Introduction - New to RedBubble

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my part of RB, and thanks for visiting.

I have lived in Australia from my 9th – 14th year, and love seeing all these photos of Australian things and landscapes… Brings back very nice memories of all the summer holidays which I spent travelling through Australia with my parents.

I have uploaded a taste of some of my work, and have had a look around on RB. I have the feeling its a lot smaller than Flickr for example, but a lot cleaner and more professional looking. Im getting tired of the invitations to join groups on flickr and the spam of “awards” that arent really awards and similar things on flickr.

Also I like the fact that it will be possible to sell images on RB, which I have not yet seen on other similar sites. I have contacted RB, and they informed me that it will soon (24th of may) be possible to sell photos internationally on an updated version of the site! Not only is that very cool, but its a nice birthday present since the 24th is my birthday :)

As you may have noticed I try to keep my work up to a high standard, I am a bit of a perfectionist. I like to fine tune my work and edit photos a lot usually. Most of my photos are also HDR. I fell in love with the painting like effects that can be created with HDR. Of course a great part in the dreaminess of some of my photos are also due to photoshopping. What I also like about HDR is that you can prevent bright white skies if you expose the landscape correctly, or too dark landscape if you expose the sky correctly.

I have a GND (Gradient Neutral Density) filter, as I believe its called, and have experimented a bit with it, but I prefer HDR a lot more.

So, since I love HDR, if you have any questions about HDR, feel free to ask me.

Looking forward to becoming a small part of RB!

Regards,
Christiaan
