I have redesigned the layout and created a new header, but these are only the superficial changes to Junaluska. I began this blog two years ago with the intention of sharing my own work and documenting my creative development. Since I lacked both time and material, however, I started sharing inspiration from other artists instead. I recently considered the direction of this blog, and I decided to return to my original purpose.
Junaluska is still Junaluska. I am the same author with the same sources of inspiration and artistic values. My personal photography will possess an aesthetic similar to the work I have enjoyed featuring. I hope you will find this little online world just as inspiring as you always have.
Finally, some wonderful news! Earlier this month, I bought a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I follow quite a few bloggers who produce stunning images with this camera, so I knew I would be happy with the quality and capabilities. [Julia Trotti, Camille Richez, Martin Faltejsek, and Linda Lomelino to name a few photographers.] I absolutely love it. It was definitely worth waiting and saving up for a year, and I'm looking forward to upcoming photo shoots.
I already shot about two hundred photos of a friend who kindly modeled for me a few days ago. I'm currently reviewing and editing these photos, and I'm excited to share them with you as soon as possible. I will have a slower posting rate now, and I'm still figuring everything out with both my photography and my blog.
Thanks for your lovely comments and all of your support.
Much love, Junaluska
