"Outside the Friesen Gallery" Seattle city scenes, urban oil painting
Being a full time artist and a daily painter has many challenges. Among them is keeping a good operating camera and taking quality pictures. (one of the reasons I haven't posted in a week) I prefer a moderately priced point and shoot so I can easily take it with me anywhere I go. Also a small camera is better for candid shots. Right now I am using a Nikon, Coolpix S8000. This is my second one. My first one began a slow decline after I slipped on a steel sidewalk grate in Seattle and slammed it into the concrete. I liked it so much I ordered a refurbished one for half the price on Amazon. It looks like brand new and seems to work great and now I have an extra battery.......which is another good idea in this business(always take extra charged batteries and SD cards). I have learned however that if you want studio quality photos of your work, you need a very kind and giving colleague who knows photoshop to take your pictures with her fancy SLR. THANKS LEIGH!
