Hello All,

Tonight’s blog post is GREAT! Lots of pictures of beautiful furniture. I went to the Des Moines Arts Festival and got to chat with some of the artists. I thought it would make a good post and it did. It is nice to mingle with people who make their living doing what we all love.

The show was wonderful. I am glad you liked the post. As for the quantity of pictures, I don’t just snap them and upload them. I am pretty picky about my photography and I spend a fair amount of time trying to get technically sound images. A typical image can take 15 – 20 minutes of post production work. I think I spent close to 90 minutes on the ones I put up. There were other images, but they just weren’t of the sort of quality that I wanted to show. I feel it is important, especially when showing other people’s work, to present it the best light.

I hope that explains why I went with the quantity which I did.

serius and how hard it is to thoose between those few good pictures we have taken
speciel when we don´t wont to put down any artist that present there best
as phothografs I allso think we are oblygate to present good work if we try to represent
them in other places
