The Perils of Amateur Art Photography

Okay, this is going to be a quick one.

First off, I started a SaatchiArt.com account a few days ago. HERE IS THE LINK.

Second, in the interest of putting up more than one painting, and putting up paintings I’m willing to part with for less than $1.5K, here is the process I developed this morning while the clouds were still out:

2014 07 20 setup A sml 2014 07 20 setup B sml Deliberation 2014 - mounted A sml Density 2014 - mounted A sml Deliberation 1of5 2014 - mounted A

The sun is out now, so the light won’t be as even, and thus would cast shadows, which I already have plenty of. So, no more photos today.

What I really need is a light box or two and a camera with really good resolution and manual lenses so I can set the ISO properly and not get a lot of autofocus nonsense. I also need space to set all of this up in, so I’m not shooting outdoors with the threat of rain. This is going to take money, folks.

So I come back to my crowdfunding idea, WHICH NO ONE COMMENTED ON; is there any interest in pledging for me to paint a graphic novel featuring the spirits of Lucky and Charlie on a spirit world adventure?

Time to check the sausage. Thank you for reading. Comments more than welcome; in fact, they’re compulsory. COMMENT, dammit!

  • I commented on your FB post but I’ll comment here too since it’s COMPULSORY =) if you’re available late in the evening on tuesday for TTT lets meet up and talk options for this. i was in the very same situation as you about 6 years ago and we can sketch some things out and walk through some steps. problem solving DIY photostudios can be really fun if we put our minds to it.

Don't be shy. Tell me what you really think, now.
