My love for photography goes WAY back to sitting with my Nanny and pouring over her many,
many photo albums.
As we looked at page after page, she would tell me who the person or what the event was in the picture. I LOVED IT!!! It never got old...
I love pictures.
I love to see events and art captured in still shots, to enjoy over and over again.
I especially love the act of taking a picture, deciding on just...the...right...moment to snap-the-shot.
I'm sure this love is part of the reason that I was drawn to this dynamic duo!!
Although I love photography, I recently discovered that something was missing for me. Or better yet, I realized that I had a buried passion...I was missing the touch and the feel of the photograph. Some recent events reminded me of this.
1) My sister-friend was moving away and snapped a few shots of us with her instant camera. It was all I could do, not to squeal in delight at the little picture popping out of the camera!
2) A bloggy friend recently commented that I need to open an Etsy shop and sell prints of my photos/art. I was stunned by the compliment and intrigued by the possibility.
3) At a recent vintage shop, I literally stumbled upon some really cool vintage cameras.
Because of these random, yet perfectly designed events, I opened my Etsy shop.
Welcome to Elemental Visions...
It has been so much fun finding cameras for my shop. I love playing with them and am becoming quite knowledgable about cameras from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. I've ordered lots of film and am trying out some new things.
My photography art will be coming along and added to my shop one day. Right now, I am just getting my feet wet, pacing myself and enjoying something new from something old.
peace, love, and passion!
