As July quickly passes me by I have found very little time to focus on any art projects. Summers are busy with travel, work, and school. Quick tip, never take a statistics class in the summer, it sucks. So, I decided to break out the camera that I have been neglecting, and went on an evening walk after a round of intense thunderstorms blew through. Here are a few pictures I took on my walk. I worked on a few things during this photo adventure. First, I wanted to move closer to my subject. I often find that I take a picture from more of a distance and crop the image later. Next, I wanted to take the picture as close to my mental image as possible. This means I really wanted to do as little editing in Lightroom and Photoshop as possible, so I used the settings on my camera to create the feel I wanted. For the most part it worked out, but I still had to do some adjustments in Lightroom.
I did continue my merchandise journey. I got a round of stickers printed of my “Little Bee” drawing (found in my last blog post). I’m going to redesign my site this fall, and add in a store where you can easily purchase any of the pictures I’ve take, posters I’ve created, or stickers I’ve made.
