Wow, thank you for this comment, I love the word luminous! This was a proud moment, having been my first photograph those said was actual 'art' like~I used to be hands on, acrylic on canvas, so this made me smile big, thank you!
Well now it makes a lot of sense. It's almost as if you were painting with film. Don't give up on the painting thought I'll try to check out your sight when I have more time to do it right. But if this is your "first" serious art photo, then you've got a very bright future ahead! A lot of it is the "eye" for seeing things, which has a painter, you have already developed. Then getting to know your "tools" i.e. the camera. then on to lighting,etc. I'm still just a beginner in so many ways myself, by trial and error is so much easier in the digital age of photography!And thanks you SOOOOO much for the donation to my donation pool. I hope to use the points to help out other deserving artists on DA! I really look forward to seeing more of your work soon! Thanks again!!
Thanks so much, it was my first real photograph according to my critics and friends that classified as 'fine' art type. I love the night shot, and would go hunting down the perfect flower all night long when it was warm. This guy was just so innocent. Absolutely no photo editing done here, and I thank you so much!
