Sometimes city life can get really busy. I mean, I don't really go out especially with everything that's going on and with myself working from home but the city is the city. I don't live in a big city. Oshkosh is pretty much a medium sized city, no sky scrapers or crazy traffic (just every once in a while). There is one thing that is very much treasured by Wisconsinites. It's what they (we) call "Up North".
Up North is the place in the northern part of the state where people go to be with nature. Some people rent places to stay, some go hiking or camping, many go fishing, and many actually have their own land. Luckily for us, we have our own piece of nature to escape to. It's definitely one of my favorite places to go hike or simply just sit on the porch and take photographs.
I've been working on some images today and I wanted to go for a particular look and background. I have many resources, most if not all, I have paid for so I have the full versions and/or the licensing to use them. I've been looking around the backdrops and overlays that I already have but can't find one that feels right.
I did a free trial on this website so I poked around and saw what I needed there! The perfect overlay!! But to access it, it's $19/month. It doesn't really sound expensive, but I already have several subscriptions and I will probably just use it a few times. I've been contemplating. I can purchase the overlays for more than what the subscription is. It doesn't make sense then.
Just like most hobbies, art and photography resources can get pretty expensive. It's $19 and $10 and $30 here and there. It's like buying small items and you realize your $100 didn't get that far.
The real question is - is it worth it?
For me, I do think so! I've found so many uses for different resources from creating websites and editing images, to printing cards and enhancing artworks. The thing is - some post processing doesn't mean extreme changes. It can be minor details that make such difference.
It's finally happening!!
I've contemplated this for a very long time and I've finally decided to just have a separate site for my blog! I've also decided to start taking on photography projects on the side and step up from just doing it as a hobby. That actually led to me updating my photography website to focus more on business and make it less personal.
That's two things that got me thinking for a bit and I'm glad I pushed forward with both of it!
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
