Since my return a few days ago, I wanted to share several of my photographs and what I've done with them. The draw was overwhelming to say the least and thanks for the feature. But with failing health and structural issues, I may not be painting as much as I would have hoped. However, The wife (my inspration) wants me to stay active, so she purchased a new Canon M6 camera for me to take photos.

The hope is that I can continue with my photography more than my paintings. In order to do this and it doesn't look as if Craftster has an official "photo" area. I've submitted a request to the moderation team in the hopes that an official photo art area be added for those of us whom use a camera instead of paint brush etc. Maybe call is "Crafty Photographers"??

Next:

I've been here for some time, but life calls in many directions. With this.. I work to enjoy my life and not make money unless other see and want my work. In this.. I was asked or allowed to create a signature where if anyone sees some of my work they want, They can contact me and I'll run down the list of available prints, images & canvas. Sorry all oil painting originals are not for sale.

Next:

Although I was selected as a featured participate, I feel that I'm not worthy of this honer as there are other here with far better talents than just painting over old photographs. In the same breath, I'd like to see an option included in the forums that allows members to buy from or offer servers for other members. IE: I'm alway needing camera supplies etc.. for exchange for my prints etc Or as a better option, I've yet to actually become a forum supporter. But what is gain by becoming a "friend of the forum" other than paying for extra space in your profile..

Lastly:

If the photography area is created, this would allow persons like me to not only shows case my work, but allow others to showcase their. One certain days we can have events that allow for online classes, challenges and actually have prizes awarded for the winners. I for one could contribute framed images of mine or simple SD card or camera accessories to winners. I'm wanting to branch off from the swapping aspect and allow other craftster photographers to swap/sell/trade gear or their works etc. Take part on group Photo classes, challenges even national tours (on site) photo classes.

Thank you so much for these suggestions, Bokehen

Since my return a few days ago, I wanted to share several of my photographs and what I've done with them. The draw was overwhelming to say the least and thanks for the feature.

Added a note with your suggestion to this thread.

Great use of the signature section!

The people have spoken and your works are definitely worthy! Smiley

Friends of Craftster (also known as FOC) have a a handful of perks.  You can read about them in detail here.  I do suspect the #1 reason most join is for the "Fanatic" level and the ability to turn of advertisements on the site.

We definitely love challenges and contests here!  Great ideas.  Thank you for sharing!

Also received your email suggesting a camera icon as an additional Friend of Craftster (FOC) icons.  Thank you!
