Where Did January Go?!!!
For Pete's sake. So much has happened last month. I started classes (two Flash classes teaching animation techniques and ActionScript coding) and a digital photography class!!! My brain cells are being stretched into really odd shapes (or at least that's what it feels like):P
And even though I've had a few "rejections" of late, I am trying to stay positive. It's the risk I take when I put artwork/design work out there for people to judge. But I can't make art to please others, it has to first satisfy my creative needs and if someone else finds it "worthy" that would be icing on the cake.
For now, I need to focus on my class projects and my Artfest artwork.
I also need to apologize for failing to stick to my plan of a weekly post. Obviously that is not happening. So it's back to my previous schedule of posting when I have something to share and to make up for my bad, here are some photos from my new digital camera (Nikon D3000):
a series of pod portraits
so excited to see how close I could get to a subject
found this interesting word combination on a boat trailer
a 2011 goal fulfilled - replacing burlap with real sand in my shell table
my furry baby
All the photos were shot on manual setting, with auto focus engaged. I have never had a formal class in operating a SLR camera. I used to have a Nikon FG20 old school SLR many years ago. But when the digital point-and-shoot cameras came on the scene I was hooked. I love how you can shoot away and not have to worry about changing film rolls or not knowing how the shot turned out. I AM SO EXCITED!!!
