Fine Art America

I recently signed up for Fine Art America to see how it works and see if I can get some exposure for my work.  So far I have a handful of photos but I am planning on putting up more.  I will be uploading photos there that are not sold in my store so that possible buyers would have different options.  My goal mainly is to upload my panoramas and other photos that I think would be good as design for cell phone cases and greeting cards.

They have a lot of cool features that help artists promote their work and one that I just discovered yesterday was where you can sponsor a page so your art work will show on the third row of a search.  For my test I chose morning photos and it seemed to work.  Two of my photos were featured on the third row.  Today though, they changed the link to a different one, so I guess this is a daily thing you have to keep up with if you want your photos easily seen.  I’m sure I’ll play with this some more when time permits.

This is one of the panorama photos I uploaded from our recent trip to Oswego, NY.  As you can see, there’s a Fine Art America logo, I captured it from my page.

I am so new to this platform and don’t really know what to expect and how it all works.  So if you see several posts from me from Fine Art America, I am not trying to spam you, I’m still trying to learn how this works.

To see my gallery in Fine Art America, click here or go to Fine Art America and look for artist Len Bishop. Do come back to see my new uploads, I am still in the process of adding more.  Thanks and I hope you check out my work.

If you have any comments about Fine Art America or if you have used them before, do let me know.

Photo Project Theme Week 25 – Fog

I don’t like days when there’s thick fog and I have to drive to my workplace.  Every time this happens, I always wish I could just skip work so I can photograph in the fog.  Well finally my wish came true 🙂  On Sunday morning when I woke up, the fog was thick.  I knew this  is the chance I’ve been waiting for and if I don’t go out there, I will miss a great opportunity to take cool looking photographs.   So I grabbed my camera bag and took my dog with me and drove around the neighborhood to find interesting things to capture.

First stop was Lake Pflugerville.  I was able to take some shots of the trees by the water.  I took shots of the dock,  a man walking his dog and a fairly big tree by the water but this one is my favorite.  I love how the trees in the back look as if they’re lost in the thickness of the fog.

Photo Project Theme Week 2 – Tomorrow

Last week, I started doing my Personal Photography Project  that I call 3P52.   This is my second week and the theme I chose is “Tomorrow”.

This photo was taken on a Saturday morning.  I drove to this place that I always pass during my morning commute to work, knowing that it would be a good place to shoot sunrise photos.  After taking several photos from that area and not really satisfied with the shots because the clouds were so thick and covering the sun, I packed up my camera and tripod and started to head home.   Less than a quarter mile away, I saw this beautiful sun starting to come out.  Since there really wasn’t a place to park my car and setup my tripod, I decided to just open my window and shoot this scene from inside my car.

To make my hand more steady, I propped my arm on the passenger seat head rest (the scene was to my right).   I believe it did the trick.  I’m glad I took the time to stop and take this photo even with some constraints, otherwise  I would have missed this shot.

If you have a theme you want to suggest for my weekly project, please feel free to email me.   Till next week.
