The Same Person!

Posted Jul 2020

Going through unposted photos of Caricatures that I drew Before this pandemic situation. I felt chagrinned when I came across the Caricature that I drew in the 3/4 view ~ because it looked familiar. Concerned ~ was i actually one of those Artists who always draws the Same Thing? I never thought I was........

Then, laughing. Ahah! I remember now. It looks like something I drew before because it was the Same Person. Actually, two Very Different Drawings ~ of the Same Person. I found the front-view photo in a different post on my website. Apparently I drew the Same Person at two different Events.

always a Happy Experience

Photographing my Pictures

Posted Oct 2018

I drew this Caricature on Shiny Paper. Shiny Glossy White Paper. I like the Feel of how the Marker Glides on Shiny Glossy Paper.

But which is the better way to Photograph it? I wish the Photo just looked like the thing I was photographing. I wish the Paper in the Photo looked like it was the Same Color as the Color of the Paper that I chose. But no. Doesn't work like that.

The photo that looks like the paper has a Pinkish tinge ~ that one was Unmaninpulated ~ Photographed with the ORIGINAL Setting on my Phone. Probably picks up the Warm Tones of the Lightbulb in this office.

The photo that looks like the paper has a Bluish tinge ~ that one was done with the Setting called VIVID COOL.

I feel like the photograph done with the ORIGINAL Setting ~ looks warmer, nicer, more approachable. A person might prefer to see himself in this light.

I feel like the photograph done with the VIVID COOL Setting would more likely be described as being on White Paper. Looks cleaner, fresher, newer.

So I don't know which is the better way to Photograph it. But I feel soooo glad that I'm writing about it here. Because I can Finally let go of my Angst about this issue ~ trying it both ways, looks looking trying to figure out which photo to post. I now see that IT USUALLY DOESN'T MATTER WHICH ONE I CHOOSE. They're both good. Different, but good. and if there is some reason why I want this Setting or That Setting, I now know a little more about Photography
