I'm looking to completely revamp my photography.
Basically, I am bored with what I have been doing, everything is coming out plain, I lack the drive, passion, and mostly creativity that I used to have with my art. Mos of this is because of college and just not having the time to focus on my work like I want to. The rest of it is because I need a new camera and some new lenses to get the shots I want. I'm graduating this year and plan to ask for a new camera for graduation - preferably the Canon 7D. (But maybe I will move to Nikon.. thoughts!?) ... hopefully this will fix both problems!
I also want to find new ways to display my art online. I am going to start using flickr and my website as well as dA. I might even use Etsy to try and sell some works.
Basically I want to focus on three areas. Equine, Portraits/Fashion, and cutesy little tid-bits (sorry don't know how to explain this well!)
So here is what I am thinking, I am bored with the name xpicturesque and I think starting fresh would be a good thing, but at the same time I don't want to lose everything that I have worked for on here. So should I...
1) Get an entirely new account for everything
2) Get a new account for portraits and other works and keep this for equine
3) Just use this one don't waste the trouble
I'm leaning towards the second one since I feel like my equine work is more photo-journalistic while the other would be more artsy. If I do get a new account, what should I name it? My twitter name is ellebelleeee, and I do like that... maybe I would just do ellebelle or something that is not-taken. Should I just use my name, EllenEinkauf or ellene? Come up with some other new catchy name?
I want the names to be the same here as they are on flickr. And remember my domain will stay the same, elleneinkauf.com
ADVICE/CRITIQUES/HINTS/IDEASETC are always welcome
Also, some examples of works that I love and the style I aiming for in my works.
