As you know I left my studio space at 924 Anacapa Street. It’s sad, I know. But for some crazy reason, this whole moving thing is getting better, so it seems. It started when my home landladies gave me “go-ahead” on remodeling a flood damaged bedroom which I quickly converted into a shooting space/area mentally, and into reality by next day. SO TOTALLY NOT EXPECTED.
It’s been seven working days and it’s almost done. CAN’T WAIT >>o<< Tomorrow, finishing up with electrical and painting. I think that should be it. I’m gonna have “unofficial” Shooting Space/Area Grand Opening Shootout with just few other SBJPG members on Friday (that’s tomorrow!!).
Last days (nights) of my studio on 924 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara CA … but that’s whole different story. カリフォルニア州 サンタバーバラにあった９２４アナカパ通りスタジオ最後の日々夜々。。またそれは別な話し。

Working into night
One of the member has just purchased a spanking new strobe system that he is itching to try it out. I know how he feels. We can shoot something fun, break-in gear (recycle time, output capacity, quality check) and admire the spanking new shooting space/area. I will plan several workshops throughout next week leading up to the official grand opening workshop on Sunday. All I got to say is, “wow”.
(Please pray for ‘wet paint no more’ for Friday!!!! Thank you!)
Color sampling. I will have multicolored wall of love and heart (by justin b)
This is going to have to work well because I will need a space to store all my stuff while I’m gone for couple of years, so this would be a perfect place for it once I make it into a storage space (yet another transformation!). Nice knowing that I have a place to shoot right away when I return, although I plan to visit back at least once 1/2 way through my time off.
