My sweet artsy friend, Emily made a proposition to me the other night in quite possibly the most effective way possible…”Hey Kellie, do you want money?”. My response: um, always. The Colton Review is an art and literary journal on campus that features work of people on campus. There is a monetary prize if your work is chosen so after talking to Emily I went a’searching for some of my favorite photos from the past two years. Can we talk about how difficult it was to choose just four?
I have almost a daily routine of reading random photographer blogs, and most recently in more than one place I’ve just gotten random encouragement of there is no right way to do photography. It’s art. I’ve never really considered myself to be an artist… but I guess that is the beauty of art. It’s not really defined. It’s just what you think is pretty. I like that.
I would also like to introduce my watermark. I guess I’ll start using it now? I haven’t really had trouble with people stealing my pictures so not sure how totally necessary it is, but recently a client requested some photos with one, so I had to be creative. I would also like to thank Marshall for giving me calm, cool and collected step-by-step instructions on how to make one. When I get frustrated with computer stuff it is not a pretty sight, and I think he found that calm tones keep me calm.
