In the Shadow Series

I recently had some of my charcoal drawings professionally photographed. I am always so pleased with the results when I spend the extra money to do this.

ArtWorks Fine Art Publishing in Los Angeles, on Avenue 64, are wonderful to work with. My projects are always completed and ready for pick up when they say they will be. I receive the images, both as a HI, and a LO resolution, on a CD.

With these digital files I was able to upload to Imagekind an online print house. Quickly I received a few test greeting cards in the mail. Their matte finish, looks like a mini charcoal drawing. Each card comes in its own sleeve with envelope. Very impressive if I do say so myself.

Ideas are floating in my head.

Here are the first four:

Robin I also love your shadow series. Is this your first time using imagekind?

Billie - I have so many ideas for this written down, and more in my head. Just need to production time.
I am learning about Imagekind, but I was quite impressed with the test cards I did.

Thank you Jo. I am inspired to continue adding to the group. Thank you for your support.

Robin Neudorfer said...

Casey - much appreciated. It has been helpful to realize I am not a photographer and to leave that up to the specialists

Robin Neudorfer said...

Toni - yes it is. I did a test sample of some cards. I just need to figure out the best way to reproduce them to keep the cost down.
