Photography and prints

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot more photography, and after consulting with a couple of friends (who happen to be great artists), I decided to start a Society6 page in case anyone would like to have a print of some of the photos I’ve taken.

So here is the link: society6.com/joshcarples (and I highly recommend checking out Monarch Images and Studio Nil while you’re on the site.)

Below are some samples of some of my prints:

Guitar Pull and more!

Tonight, I’ll be joining Joseph Johnson and Mandi Rae at the Cloverdale Playhouse in Montgomery for the monthly guitar pull. I’ll be playing mostly new songs that I have written since Ghost of a Town was released. Actually, the last time I played this event was just after its release, in November 2013.

It’s a fun event, and I have actually gotten to photograph the last two. Click here for photos from April. Click here for May.

In film-related news, this Thursday, June 25, a short film I was in will be screening in Atlanta. It was part of the Atlanta 48-Hour Film Project, and our team was sponsored by Indie Film LOOP and led by director Trishunda Mooney.

With this type of project, you are given four things on a Friday evening – film genre, prop, character name, and a phrase – and you have to write, cast, film, edit, score, and turn in a finished film by Sunday night that is between four and seven minutes.

The finished short, titled “The Switch,” will screen this Thursday at Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema in Atlanta, GA, in Group E, at 7:15 p.m.

In other news, here is a really brave blog post that I would encourage you to read about depression and anxiety. It’s titled “The Semicolon Project,” and also, if you haven’t done so already, check out Project 1 in 4.

Who needs sleep anyway, right?

Schedule:

  • Fri: wake at 7 a.m.
  • Sat: sleep at 5 a.m.; wake at 8:30 a.m.
  • Sun: sleep at 7:30 a.m.; wake at 10:30 a.m.

No, those times are not mistakes. I didn’t switch “a.m.” for “p.m.” It was just what ended up being a filming schedule from this past weekend, and I loved every delirious minute of it.

The short film I mentioned last month – Four Thousand Wings – went into production this past weekend. It was a four-man operation – Adam Davila, Nick Patterson, Eric Hoehn, and me – as we served in roles both behind and in front of the camera. Many thanks to them for being on board and making this happen.

We filmed in Selma, AL, mostly in the historic St. James Hotel. Editing will start soon, probably after we’re able to catch up on some sleep. Updates soon!

It begins! #fourthousandwings #indie #film #filmmaker #filmmaking #selma #alabama
