So it occurred to me that I haven't posted any updates on my photography equipment fund. While only about three people donated to the fund, one of my older brothers saw my fundraiser and just gave me most of the equipment for Christmas, and my sister's boyfriend (my might-as-well-be brother-in-law) gave me a still-life photography table, which wasn't even originally part of what I was trying to fund. I nearly had a heart-attack. All in all I have just about everything I need, except the actual photography backgrounds. As such, my goal has now been lowered to about $150 ($100 left, as $50 has already been donated). On the down-side, I haven't had time to do anything creative for months. It's a long story, one I don't care to share, but I'm hoping to get back into something resembling a normal, manageable schedule sometime soon. Wish me luck! I have so many cool stock photo ideas, I would really love to get something out for you guys soon. There are a few things I can do without the backgrounds.
To anyone who wants to donate to my photography equipment fund as well, just follow the information in this journal: lizzie-bitty.deviantart.com/jo… You can donate any amount you like, and since I featured my first donor's work, I'll feature the work of my future donors too.
On a random note, I've noticed that even though my formerly exclusive photo packs are now free, everyone continues to only download my single photos of the same series. Is it easier to download the singles? Are the packs too big and take a long time to download? Let me know, I'll do what I can to fix it.
