Hi everyone, I found my way around my new Facebook Admin page and wish to invite everyone to have a look and participate in the proposed project. This is for "accidental " images that appear by themselves on your palette, kitchen table or in the shadows of your curtain. I often find them and am now selling prints and posters of my favourite ones. They are a lot of fun and often can be inspiration for serious paintings etc.
Apologies for my wild words on previous posts, but I tried to stir things up a bit so I know what I am dealing with. You guys are too cool for me. Enough of that now, it is not the real me.
I am hoping to create a fun page where we upload interesting images we see and capture, one way or another. The best ones can be kept personal as inspiration for our next painting or part thereof...but please share any which you deem appropriate. My website is http:alankeating.artweb.com/. My Admin Facebook address is http:www.facebook.com/ashacha88. Hope to see you there.

Sounds fun. Great feed for the muse
Can't open the urls...can you check the addresses, copy, then click on URL and insert between the brackets

That is, copy and paste exactly what shows in the browser of the page you want a link too...so that won't include http..but automatically included when inserted into URL
....ummm...does that make sense {: > )) ?

Now you have touched on something I love to do...crop elements and capture transient moments that make great photographic or digital art works in their own right. I'm just going to try for an image upload here...cropped from a digital doodle. I haven't been able to up load images here for ages - keeps coming up with a too large notice (or something like that) .

Thanks Helen...hopefully this computer function learning curve will be a few months affair. Will try that. Yeah I really hope we all contribute a little...but a few would be good too. If folks prefer we could create a non personal library, whatever. Lots to learn about pixal settings, resolution, what translates from an A4 image to a A2 image etc. Easy when you know the territory...busy doing a photo shoot now, regards Al

Amazing that a well experienced photographer and I got caught taking a bunch of unusable photos where side lighting on textured paint was the issue. One needs diffused lighting, preferably top lighting, for the optimal effect when taking photos of such works. The lighting must be even, not too bright. Live and learn I guess.
PS; I meant top lighting if the image is on the floor, and the camera on a tri-pod facing down...Any other tips would be appreciated.
