I’ve finally done it. I’ve finally managed to get a digital camera into my hands (via Fry’s Electronics’ 15-day lease program 😉 :wink:), and I’ve begun taking pictures of my paintings and posting them online in a new section for art that I like to call “Modern Evil: Art“. Everything I post is available for purchase, and all prices are negotiable (within reason). Right now only Iain and myself can post in it; if you’d like to be able to post your own art, please let me know (oh, and Iain, email me for help getting thumbnails to appear in the outliner on the homepage).
I’ve only just begun to put them online, so if there’s a particular painting you’re looking for – don’t worry! It’s on sale, and it should be online soon! I’ve also already determined that several of the pictures I’ve taken need to be re-taken, but I think sunlight is key to capturing some of them properly, so 5AM is not the time to start re-takes. Photos of already-posted paintings (such as ‘best intentions‘ and ‘bleak‘) may be updated without warning. I still haven’t igured out quite how to capture the blacklight effects that some of my paintings have; the digital camera I’m using doesn’t seem to be sensitive enough in low light. Any recommendations on digital cameras that are great in ultra-low-light would be great; I’m not set on this camera yet. (I won’t be set on any camera until I can earn at least its cost back through paintings and posting stuff on eBay.)
Also, don’t miss out on the painting I just finished this weekend, ‘too much baggage‘. Some of you may recognise the inspiration for this painting. Five points to whoever links to the actual origin of the phrase quoted in the painting first!
