  5. Two sales in one day, on the anniversary of George Floyd's death. Low $
  6. Thank you, friends. Yes, it's been a tough time. And did I mention I broke both my arms on March 12 rollerskating? Yep. I was without WiFi for about three weeks and couldn't type anyway. I did upload a bunch of photos a few days ago and it felt good to get back to the practice.
  7. I am soooo sorry to have missed all this excitement and gone silent for so long. Please forgive my absence. My mom was diagnosed with stage four cancer in April and my whole life turned upside down. In the midst of intense difficulty, it brought me joy to see my photo tied for first place amongst the photographers here whom I admire and learn from so much! I am not worthy!!!

There is a printer near me that I used to make business cards once, so I can try them, but I think they only do bulk runs. But isn't going through a lab a hassle, when you can just print at home?

  10. I used to be on film festival committees, lots of them. I felt like the best works almost always rose to the top and the weak ones fell to the bottom. There was general consensus. I think it's different with photos. They are more subjective and there are far fewer clear markers around what makes them objectively good and bad. The Alamy forum is full of people with good eyes, skills, and tastes. So it does surprise me often what gets chosen. And yet, you can detect when someone has really put some work into it from their selection. So I would argue that judging/selecting
