Well, I created an account, introduced myself in the forums and have now uploaded my first images to my portfolio. I guess I have officially inserted myself into this community.
I found RedBubble while searching the internet for photo contests. That search developed out of excitement over a few images I recently took with my first digital camera, a Canon Rebel xti which I have now owned for about 6 weeks. Those images should be uploaded this coming weekend when I have more time.
Until now, I didn’t know that a community such as this even existed. I have just barely begun exploring RedBubble. But what I have found here is very interesting. I think I will enjoy this community. I believe I will be inspired here. Inspired to explore photography and graphics. Inspired to try new things and learn new skills. All that and the opportunity to share my images with others and possibly even sell something occasionally.
For those of you who take the time to view my images, “thank-you”. Please feel free to give me feedback. I am not a professional photographer and have no formal training (ie; college or apprenticeship) in this artform. So anything that others can teach me is welcome.
Over the next week or so, I hope to upload a few of the images taken on my recent trip to Washington, DC, with my two St. Bernards.
