Shelagnoa
is only half here.
United States
I'm a musician (sort of), photographer (not much anymore) and art-lover (for the most part) living in Colorado.

I've been on dA for over 11(!) years now, and by participating here I have learned more about the fundamentals and aesthetics of art than I have from any art class. I'm here in hopes of improving my craft.
It's been quiet here on my little dA page. I've been lurking, I'm here every day, but I haven't submitted a photo in almost a year, nevermind been at all social. I don't even browse much anymore.

I took some photos over New Year's when I was in a beautiful mountain cabin in the middle of nowhere. Those photos are still on my memory card, which has not been removed from my camera. I tried to get my website nailed down and functional, and that simply slipped out of my grasp. The idea of picking up my cameras seems more a chore than a delight. I've tried everything I can think of to renew my interest - browsing inspiring artwork, buying equipment and software I've wanted for years, reading about ideas and tutorials and explanations of photography and art theory. These things got me excited for very brief moments, not even long enough to pick up my equipment and check to see if the batteries have kept their charge over the last year. (I managed to check at one point - they haven't.) I haven't even started the curriculum for the New York Institute of Photography, and this August(ish) will be the year 2 mark of the three years I have to complete everything.

Losing all of my old raw images certainly didn't help.

Someday I hope I can rekindle my passion for photography. I loved creating beautiful images; they were my pride. Right now though, I have no idea when - or if - that will happen.
