New Images on the WayPosted: August 28, 2010
At last, I feel like I’ve got my photography mojo back! I had been feeling really quite down lately, but last night a lovely lady ordered a custom print for me, so I’m excited again! I don’t ever want my love of photography to be hindered by whether or not I sell anything, and I unfortunately fell into that trap over the last week or so. NEVER AGAIN. I love photography because it fulfills me and makes me whole; whether or not someone chooses to purchase one of my images should NEVER EVER EVER have any affect on how I feel about my love of taking pictures. I am resolved (resolved!) to not lose myself in the somewhat silly business of making money on something I love.
In any case, I spent this morning working on some new images for the shop and I just now sent them off to the lab for printing! (Well, they aren’t really new; I actually took them right before leaving on vacation and this is the first chance I’ve had to work on them.) Every single image I’m getting is going to be a metallic print, which I’ve written about before. Seriously, I have never been so amazed or wowed at a print as I have been with these metallic prints. I wish I could put into words how colorful, fun, and vivid they are, but I don’t know that I can! I ordered a few just for my own walls, and I’m going to go look at some frames later this week. My walls need covering!
I hope everyone out there is having a lovely weekend. It’s finally cooled down below 90 degrees for the first time in over 50 days (!) today, and I am enjoying the relatively cool weather. I simply cannot wait until fall!
