It's 2014 - have you made your New Year's Resolution yet? Joe and I went to Kauai for our vacation this year - which was wonderful by the way - and I'm back and feeling refreshed and excited for 2014. I had a lot of time to reflect on what's important to me and my business - new ideas for where I want to take Taura Horn Photography, reviving old ideas and making them happen, and ways to make great things greater. Add LOTS of crafting/diy projects, roller derby, more time with friends and you pretty much have my 2014 New Year's Resolutions! Here are three exciting things I want to share with you all:
1 - Album! I LOVE albums. And I happen to know how to make them from scratch - from constructing the cover and spine, printing the photos, making the bookcloth, putting it all together and every step in-between. It's been on my mind for a while now, and I officially decided that this is my year to develop a line of handmade albums and boxes for my clients. I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you all as I go along!
2 - It's all about the WEDDINGS! This year I'm fully committing to only shooting weddings. I have all these... IDEAS that I want to do that I get distracted from when I'm constantly switching gears between all that I do. I want to sharpen my personal vision and keep this wedding photography stuff fresh, non-stagnate and decidedly "Taura". Introduce some new, faster, cooler ways to work to get the job done even better. Throw in a few commercial jobs with local businesses, and I'll have my happy hands full:)
3 - I now have a special gallery where you can see and purchase some of my personal work. You can choose to have them individually printed by hand by yours truly on beautiful Hahnemuhle paper, or printed as a canvas wrap. Some black and white work will have the option to be hand printed ziatypes - stay tuned for a video about the process! Each print or wrap will be signed, making it super special and super cool:)
Enjoy some of my favorite photos from Kauai! And yes, you can purchase these and more in the gallery:) These were all shot on Portra 400 with a Fujifilm GF67 - best travel camera ever! Developed and scanned by Miller's Photo Lab.
