Tiny changes

Last night I put the finishing touches on another new site, TinyLens.tv. It will be the new home for all my iPhone photography. So why move it from it’s home here on my lowly blog to it’s own site? Well it’s time to turn it into something bigger. Like my move to launch ImageStudios.tv and ChadWright.tv over the last month, I’m dividing out the various things I in order to give them their own home to live, breath and grow.

And also, it’s so I can do this:

I’ll be releasing two issues of Life Through A Tiny Lens a year. I decided to do it biannually for two reasons. One, I’m impatient and don’t really want to wait an entire year to release something. And two, being that it is print-on-demand, keeping it to 120 pages per issue will make it slightly more affordable each time. It will be available as a 7″ x 7″ book in either soft or hard covers. It will be full of iPhone photos I’ve taken from June 1st through December 31st of last year. It will also include new writing throughout. Moving all this to it’s own website will allow me to brand everything under the TinyLens.tv brand, which I have a few other plans for.

The first issue will be available to order March 1st. Until then I still have a lot of writing, editing and proofing to do on it.

Honestly, when I started taking iPhone photos I never really thought much of it. But over time it has changed how I view the world and photography. I’m proud of the work and hope you enjoy it too. The book will by no means lead to riches and fame, in fact I have very tiny (pun intended) goals for it. For me it’s more about shooting for myself and not a client. I’m moving this year to do more work for me and then drag you guys along for the ride.

Rachel & Kevin's Wedding Day

This may very well be one of my favorite pictures ever. The girls were getting ready for a dance they were doing at the reception. Then Rachel’s grandma decided she wanted in on the action. I’ve got about fifty others but they all lined up so well in this one. You really had to be there to feel the energy of it, but it’s a shot that means a lot.
