Rue Magazine Issue 3 just launched this week, and I was especially eager to see this one!

On pages 60+61 of the current issue you’ll find A Skill-Sharing Jamboree in NYC, organized and designed by You + Me* Lifestylists, featuring a few New York artists, including me!

I was asked to participate by demonstrating a still life shoot using my 6×7 medium format camera with film and Polaroid. I taught exposure, how to use a hand held light meter, using fill cards, etc..

It was a fun-filled afternoon at Top of the Garden loft in Manhattan, beautifully styled with florals by Blossom and Branch and pretty cupcakes, drinks and hors d’oeuvres by Peter Killy of KG Fare. The group of talented artists included Brooklyn Soda Works, Janelle Sing, Poppies and Posies, Hither and Tither, Mooseherd Creative, Laura Splan and Nina Isabella.

We got to dress up, have a couple of cocktails and give a little tutorial.

Perfect day!

Happy January Wedding Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Julia and Daniel!

It was last year, this month, that I photographed the lovely couple at the Foundry. In honour of their anniversary, I'm posting a few of my favorite pictures from their day.

I had a lovely time over New Years visiting Palm Springs for the first time! It was beautiful, and so much fun. Although it was chilly, it was super-relaxing and photographically inspiring. It was so nice to be there, after having just lived through the "Snowpocalypse" back east.

Chandler and I arrived on New Years Eve and spent time with our friends in their gorgeous new home. It was here that I made a lot of these pictures on film. Their living room was filled with awesome furniture and knick knacks (an Eames rocking chair, an ultra-comfy chaise made of seat belts, and a rock & roll Elvis nutcracker to name a few). Upon entering you see this plus a view of mountains and fruit trees through giant windows.

My other pictures were shot in various locations around the city of Palm Springs, including at the Parker Palm Springs and Ace hotels. Thanks to Jonathan Adler for designing much of the decor at the Parker, gorgeous!

Image of the Month: Kentucky Thanksgiving

KarenWise_KentuckyLogCabin_ImageofMonth

These photographs are from my recent trip to Ashland, Kentucky where I spent Thanksgiving with Chandler and his mother, Rita.

Having spent the last five years gut renovating a pre civil war log cabin (what she calls her “Ole Kentucky Home”) Rita recently retired from Philadelphia to her hometown of Ashland and her cozy new cabin.

We visited for the first time over Thanksgiving and were amazed at how beautifully she restored her new home.

I really enjoyed my week there, and meeting all of their warm and hospitable extended family.

Sneak Peek: Kentucky Thanksgiving

I was so excited to pick up my Kentucky film from the lab today. I LOVE the prints and scans. Here's the first diptych I made, with Rita's log cabin at sunrise on the left.

More to come…
