Etsy sent me an email on how to do better email marketing.  No surprise, one of the best things to entice people to visit your site is good photographs.  In that email, the following photo was enclosed which I thought was fun, interesting, and worth sharing.

Something special for today . . . Glass Plate Negatives from deep in the Rayko Vault of Photo Love. Because these are shy, I can only tease them one by one, then if you treat them right, they might give themselves to you. These are the Fiona Apple of photography, not the Miley Cyrus of photography which I guess would be iPhone images.

Speaking of Fiona Apple, wetplate images on glass, and children photos, anyone else think Fiona Apple and Sally Mann look like they could be related?



Keep it Cray!


If you have ever experienced the torture of looking through stock photography for good source files to use in design (like when you really need a soccer player kicking a teddy bear into a ficus plant for that company picnic flyer), you will really appreciate this video.  If not . . . it’s still funny.  If you don’t feel like laughing . . . ignore this and move along.

Apple has new ads running during the olympics, but this one is like the life of all skilled designers/creatives not just apple genius employees. Especially accurate is the fact that after completion, there is only a brief moment of enjoyment before the next major design, photography, or in this case, keynote presentation is needed to be hastily made.
