Lest anyone think me too shallow, it’s not just all about the bling. I’m having fun finding the perfect adornments to create the personality of each new set of gloves. I’m finding, too, that I am loving the challenge of styling the perfect photograph. When I started this crazy little venture I expected I’d have to fine tune and define my work as an artisan. Little did I know that I’d need to define myself as a photographer and stylist, as well. What exactly is my point of view and how do I communicate that? It’s not enough to be able to take a sharp, clear photograph. It goes further. How do all my photographs work together? Is there visual cohesiveness? Does the audience understand and care about my narrative? Do I know who my audience is? I’ve spent the better part of the past week, rearranging my online shops, swapping around photos, and taking new pics to swap out with old. There’s still much to be done and I have much to learn, but while you can’t judge a book by its cover , a picture really is worth a thousand words.
