This past Friday, I was blessed enough to be one of several photographers participating in the Indy Meetup Photo Club’s annual gallery show at the Indiana Landmarks Center in downtown Indianapolis. The theme for this year’s show is “Historic Indiana…It’s Many Faces.”

I ended up displaying a total of 12 images ranging from a historic church just outside of downtown Indianapolis to some famous faces from previous Indianapolis 500 races. It was interesting to see how the other photographers took on this theme. 

Last Wednesday was the hanging of the artwork. I had some help from my Creative Director, Laura, in getting all of the images hung on the wall space. (The below image is from the Eric Scott Miller Photography Instagram feed.)

Of course, I got my photo snapped during the night, too.

Laura and I left the gallery on Wednesday and I immediately felt a sense of relief as we left the Landmarks Center. The light breeze took the stress of the show preparation and blew it off my shoulders. All that was left to do was wait to see how the overall show—and, of course, my images—would be received by those attending the First Friday show.

Thankfully it was quite a success. There was a steady stream of people coming in to the Landmarks’ Rapp Gallery looking at and discussing the images on display from the various photographers. It was great to see the work of other photographers, as well.

Of course, I couldn’t let the night get away without a photo of me with 11 of my 12 images on display. (Number 12 was filling a gap in another portion of the gallery.)

I am taking the week off from updating the blog. 

This Friday, I am participating in a First Friday art gallery show and need to focus my efforts on editing images, matting prints, and framing them. Needless to say, the dining room table is going to look more and more like a framing gallery this week.

Watch for a new post on Monday, October 5th.

As you may have noticed, this year has brought several changes to the Eric Scott Miller site. The latest change is the redesigned blog. It ties in a unified color scheme  with the rest of the site and changes quite a bit on the backend. (No, I won’t bore you with all of the technical details.)

What this means, though, is it will be easier for me to maintain and (hopefully) publish more blog posts around here.
