:pumpkin: Pumpkin Carving Tutorial - Part 1 by johwee Pumpkin Carving Tutorial - Part 2 by johwee Pumpkin Carving Tutorial - Part 3 by johwee :pumpkin:


Yo, how's everyone doing?

It's about that time of year! Pumpkin patches should be opening up soon, so the pumpkin carvings will follow! I was actually really excited to get an early start this year, and bought a pumpkin from the grocery store to get things going... and then I got sick. And then the pumpkin rotted! So yeah it's been a little rough, I'm still recovering (and I've completely lost my voice, yay!) but soon enough there will be pumpkins!

I finally upgraded my camera this year as well! I've been using an Olympus Stylus Tough for the past couple of years and I haven't been happy with it for awhile. It can't get good pictures of watermelon carvings for one, which is why those dropped off. But now I have a Canon Rebel SL1! It takes very pretty pictures of my cat, and I think it's going to take some amazing pumpkin pictures as well.

That's about it for me! Looking forward to some good carving this season :D

If I may ask, what's with the watermelons? do they like not rot as fast or something? Love your work.

They last about as long, but they're easier to find throughout the year, especially in summer. They tend to be a good warm up for pumpkin carving season :D
