Daily Deviation

Given 2008-08-03
The suggestor writes, "When you see photograms posted, they are often quite stark, lacking subtlety and detail, but this cyanotype photogram by =rawimage is the epitome of grace, subtlety, and elegance. You won't want to miss this artist's gallery, for he is as versatile as an artist as he is skilled. ( Suggested by equivoque and Featured by Staged )

Nice, cyanotype. I love making these. Have you tried large format negatives?
Reply

Thanks. No, I only have some midformat and they turned out bad. But I'll print me some with an Inkjet as soon as I'm back to work.

Yes, Inkjet has worked for me too. Just have to be careful about lines and grain.

Ya it's me :D and you're very welcome!

I miss it here, but I'm selling RF images exclusively on istock so I had to remove all my art. It's something to do with the DA's TOS allowing for RF use. I'll have to check in more often now that nonsubscribers get thumbnails on their watch list. :boogie:
Reply
:iconrawimage:
rawimage Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
oh selling stuff on istock? That's great. I tried that too, but they rejected all of my three sample images :no:
When checking my stock I realized that they would do that on 95% of my stuff. guess it won't work for me...
It's a pity they're not into over processed imagery :(

:icontut-tut:
tut-tut Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2008
Over processed? Yeah, I've heard that one too many times... which is why I pretty much just do vectors for stock these days unless the mood really strikes me. My vectors sell far better anyway except for one very, very silly sock puppet. :O_o:

I hope you're not as sad about it as your emoticons show because you do such beautiful and amazing art:heart:and should never be sad about such a thing.:D

:iconrawimage:
rawimage Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Aww thank youu :aww: No, I'm not really sad, just a bit disappointed, because I thought this is what istock really could need a bit more - grunge.
Please send me a link to your istock account. I couldn't find you under tut-tut..
