Phew, it’s been a busy time since I returned from being on the road, I can tell you!
I got back and almost immediately had to head into hospital for some surgery which had been on the cards for a while and of course that means you need time to recuperate, which I have been doing. All is well.
On top of that I have had to select the images for the exhibition and prepare them for the printers. This is a bit different from simply pressing ‘print’ and sending the image to your desktop. The colour profiles are more unusual and the file type different too – the large machines used to print onto plastic board use PDF files as the basis for their work rather than normal image files that photographers usually use.
The good news is that the completed files (produced by me in Adobe InDesign and tidied up for printing by my very able web and design lady Cheryl at Cherylistic) will be in the printer’s hands early next week for proofs.
I am also due to be interviewed on Radio New Zealand next week about the trip and the exhibition. Distance is no barrier if you want to listen in – RNZ is streamed on line at www.radionnz.co.nz and the host is Bryan Crump. I believe that the slot will be Tuesday 24th September at 1910 hrs NZ time.
As if all that was not enough to be going on with, I am working on a refresh of the website too! News to come on that.
The exhibition opens on 17th October and runs for 10 days so anyone in NZ who wants to come along would be most welcome. I intend to produce a book from the trip as well, and to place the exhibition images on line once the Kokomai Festival is over so those not able to come and see it in person will at least be able to get a flavour of it.
I will leave you with one of the images that ALMOST made the cut to get in!
