  • Hello everyone, how are you doing? ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been away for a few days, spending some time with friends in Faro and Lisbon! I have a lot more photos to upload, but for now, please enjoy this beautiful sunset I shot two days ago! The photos have a lot of flare but I still think they look okay! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hey Diogo ๐Ÿ˜€ Good to see you back! Did you have a good time there? That’s a stunning sunset! I can’t choose between the colored and b-w ones, both are great, each for their own reasons! I like how with f/29 you captured the rays of the sun so clearly! I love that effect ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Thank you very much Alex! I’m really happy with how the Sun looks! ๐Ÿ˜€

        I had a great time in Faro and Lisbon with my friends, they’re all great people and I wish I could have stayed there a few more days ๐Ÿ˜€ It was an awesome experience but it’s always good to be back home! ๐Ÿ™‚ And how are you my friend?? How’s your campaign going? ๐Ÿ˜€

        • ๐Ÿ˜€ That is great! At least you could take a few days off and enjoy, that’s something! I’m doing very well, kinda tired to be honest cause the campaign requires a ton of work but it is going very well. I had some amazing people contribute a lot of money but i do wish that more people, strangers, would take even just a postcard ๐Ÿ™‚ It would be great to send prints all over the world ๐Ÿ˜€ So, as you can tell, i’m spending most of the day in front of my computer but last week i had the chance to get away for 3 days and enjoy the sea…You’ll see more of that in my next posts ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Haha yes but I’m still really tired as well ๐Ÿ˜€ I took a whole bunch of photos that i’m going to upload soon, some of them are actually good! xD Ah yes that would be awesome! I wish I could sell prints too! ๐Ÿ˜€ I actually created an account in Redbubble because of you hehe! I’m going to see what i can do to help ๐Ÿ™‚ But nevertheless, you have my support! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes I will! ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • Hehe that’s the bad thing about us photographers, even our vacations are work! But i cannot imagine going anywhere just to relax and not having my camera with me. I’d go insane ๐Ÿ˜›
              The way indiegogo works, you don’t need any money upfront. I’m waiting for the campaign to end to make the prints and then send them out to people ๐Ÿ™‚ Redbubble is cool, the only thing i don’t like is that you don’t have any control over the prints. Some friends from USA have purchased a few of my prints and they were very pleased with the quality so i guess they must be good ๐Ÿ™‚ RB is a community though, so you need to spend some time, joining groups and putting your photos there, so you can get more views = more chances that someone will buy your prints ๐Ÿ™‚ If you need any help, let me know. It took me a while to get the hang of it…
              For me the best way to sell prints would be if i could have a good A3 printer and do my own prints on museum archive paper, that would be cool ๐Ÿ˜€ One day…

            • You’re right but I can’t even think about leaving my camera at home haha ๐Ÿ˜€
              Ah that’s cool, I thought you had to make the prints right away! ๐Ÿ™‚
              Yes it’s hard to get noticed in Redbubble, i’ve only had 14 views so far haha ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t really have high hopes of selling anything, but i’m going to give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚
              Oh yeah that would be awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€ I print most of my photos at Fnac, they’re cheap and the print quality and paper is good, but i would love to have one of those awesome printers and take care of it all myself as well haha xD Oh well, we can dream right? ๐Ÿ˜€

            • Exactly! I can never go anywhere without my camera either! ๐Ÿ™‚
              If you start joining groups and maybe even submit your photos to the little contests the groups organize, there’s a good chance that you’ll get more views ๐Ÿ˜‰ But views don’t really mean much…you can have only 400 and already sold some prints…and you can have 20.000 and never sold anything…Nothing to lose though, so you did good to give it a try ๐Ÿ˜€
              A3 printers are not that expensive anymore…I think you can get one with 200-300 Euros…A really good one would cost about 600…Which is not a crazy amount of money if you actually use it for work…Of course we can dream ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m sure one day it will happen!

            • Yeah I did join a few groups and stuff, but some of them have really stupid rules… hmmm do you want to create a photography group with me?? ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe xD
              You’re right, I read some posts about people who sell t-shirts, but a girl there said that she has photographs with thousands of views and didn’t sell even once :s i think it’s sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
              Oh and it’s such a pleasure to see our work printed, don’t you think?? ๐Ÿ˜€ I wish I had one of those printers, if you want to start your own printing business then it’s a good investment! ๐Ÿ™‚

            • It’s not a bad idea actually…Group owners do get a lot of exposure if the group does well! But we would have to think of a theme and actually spend time administrating the group…hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚
              Truth be told, there is a lot of junk on Redbubble…many prints are terrible…I don’t know how they even think that someone might want to have that thing in their house…I’m following some very good photographers and they have very little views and many no sales at all…And people with junk have actually sold things…It is sad…
              It is amazing to see your photos printed, i totally agree! With digital photography we rarely even print anything…I would really like to start printing out more stuff, one reason why i’m very excited about my art sale ๐Ÿ˜€ But some of my friends that contributed told me to keep the money and that they don’t want a print, which does help me cause i need the money…but so far i have had very few print requests ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was imagining that i would have to spend a whole day at the post office trying to send out all the stuff and how annoyed the employee would be with me bringing in piles of large envelopes, all going to different places…and now i have like only 12 prints to send and most are postcards…Pfff…

            • Yeah i know! :O and most groups are too especific! I was thinking we could create a group dedicated to the best photographs there, B&W and color, no snapshots and no crazy/stupid rules, 1 or 2 submissions a day and we reserve the right to reject whatever we want if it’s not good enough by our standards ๐Ÿ˜€ lol what do you think? xD
              Oh you should, it’s great! ๐Ÿ˜€ I wish I could sell the prints I make, but that’s not happening lol
              I will try to buy a print from you, I hope my mom lets me use her pay-pal account! ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t promise anything though!
              “Oh man here comes that girl Alex again with two dozen envelopes to mail! Jim, you take care of her, I can’t take it anymore!!” haha ๐Ÿ˜€

              Hahahahahaha…you had me laughing out loud…I don’t know their names but at our local post office there are actually 2 employees and the way you said it, i imagined that it was a woman talking to the man there…She is so lazy…Even if you go with one envelope she looks at you like you’re putting her through so much trouble…like you just made her climb mount Everest! Hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, even if you cannot buy a print, i still appreciate the thought ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still waiting for some certain contributions to come through but i don’t think it will be enough to reach my goal…I might have to extend the campaign for one more week…I hope not cause i’m all day in front of the computer, no time to work out or go for a walk…i feel like Quasimodo…Not a very attractive sight :’D

            • Yeah let’s do it! ๐Ÿ˜€ What should we name the group?? Expert Photography or something like that? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
              Haha that’s what i was thinking too! ๐Ÿ˜€ She’d look at you like “-___-” and woudn’t even say good morning because you were there the day before with more envelopes ๐Ÿ˜€
              I really hope it all works out, how many days do you still have?
              Oh don’t say that, you remembered to stretch your back every now and then right? ๐Ÿ˜€ I I’m sure you look great anyway hahah ๐Ÿ˜€

            • I think there is a group called like that already ๐Ÿ˜› We must find something fresh, that will make people want to join, just by reading the name! hehe…
              Hahaha, exactly!!! That’s what our post office is like!
              I still have 10 days left…actually it’s more like 9…cause the day changes at midnight…It is supposed to pick up again at the end…it’s normal to have a dead period in the middle of the campaign…We will see how it goes…i might have to extend it for a few more days…I’m so close to the goal, i think it’s possible to be done! Indiegogo keeps a 9% if you don’t reach your goal, if i reach it, will be only 4%…It is a significant difference…
              I go for a swim almost every morning but then when i sit and start working on stuff all day long on my computer and i forget to get up as often as i should…I’m usually very active and i hate to sit all day but i have no other choice…I must do this.

              p.s. If we continue like that with the comments, you’ll soon be able to write a whole book with them just from this post alone…hehehe…My email is vlight@live.com, better talk there about the group and redbubble ๐Ÿ˜‰
