New Year… New Middle Grey

Hello!

It’s 2013 and there is a lot of work happening for Middle Grey. There will be shows, and bake sales, and did I mention shows? We’ll be having two shows this spring, one being an open call for Flatbed’s 02 West Gallery, and the second being with a new local San Marcos gallery called Zosima. Keep a careful eye on us because we are definitely going places.

Fun Photo Idea!! Floral Still Life’s In Ice

Hey this is Denise ! So I was reading Photo Technique a few days ago and found this (somewhat) easy photo idea for those of us who are tired of portraits and landscapes especially as we head into Fall/Winter.This interesting approach is used by a Photographer named Ryuijie. While he uses toner on the final prints I feel like you can get some nice images without it.

Photo by Ryuijie

If you want to check it out some more photos go to his website – www.ryuijie.com and click  iceforms in his gallery

Equipment needed:

1 tray (any size really as long as its a few inches deep)

water

Flowers/ Plantlife of your choice

Desk lamp or Sunny window ledge

Optional:

Photoflo

Strobe light

Acrylic stand

Step by Step:

1. Figure out what size tray  your freezer can fit, this could also work if your dorm has an open ice machine (but i wouldn’t recommend it).

2. Pick your flowers/specimens  and place them within the tray and cover with tap water ( If you feel particularly strongly about surface tension you can put some Photo Flo in the water) . If you have a problem with floating simply start out with just enough water to cover the plants  and then once that has frozen pour in more water to your desired level and freeze. (The artist says that the block of ice he ends up with is about three inches thick but feel free to play around)

3. Decide how you want to photograph the resulting ice, there are various different surfaces you will have created, so take your time choosing.  Then if you have the equipment you can place it on a acrylic stand and shine a strobe through the back of it. Or you can go cheap like me and stick it in a windowsill that has good light or use a desk lamp and snap away,just make sure you have a towel to clean up any melted ice.

Rooftop show preview…

Here’s a little preview of the location we secured for our fall semester show, A Different Shade of Grey. This year we wanted to do something… different. So the show will take place on the rooftop of the Texas Rivers Center at the Aquarena Center on October 28th, and is being juried by Barry Stone. And, seeing as how it’s so close to Halloween this year, we actively encourage everyone to have fun and dress up! It’s sure to be a memorable event.
