I’m taking over Etsy and I don’t care who knows it.
I now have 2 Esy accounts, and forgive me if my typing is terrible, I also have a sprained wrist.
My main Etsy that I’ve had for years, has been given a pretty big overhaul but it still wasnt wide enough for my range of subject matter and style, something I have no control over. So I started a second etsy, exclusively for Travel Photography, and less artistic stuff. Soon, I will likley start another Etsy, for really artsy stuff.. I just can’t limit myself but don’t want my etsy galleries to be out of control style wise.
The original etsy is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lostlogo
The Travel etsy is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/lostkatphoto
I also started a soopsee account and setup the domain http://www.lostkatstudios.com for my etsy store.
I may also sell prints on here but might just leave that to requests or add things that seem popular to etsy as I go.
I noticed, and have for a while, that what people are really buying, not sure who, is cute little TTV images (fake or real doesnt make a difference really) of little girly looking or “dreamy” images. I don’t really get it, I guess it’s just not my thing, and I’m not saying my photos are better but it just sucks when someone goes through so much trial and error, classes and years of experience, to have your work be overlooked for whimsical simplicity. That’s life I guess.
Doesn’t really matter but of course it would be awesome if I could make a living on my photos since it is the one thing I can see myself doing forever.
