Wow, what a fun thing to wake up to! My very first sale in my new Etsy shop! I sold a print of my favorite creepy clown in Polaroid form...you may remember him from this post a few days ago.
This is very fun for me. And I know, it's just one sale, and it doesn't really mean all that much in the grand scheme of things. But I've been feeling somewhat uninspired recently, and have been trying to force myself to make a real effort. I've been seeking out the blogs and Flickr photosteams of people whose work I find inspiring, I've been blogging myself, I've been reading photography books and seeking out essays on art and creativity, I've been playing with older shots and revamping them, trying out new processing techniques, etc etc etc. And somehow, selling even one print sort of helps to justify all these efforts, to inspire me to keep going and keep working!
