I liked to hear the discussion on left eye dominance. That is me all over. I am also left handed by birth. (yes not hatched) LOL I handle my camera as a right handed person. My only inconvenience is I can see what is coming towards me like a right eye shooter. Since I shoot a lot of dirt bike racing I have to be well aware of what is coming towards me. I have a grand kids that are left handed but are right eye dominate. They hold the camera completely different than me.
The biggest thing about having to produce creating while running on empty is just a disaster. In the long run it makes all your work empty too. Having to create one of a kind jewellery for years and years it just get harder as you decline in ideas. Add to that the lack of quality gem stones the problems become even worse.
I now shoot what I want and sell it. I am much better selling in person as people get to know me and why my work is collectable. I know you do art shows and I am willing to bet you get high off the shows and the people. On a high that you don’t get from an internet sale.
I liked this podcast as it spoke to me with the camera talk. Keep it up and have fun in your new home.
