Hey folks,

First journal since September. Whoa. Hope the New Year is treating everyone well. :) Quick update before we get to the color magenta: I finished up my first semester of teaching back in December, and by the grace of God I didn't royally screw up. In fact, they invited me back this Spring semester and tripled my class load. Awwright! I'll be teaching two sections of the same intro Bio/Health hybrid course, and I've scored a General Biology lab in addition, so I'll get some experience there too. Should be a fun semester.

Now, onto the real reason for this journal. I've been working on editing and posting more photos of late, and I happened to see a few shots in my gallery on another computer. Several of my recent posts seemed to have an odd magenta cast to them, especially in the highlights/whites. Really looked kind of bad. I didn't (and don't) see any of this color on my editing computer, so I'm not sure which monitor is telling me the truth. I thought my editing computer was calibrated, but maybe not. It may just be a difference in the iMac monitor color profile vs every other profile in the world (which is a problem I sadly can't fix). Who knows? Anyone else out there seeing this magenta/purple hue in my images of late? Any feedback would be appreciated!

Have a great January everyone (and a great 2016 too, in case I don't post any more journals)!

Can I use some of your photographs as references for watercolor paintings? I'll credit you.
robbobert Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Sure thing. :) Glad you like my photos enough to reference! All I ask is that you give credit (sounds like you have that covered), and that you send me a link so I can see your work if/when you post it. Thanks for taking the time to ask!

You're welcome and I will! I do abstract/surrealist things though such as meerkats flying through outer-space space with butterfly wings.

Wow, your high res photography gallery is a real joy to browse. *v* It was a very inspiring experience. Not sorry for the +Fav:+fav: rain.

You earned a new watcher!

Sorry for the extremely, extremely late reply! I've been running around like a headless chicken the past few weeks, so I haven't been on dA much. Glad you enjoyed your time looking through my gallery. You'll never hear me complain about +fav rain. ;) Hopefully I'll have some time to edit and post new work here sooner rather than later, so keep an eye out. :)

I came across your gallery looking at different cat photos. I am an avid cat lover, so I'm going to be watching you. I love all your photos, and it warms my heart to find another avid cat lover. When I'm not so poor, I may want to purchase some of your work. Heart

Thank you so much for the kind words. :) I've been a little burned out on my photography of late so reading something like this is quite heartening. Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you like what I post from here on out. :thanks: Take care!

I'm glad I was able to help you during your burn out phase. We all get burned out from time to time. Of course I will like your new posts! Heart
