Squidoo Artists and Their Art

Updated on October 15, 2012

A Lens For All Artists in Squidoo

I am constantly amazed at how many Art Lenses there are on Squidoo. I would love to have a hand in promoting some of these Art lenses.

Oil painting, offers many persons a fine opportunity for wholesome relaxation, together with a fascinating challenge. Perhaps you would like to have more exposure for your lens. I hope that you will share them here for us.

Whether you do tole painting as your hobby, or you love taking photographs and want to share your best lens of that with us I would like to encourage you to add a lens of your choice to this lens.

Hopefully this lense will help the ones who are registered here at Squidoo to get more exposure.

Please read on down to where you may add your favorite art lens.

Promoting Artists and Their Work

Approximately how many photos have you hanging on the walls in your home?

See results

Let me introduce you to Will. He is an internationally known photographer who has teamed up with one of the fastest growing fine art sites on the internet. In Will's gallery you will find well over 2,000 high quality photographs and digital designs.

Will has generously given me permission to use his photographs in my lenses so I feel it is pay back time.

For enlarged images of the pictures in this lens please view them in Will's online Gallery at: Will Borden.com where they may be purchased at a reasonable price.

It is easy to see what kind of frame would look nice on a photograph. Just choose the picture, then you will be given a large choice of frames and matting. Mix and match frames and mats until you have the effect you prefer.

Because of Will's travels, he is able to offer you a wide variety of scenes. Some of the photos featured on this lens were taken on vacation, others were taken close to home. Will has often spent days and days on his digital art, I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do. They are available for purchase on his website.

Squidoo Artists At Work

I went shopping for a new camera.

Recently I decided that I would like to learn how to take great shots like Will, my husband, does. The cameras featured below were my two top choices. They were both comparable and either one would have been a great buy. I had a hard time deciding.

Many reviews say, get this with the stabilization lens.... I wholeheartedly agree... the extra $100 is a bargain price for this lens... It is almost (and I do say almost) like having a tripod. Will sets the camera for 1/10th second exposures with no support, and obtained steady pictures with it. Slower than this and the stabilization did not fully correct for unsteadiness.

Can you guess which one I purchased? (Hint: Look below.)

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (discontinued by manufacturer)

This is a nice camera. I like all of the features and it feels comfortable in my grasp.

 
Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Panasonic DMC-FZ150K 12.1 MP Digital Camera with CMOS Sensor and 24x Optical Zoom (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

This camera has everything that the Canon has but it came more highly recommended by my learned husband.

What Will loves is he can reset the camera rapidly for multiple shots of the same scene on very different settings. Married with a decent photo program on your computer, it is possible to achieve professional results.

 
My camera.

This is the camera I purchased.

It is Will's favorite and it's mine too!

I have had my camera for a couple of months now and I am really pleased with the quality of photos it takes. I love the zoom lens as it allows me to take photos of things I would never be able to photograph without it.

I'm not yet to the point of displaying here the photos that I have taken. I still need a lot more practice.

Is Photography Art?

I believe it is!

Digital Arts & Graphic Design

In 1865, the writer Horace Greeley announced the latest frontier by saying, "Go West, young man, and grow up with the country."

Today's enterprising sage would probably say, "Go digital, and grow with the economy." Programing services in WiFi and Bluetooth, creating Fortune 500 Web sites, and filming independent movies are great examples of how media artists are digitalizing our culture. If you have a keen eye and artistic sensibilities, design courses can prepare you for an industry that shows no sign of slowing.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts that graphic artists with animation and Web design skills will have the best opportunities through the end of the decade and beyond. About one third of working digital media artists will be self employed.

Soooo, here is an opportunity to buy a good underwater digital camera. What are you waiting for?

If just getting started you might want to just buy a watertight case for the camera you already have. Besides being waterproof, it also floats so it would make a good case for a very young photographer also.
