Farm art

Despite yesterday’s tale of tragedy, today was a good day. First because of all you wonderful people that left such kind and encouraging comments. Second because of a couple of our customers, who were beyond understanding about an issue with their pork. Their compassionate responses left me feeling humbled and grateful. I sat in church tonight lifting prayers of thankfulness for all of you.

So…on to something fun!

I’ve been playing around with a cross-processing effect in Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. It makes for a cool vintage-y effect. I’m definitely going to be printing & framing a few of these for our own walls.

I especially like this last one.

So anyone reading this have experience selling photographs online? I’d like to give it a try but not sure if I should find a site that will print & ship the photographs for me, or have them printed locally & ship them myself. And if I print & ship myself, should I set up my own site using a Paypal shopping cart of some kind? Or use a listing service like Etsy? Advice, suggestions anybody?

    My favorite is the duck. The chicken is my second favorite, though.I’m glad to hear that you all weathered the scary fire and that you all are ok, too.

  3. Hurry up and start selling your photos – I love the rooster one. I have Paypal for ebay and etsy selling – fees are a little steep, but it’s convenient, and after 2 or 3 months of good standing, you can get a debit card so your money is available immediately to you. Glad you all are surviving your past few days.Kris

  4. I like them all,especially the last one!

  6. Hi there!I’m sorry I’m chiming in a little late to this. I’m behind on my blogging.I use http://www.photoreflect.com. I know of several pro photographers who use this and like it. The best part is that it is free for hosting your pictures. When a customer places an order, it charges a certain percentage of the order. That’s it. So I have to mark up my prices a tad to cover the fees. You have the option of having them fill the order by printing and shipping it through Labricity or you can fill it and ship it yourself. I print and ship myself so I can assure the quality of every photo. It is also cheaper for me to use a local lab then it is to use theirs. I know there are probably others out there I don’t know about. I just like that it is free to host everything and is a visible storefront to selling photos. You can choose from several design templates and customize it. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps!Blessings,Lynsp.s. I love the prints!p.s.s. I have a question for you. When you export your pics to put online, do you pull every photo into Photoshop and put a copyright on the photo individually that way in there? Or is there a program of some sort out there that will do it for you?

  7. Thanks for the feedback everyone!Lyns – yes, I pull each one in (I use Elements), resize, and add the copyright.

    I just LOVE the farmyard of the cows. It totally reminds me of something taken 30-40 years ago at my uncle’s farm.
