I am beyond excited to announce that Mamas With Cameras is going to have a photography show at Studio R as part of the first Friday art walk in Fremont- and it will be the Friday before Mother’s day (May 7th)!! I can’t even tell you how exciting this is! We have a few different ways for people to participate in the show, but our goal is going to be 100% participation from all our members. I hope you will join in the fun!
Our March meeting is coming up next Monday, March 29 at 6:30pm at Studio R in Fremont (315 N 36th st, suite 201), and we will be talking through some details of the coming photography exhibit at the meeting.
As a reminder, to participate in the upcoming March meeting you will need print your self-portrait as an 8×10, and bring it to the meeting. I’m really hopeful that this is going to be a really great experience for each person as well as for the group!
[RECAP: Our March assignment, which I borrowed from our good friend Me Ra, is to do a very special Self-Portrait. Your self-portrait will be a picture, where YOU are featured in the image (i.e. not an abstract) that documents and tells a story about where you are in your journey of life right now. This exercise is designed to help us with our storytelling, and as a way for each of us to pause and take stock of where we are right now. You can direct another person to take the picture for you, you just need to set the scene and tone for the image. If you need a partner, please leave a comment on the board- don’t let that be the thing that stops you!]
For our meeting on Monday March 29th, we will do a special exercise with the portraits, and devote the whole meeting time to sharing the experience behind the exercise. Since we will be creating a safe environment to share of ourselves and our portrait creations, everyone is there will be asked to share and receive what others share equally– that is why you’ll need your portrait (printed as an 8×10) to attend the meeting.
I hope to see many of you there, and can’t wait to get rolling on our exhibit! Please leave a comment on the blog if you are planning to display some work, it would be great to get an idea about how many submissions that we will have so we can plan out the space!
Happy shooting everyone!
