My iTunes: Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall

Over the past few days, I've been doing some photography-related things as study breaks. Several people noticed that I changed my header, then I added a little something below it. I've done a few things today as well that I thought I'd share.

I've been playing around with ideas for logos. I wanted to design one that reflected my photographic style, was classy/classic, and one that wasn't too overtly feminine. (I don't simply want to market my photography to half the population!) :) I think I finally settled on this one:

And this slightly modified version I'm using as a watermark (in white or black as necessary):

What do you think? I'd love to read your comments!

I hesitate to set up my own website before I start making some sort of profit on my photography because of the financial investment it would require. But all the recent excitement about "going pro" in Blogland made me want to put together something that looks more professional. We shall see what the future brings!

I thought this song was appropriate for this post as well. It's one of my new favorites (and it's not classical or opera -- shocking!). I had heard it before, but really came to love it when Courtney, one of the girls I lived with in Philadelphia, played it in the mornings as we were getting ready.

I love your logo - really! Hope you decide to keep it. And I like the idea for your header you might expect since I've done something similar with my Spatter.

It's a keeper! I know I haven't commented much lately, been busy, but I have been visiting and did notice your header change and did silently wish your bro a happy b-day :-)

Just wanted to wish you best of luck with your ideas and don't get discouraged when discouraging things happen... they will, it's natural. Keep at it.

Sometimes I can be a perfectionist, lol... take it or leave it...

In your header the two H's - one has the line going through it and the other doesn't... no biggie... but might be cool to have both, or neither, have the line through...

And probably no one would have ever noticed until I mentioned it... so take it or leave it ;-)

Thanks guys! Haha, and I noticed the two H's right as I saw your comment, JC! Perfectionists think alike I suppose... It is now fixed :)

I like your work you did on the logo! Very nice and I the pic of you is GORGEOUS darling!

Britt said...

I'm so excited for you about all this!

Anna said...

I am glad you liked my pic! I cant wait to share the pics from the shoot! I have to keep them under wraps for now.

Have a good Sunday!
