Feel free to critique my work! The only way to learn is to see one's failings and then try to correct them. I would like my photography skill level to grow. :)

Contests Galore

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 5, 2010, 5:59 PM


I am having fun using my new camera. I haven't unlocked all it's awesomeness yet, but I am still learning. I'm actually going to watch the two DVDs that came with the camera kit to see if it tells me anything I don't already know.
I'm going to be posting up some new pics soon, after I tweak them a tad in PS.
So I have been entering quite a few contests lately. It's been more for the fun of it than actually thinking I could win.
Yesterday I painted an oil on canvas of myself turning into the Chesire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. It was for the contest, but alas, I did not get it uploaded in time. By the time my computer finally put it up on the download form, my computer clock read 12:02 AM... 2 minutes past the deadline. I was pretty much heartbroken... but I got over it. I am just happy that I did it now. I have been wanting to paint with oil for a while now. I'm glad I finally conquered my fear of complete failure, and just did it.
My mom has a friend who does watercolor paintings that look amazing. She's a really sweet lady and I think she will teach me how she does it if I ask her. I hope to do that sometime this summer. :)
I enjoy the idea of broadening my abilities as an artistic person.
