Don’t worry, I’m still slinking around. The summer heat has kicked in discouraging me from any photo expeditions. Although new lion cubs at the National Zoo have been calling my name.
Instead, I’ve begun developing a portfolio of images for sale on Fine Art America. Having an amazing array of images on my hard drive need to find a home in the virtual world. I’m hoping that eventually some sales will trickle through.
It’s a little time consuming and once again I’m faced with my nightmare of a terrible filing system with my images. Too many different computers, too many Lightroom catalogues. Too many photos with a watermark. Why ever did I think I needed to do that? Now I understand why the pros don’t bother with a watermark. Much easier to work with the image than to try to track down the original again to reset without the watermark.
So please bear with me on these not photog days. There are a few outings planned later on in the week, so stay tuned! Bella
The only thing about watermarks for me, Is that I’m finding my stuff stolen more often without it or someone would have the nerve to slap their own on a stolen photo :S
I hate that people steal images, but it happens every day. Right now I’m doing double folders. With and without. Eats my memory space super quick.
oof, I wonder if there’s a way to embed a watermark or signature without it being on the photo itself, like a signature that can’t be forged?
Hi Bella lovely to touch base with you again and glad that all is going well with you on the photographic front. Sounds exciting. Love Corinne x
It’s so thrilling to hear from you Corinne, and I think of you now and again. I always really loved your blog and your life introspection. How are things with you?
I love your photos…It is such much like hot cookies from oven it is so hard to stop with just one. I am really looking forward to the lion cubs.
You are truly awesome Charlie, and thank you so much for the best comment ever !!
Good luck, both in tackling your filing system, and your sales!
It’s been a mess Jerry and takes way too much time. So far, no sales… 🙂
You’re forgiven……good luck with Fine Art America btw…..is it difficult to setup?
Actually it’s pretty darned easy Mark, and for $30 you can have a website which is plenty functional. The only thing is that you can only upload 5 images at a time, and the keywording for an image on any website is always a pain.
Ugh, I feel your pain. .. I haven’t named any photos. My filing system is generally knowing when the flower blooms and then searching by date. Ouch. I keep saying this is a ‘winter’ project. .😜
Yes ! What’s with this “name a photo” thing. I hate trying to come up with some artsy name for each picture. I made the mistake of not getting names of lots of flowers I’ve taken. Big oops!
Beautiful bird in his finest feathers. 🙂
This one was such a character, slinked off to mess with some other macaws.
Good to keep busy. Good luck with the sales.
Famous last words Fatima. I’m too busy and don’t get enough down time. Although I do get to play alot. 🙂
