THE ARTISTIC LIFE – Living the creative life in everything we do

Spring plants and hanging baskets
Our “Springified” Deck

Hope you had a great weekend. I was able to accomplish what I set out to do for this weekend, despite some setbacks….devastating tornadoes and storms were in our area and knocked our power out for awhile, but luckily, Carrollton was spared from the tornado’s path. I feel for those who weren’t so lucky, though…

After our local garden center cleaned up its mess from the storm, I picked out some plants for hanging baskets and potted plants to “Springify” our deck (see above).

I also entered photographs into a photography competition…I don’t usually give much stock to these competitions, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed….

Studio setup for homemade photobox for microstock photography

My studio setup for homemade photobox for microstock photography

I worked on my stock photography photobox setup (above), and took a few photos which I submitted to Fotolia. The results on whether or not they are selected usually takes a couple of days. If they’re not accepted, I’ll try my backup microstock site, BigStockPhoto. My setup includes a macro lens on my Canon 50D, a tripod, macro ring light for a little frontlighting of the products, my homemade photobox, and two hand-me-down lamps used for side lighting and are  currently not serving any other purpose. I think some additional light would benefit this setup, so next time I will find another lamp that is just sitting around. Not bad for FREE – using materials I already had.
