A Year at RedBubble

It's been a little over a year now since I joined RedBubble - an art community.

I am enjoying my membership there and have gained some close friends as well as several acquaintances. Many of the photos that I have posted here (like the photo above) are also found in my RedBubble site. However, they are available as hires photos because you can sell art works in the site.

I also enjoy joining the many challenges in RB because I am challenged to go out of my comfort zone in terms of my photography.

I am happy to say that I have won some of the challenges but of course I also lost some. However, I can say that everything is fun! fun! fun!

Not only that, I have also sold some works (cards) in RedBubble. I am just happy that somebody appreciated my work well enough to part with his/her money and buy some of my cards. Right now, my most popular work is this:
http://www.redbubble.com/people/lensbaby/works/7193070-doing-small-things-with-great-love?c=81937-sold

It's a photo of some grasses which I coupled with a quote from Mother Teresa. Somebody loved it so much and bought 40 copies of this. Imagine that! I danced with joy when I learned about it. I don't even know who the buyer is so I thanked him/her publicly in RedBubble.

So this is how far I have gone in my photography now.

You can see a running slide show of my works in RedBubble in the links section at the right side of this blog.

Playing with Gradients Again

I am not yet through playing with gradients and blending. I came up with this happy result while doing so.






This is really so much fun and the results sometimes surprise me. What do you think?

By the way, there is a bigger version of this photo in my RedBubble site. Please click on the following link

Happy Easter Using Gradient Tool

I just recently discovered the beauty of using the "gradient tool" in Photoshop and I had fun playing with some of my photos and creating fun cards.

Here is an example:


I love the softness created by the gradient. I actually created several layers here and then used the gradient tool for the final blending of the layers.

Have a Happy Easter!!!

Using Textures, Layers and Blend Modes

I have never tried using textures in my photos. I just learned how to use them lately and have been doing some experiments. I am enjoying this new found way to create a new look of my photos. I did not realize it's just easy. Either you use some already existing textures or you can even make your own textures.

I discovered that the technique is just easy.  You just have to use the blend modes in the photo editing software, like Photoshop.

I have written a step by step article on using layers and blends in my hub in HubPages. The link is here if you are interested. How-to-Change-the-Mood-of-Your-Photos-Use-Layers-and-Blending-Options

I am just sharing a photo that I created by using this technique. Try it and have fun!
