Kirilee Stock- The Next Lvl - Pozible Crowdfunding

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 29, 2014, 2:59 PM





G'day everyone!

I have been given the unique opportunity to purchase a Canon EF 70-200mm 4L IS lens (at a great price!) which would drastically improve the quality of my stock images as I am currently working with very standard lenses. I had the opportunity to work with the lens during the reshoot of the Weapons Wench series... let me show you the difference:

My current lens:
Sissy 15 by kirilee


vs. The New Lens
Weapons Wench 1 by kirilee

Take a close look - you'll see that the second image captures a lot more detail. It is clearer. In short, it is a MUCH better image quality wise.

However, as you might be aware, my cash flow at the moment is not great as Terry and I have just moved into our new house and we are saving up for our wedding in April next year.

That is where I need your help


I have started a Pozible campaign (much like kickstarter but based out of Australia and focused mainly of the arts). It can be found by clicking the link at the very top of the page or by clicking HERE

Any amount that you could spare would be greatly appreciated.
(And if I don't hit the target, no money exchanges hands)

My entire aim for getting this lens is so that I can improve the quality of stock I shoot, to better aid deviantart artists. And I really never wanted to start charging for stock because I believe all my stock should be available to everyone who wants to use it as a free resource (another reason why I never created exclusive stocks).

As mentioned in the video above, there are some rewards - some of which are physical items made by my own two hands (with possibly some sweat, blood and tears woven in :))

I thank you all for your continued support and for all the amazing pieces of artwork that you use my stock in. It truly is the highlight of my day!

Please feel free to spread the word if you are inclined to help me get the message out :)

Many thanks and with all my love
Kirilee

I am looking for a stock image where a man stands before another and takes a hit ( gun or spear or arrow)..its a common thing in stories where someone jumps in middle and protects another taking the hit..I could not find it here..but it must be here..I hope at least..so please if anyone can refer to such image I will be thankful.

i definately want to do it. but at the moment, im living in my uncle's office, sleeping on the floor. :P
we have our eyes on a flat. and i think the lounge is big enough for a full body shoot in there. however. ive only seen it without furniture, when we get couch/armchairs/table in there, it will be a different story altogether. also, i would need another model. which, considernig where i've moved to, is not as much of a problem as it once was. :) 
so.. as soon as i get settled and can start shooting again i will try and do this. :D

if i ever mention doing a pose-based shoot in my journal, remind me! my memory is awful!

Hey I'm having trouble joining the group. For some reason it thinks I'm trying to join as an admin and I'm not! Any advice?
