First ever Sale !!!!!

Well, a bad day that kept getting worse was offset by my first ever sale!

To say i am ecstatic and over the moon is an understatment

Thank you Karen, you saved my day.

Have you ever ?

Have you ever wished you could show someone themselves through your (or others) eyes ? Ever wished you could take there doubt and disbelief in themself and firmly eradicate it ?

If you know how to do that, please let me know

Irony

community inspiration interview

Well since being featured on the redbubble homepage, I feel “famous” enough to do an interview! lmfao – no i dont take myself that seriously at all, it just looks like fun…

Questions:
1. What’s your favourite artistic tool or piece of equipment (past, present or dream)?
Past would be my old airbrushes
Present would have to be my trusty Pentax dslr, aka Kristin

This is my simplified version of what i have learned so far…

At any given time the “correct” exposure for the photograph you are aiming to take is a balance of three variables:

1500 Views

As of this morning, i have had 1508 views (spread over 106 images)
For me thats quite a milestone, by others standards that may not be so good, but I get pleasure out of knowing the work I have done, and effort I have put in has been seen by someone. If they have gotten pleasure from it, all the better.

So to all of those who have taken a look at my gallery, faved a photo, thank you!
