted !

this is amazing

as of today its viewed 1369
voted yes 292 times
favorited 71 times ( kinda low )

i really wonder what's going to happen . i wouldn't be surprised if they didn't publish it. even though "I" think its a damn good image and fits the theme in every way.
if they don't chose it somethings wrong.
i wanna get published dammit !!!!!

on another note ... i've been shooting portraits again.

i listened to joyce tenneson yesterday, her self portraits are so inspiring ..maybe its time to do a series of myself.

i can get so distracted by others.
i'm learning to trust myself more.
its so unimaginable how much jealousy is in the world. including myself at times. but what i'm learning is, its human and its emotion. emotion = energy in motion, and it feeds on negativity.

but i find some people like to hurt you with it.
we as humans don't like to support one another, we're all afraid of someone getting something we don't have.

but in reality there is enough for all of us. its called abundance ( i remind myself )
