No, I’m not giving up washing, or giving up soap for personal use, don’t worry. I will be making more soaps, and likely sharing the process, and maybe a recipe or two here and there, but I don’t think I’ll be offering any for sale any time soon. The process of legalizing and approving recipes, … Continue reading Giving up soap
A lovely box of new card designs arrived this morning, and I’ll be adding them to the shop in the next few days. Bear in mind I’ve been adjusting the postage rates, so orders with a small number of cards should work out as free postage. If it doesn’t please let me know and I’ll … Continue reading New cards just arrived!
There’s something about birds, their eyes, the texture of the feathers, the freedom to soar on the wind, or dart about the garden (just out of reach of my mostly incompetent cats). Having handled hens regularly – I have 4 in the garden – and had the chance to feel the lack of weight of … Continue reading Gull fascination.
It’s been quite an eye opener, the different requirements for the various photo selling sites, and there are numerous “How to” guides littered around the internet. This isn’t one of them, this is an anecdotal rambling about part of what I have learned as I started out. First take some images that you are really … Continue reading Preparing images – Focus
With the idea of expanding my potential customer base, and widening areas of trade and sales, I applied to become a Shutterstock contributor, and I was approved! The process was relatively easy, and after a few rejected images – for various reasons – I have a small portfolio available for sale. https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Sarmorrow I can’t find … Continue reading Approved Shutterstock Contributor!
Well, that’s that for another year. The final assignment is handed in and there’s no more editing, nothing more to be done. It’s either good enough, or it isn’t. (this is the moment when I suddenly realise I should have said something in the report, or could have said things better… It’s always the way … Continue reading All done, for this year.
I love this photograph of my cat, which is why I decided to include it in the initial range of greetings cards. I was adjusting and testing some settings on the camera, and she wanted to get in on the action. I did manage to narrowly avoid having her nose print on the lens! But … Continue reading Reflection in a Cat’s eye
It’s almost the end of term, the end of the first year of this 2 year diploma in digital media. We’ve done some bits of image manipulation, a lot of website building – go on, take a look around, you’re browsing the results – and a lot of behind the scenes web work too. There … Continue reading Assignment time.
For years I’d been aware of the Hay Festival, and always thought I’d like to go. You know, one day, just to say I’d been. Oh, yes, I went to Hay, once… But I lived too far away, and the distance, the expense, and 2 young children… It just didn’t happen. Then we moved to … Continue reading Hay Festival 2017 – Twice.
After a lovely day out last week, I have a few images that I think might make striking greeting cards to add to the range, but I’d love some input from you. I’ve added the images to an album on my facebook page, and to a gallery on this website too. All you have to … Continue reading Greeting cards – new ideas
