I like taking pictures.
I do not consider myself a photographer --
If I have to define myself to one word, I call myself a painter; a player in the traditional medium avenue, but far far from a photographer... but I do like taking pictures. And usually, those pictures look something like this:
It's a leaf submerged in water!
A moment that can only be captured and recorded in that second with a camera. Any other medium would not tell the same story so well.. so that's why I like taking pictures -- to record split seconds like this that are beautiful and naked to the eye.
However, I just don't take random abstract pictures --- I also take lots of random pictures of landscapes, animals, insects, fish, flowers -- you know like any other instagram user.
So since I like to share these pictures all over social media... some people have asked if they could get prints of my photographs (well, my mom asked...)
And so I've secretly been on a mission to find an affordable but reasonable way to have my photographs printed
so my mom can have one of my photos on her wall.
This week, I discovered Society6.com... A print on demand website.
