I was recently accepted as an Arcangel contributor, and I’m so excited! I think I found my niche! I’ve been an iStockPhoto contributor for a while, but a good portion of the images residing there are more business based and I had a good portion of my work rejected there. Arcangel is suited towards book covers and the like, and I think I will be great fit there. Here’s their web site, you can see for yourself the type of work they do… www.arcangel.com.
My Photoshop abilities will be used from general retouching and color tweaks to major surreal composites. The fun part for me is now thinking of new ideas in a way I haven’t done before. In addition to that, I will be doing more photography and hiring models to help me create these images. I’ve let photography take a back seat lately, but now I will be focusing equally on photography and Photoshop.
I’m really looking forward to the day that I see one of my images on a book cover! I think that will be one of the most gratifying moments of my imaging career.
Not much else to say on my Arcangel experience yet, but I’m sure I will have more later. Right now I’m just focusing on new images and getting my feet wet.
