I feel like talking for a bit.
I'm entering my 3rd semester of college, (however it will only be the 4th and 5th classes I will have taken.) I'm very excited to be working toward the degree I've always wanted! These classes will be very basic, prerequisite classes (Windows OS and HTML) but should be fun nonetheless. I can't wait to take classes like Drawing and Photography! But for now I am delving into self-instruction from the internet to continue building up my limited skills and knowledge.
For my photography I have bought a tripod as well as a CPL filter. I've also been trying to explore aperture, shutter speed etc. with my camera. This has resulted in some pretty amazing results with both my landscape and jewelry photography (though please don't use my most recent submissions as reference to that.)
I've decided to try to promote sales of my jewelry via social media such as Pinterest, pinterest.com/candacescreatio
and Instagram, instagram.com/candacescreation…
on top of Facebook and here on DeviantART (and of course my Etsy page candacescreations027.etsy.com
.) It's all a bit much to maintain considering my limited internet access. I haven't had a single online sale which is somewhat discouraging, but I just take that as a sign that I have a lot of improvement to make.
Lately I've been incredibly frustrated at my slow progress as an artist of any kind. I've wasted a lot of time coming to a point where I was ready to go to school or take myself seriously as an artist, or pursue any kind of career doing art. I am almost 27 and am just starting college, and who knows how long it will take for any of my abilities to legitimize into anything other than a hobby. But now, I have come to a point in my life where I am ready. My harddrive is filling up with websites, videos and tutorials to develop myself. Maybe one day I won't be such an amateur, and maybe one day my posts won't just have 1 or 2 comments on them! lol.
That is, when I can stop writing novels for posts!
