Spring cleaning my portfolio

Just thought I would let everyone know that I am doing a bit of a spring clean on my RedBubble gallery.

I have been removing images which have had very low views. The reasons for doing this are two-fold.
1) It makes it easier for me to manage the images and my bubble site.
2) Potential customers don’t have to wade through average images to find the fantastic ones.

A few of the images I removed were marked as favourites by one or two people so unfortunately it will no longer appear in their list.

This cleaning may continue for the next week or so as I continue to review my images. You may also see some of the older ones make a reappearance but they will most likely be cropped differently or have something else done to them.

Off-RedBubble sale

Last week a family member contacted me to get a canvas print of one of my photos. No profit in it for me but it is great to have another one of my photos on display.

They ordered a 25.4×30.4cm print of Ripples in the sand which will be hanging right near their front entry for all to see.

Sales and features

Here is a summary of the last week for me.

I have sold one more t-shirt, once again it is the I love my geek t-shirt. This is the second one I have now sold.

I have also had three features.


Ripples in the sand was featured in the Natural textures group. Thanks goes out to the hosts of that group.


Stream crossing was featured in a new group called Which Way?. Thanks goes out to the hosts of this new group.


Milkweed bug on yellow rose was featured in a new group called Bug Hunt!. Thanks goes out to the hosts of this new group.

New gear has been purchased

To allow me to do better indoor photography I have just purchased some new photography gear.

1. Canon 50mm f/1.8 II Lens
2. Canon 430EX II flash
3. Stofen Omni-Bounce Diffuser.

The 50mm lens is quick and sharp, allowing me to take indoor shots without always having to use the flash. It also provides a shallow depth of field giving a nice blurred background. If I do have to use the flash I can now use the 430EX instead of the built in flash. The faster recharge time will be nice and I will be able to bounce the flash from the roof when doing things indoor.

Overall, this kit will make sure I no longer get frustrated with indoor, low light photography. The cost of this gear including postage was $551
