Indiegogo Campaign Follow Up!

Last week, I was amazed by how many people came out of the woodwork during the final hours of the Brownie In Motion campaign and showed their support. Although we did not meet our goal, we did raise almost $4,000 for the project! Thank you so much for believing in this project! Everyone who publicly contributed has now been added to the Brownie In Motion Donor Hall of Fame on stakacs.com

Camera obscura featured on Good Day Columbus!

On Sunday, I was interviewed by Alissa Henry from Good Day Columbus about my camera obscura project, Target Six-16, which was being displayed at Nationwide Starry Night in Westerville.  It was pretty early in the morning and my first time on TV so I was a bit nervous, do I look it?!
