M__

It’s late now on Thursday night, so tonight’s posting will be a bit of a quicky.

The three photos I’m putting up now are images I made of the beautiful M__ on the beach at Malibu last summer. I scanned them last night. The way I usually work is to get a model set up in a good spot and then do variations of poses in that spot. Often I’ll just choose one to print or post – the one that I think is the best of the bunch – but on this occasion I decided to scan three and post all of them.

I’ve been communicating with M__ lately and she’s hoping to visit New York sometime toward the end of April. I’m hoping I’ll be able to work with her again at that time.

Otherwise, I’ve been thinking about how to best get my negatives organized here. I keep them in loose leaf binder boxes, but I really don’t have a good filing system. When I want to look for the film for a particular photo shoot, I have to go through the randomly arranged boxes and hope to find what I’m looking for.

I began a few years ago to organize things by putting a label on the side of each box listing the numbers of the pages contained within plus brief descriptions of the subject matter. Sadly, I never kept up with it – and the fact that my eyes can no longer read anything that small at that distance certainly does not help matters!

What I need to do now is to sit down and go through all of the boxes, assigning a number to each box and making note of the contents and the dates of the photos. I’ll have to keep a written record of this to consult, of course, and label the boxes with those numbers and probably the contents, too.

It’ll be a bit of work to do, but in the end, it should make looking for something – and finding it! – a lot easier.
