Interview!

My good friend, author of Jeni Gray Photo Blog, is doing a series of articles on marketing yourself as an artist. As part of that series, she has interviewed me! :-) You can read the interview on her photo blog here. I enjoyed doing the interview and hope you enjoy reading it too.

While you're there, be sure to check out Jeni's beautiful image slide shows under "Black and White," "Color," and "Art" at the top of her blog. Which ones are your favorites? I thought that her color nature pictures were my favorites until I really looked at the others. Now I'm not so sure! All I know is that she's been taking beautiful photographs as long as I've known her!


Her other blog, Diary of the New Pioneer, is like a breath of fresh air for me every time I visit it. It's about living simply in a remote area, and there's always something interesting, from back road adventures to backyard habitat. If you go to this post, you can see some of Jeni's adorable raccoon neighbors (they're so cute!). Her posts are interesting and fun, plus she takes really beautiful photographs. It makes for a refreshing and unique blog experience.

I'll post soon about a recent trip to a special miniatures museum, and soon after it will be time for some mini fun to help celebrate my one-year blog anniversary. Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer

  2. Great interview! I really want to learn how to use my camera to take great pics. Everyone elses photo's are always so great and mine really frustrate me. The camera is a good one... it's just the photographer that could use help >:(

  5. Hi Drora! Thank you so much! Jeni asked some good questions, and it was really fun to do. I was wondering if my raccoon photo would be a good one for another card design--thanks for suggesting it! :-) Did you see Jeni's raccoon photo? Adorable! :-) Jennifer

  7. Hi Mini Minnie! Thank you so much for your lovely comment and for recently becoming a friend of Plushpussycat. I read online recently about a woman who took her camera to a camera shop, where they taught her how to use her camera--for free! It sounded like a good idea to me. ;-) Jennifer

  24. Wow, looks like we're having Jennifer-Days - your business goes like a rocket now... ;O) Congrats, must be fun to be interviewed, and it was fun to read it and thank you for this blog tip (Btw - I loved the black and white ones a little bit more than the others). - Love that pic of my darling raccoon (I'm a fan of this little guy, you know) and I think Drora was right, he'd deserve his own greeting card. I'd suggest you should entitle it "Hello sunshine!"

    Greetings
    Birgit

  25. Hi Birgit! It's always great to hear from you--you usually make me laugh, like today! Your favorite photos of Jeni's were her black and white ones, eh? They ARE beautiful, aren't they?! "Hello Sunshine!" That's so cute, Birgit! Will I have to share royalties with you if I use it? LOL ;-) Thanks so much for your great comment--you made my day! :-) Jennifer
