Etsy Shop Spotlight
Anna Delores Photography
What do you create/sell? I am a photographer! Most of what I sell in my Etsy shop are photography prints, but I also have calendars, notecards and postcards, as well as photo jewelry. I also started offering gift certificates in time for the holidays. : )
When did you start doing your craft? I got my first camera (a purple plastic 110 film Kodak) before I was 10 years old and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I was always the girl at parties, restaurants, family gatherings, and vacations taking photographs of EVERYTHING to the point where people would yell, “Emily, quit taking so many pictures!” I’m glad I ignored their advice! I got a lot more serious about it this past year when I got my first DSLR camera.
Who inspired you? In terms of my current photography, my cousin Kristen inspired me most. She’s had a fancy Canon for years and I’ve always been amazed by both her creative eye and technical execution (and she just does it for the pure fun of it). She takes a ton of photos of her two-year-old daughter and they’re just breathtaking. My envy of her talent inspired me to get more serious about my photography.
Where do you create? What surroundings get your creative juices flowing? Photoshop is a huge source of creativity for me! In terms of subject matter, though, I am happiest with my camera in a new city with plenty of time to wander around. Some of my favorite photos have come from random moments on the streets of Los Angeles, Vienna, Paris, Rome…
