Beautiful Cities of the World Collection
Picking up the recent theme again, here is another image from the special animated creations for the recent drop on OpenSea.
Here’s a photo I recently finished from the Guangxi province of China. It wasn’t the easiest shot to get as I had to climb up one of those big hills you see in the distance. I was a hot sweaty mess when I got to the top… but just after I took the photo, a Spring rain came down on me to cool me off.
We had to search high and low to find one of these traditional Chinese tea houses, and this one was about an hour north of Chengdu. We were super happy to find it and we had some incredible tea. One of my favorite things about it was all these old communist posters on the wall. I also kind of like that the place was mostly a wreck… they make great tea, but they’re not the best at tidying.
Hey awesome blog reader… you’ll probably be aware that I’ve been delving into the world of NFTs in the past few months. So far, it’s been both a success and an interesting adventure. That continues today with my 2nd drop on OpenSea. This set of NFTs is based around 50 of my favorite cities spanning all seven continents. There are a wide range of configurations (and prices) available and I’d love it if you’d check them out. If you thought an NFT mixed with physical art was odd last time then how about several NFTs, wrapped in an NFT… mixed with some Aave tokens which should appreciate over time??!
The first drop on OpenSea did better than expected and broke $100,000USD in the first three days. This second one already has a lot of interest as more and more collectors are getting into the NFT world. Jump on in! I’ll make a detailed video soon that talks more about what I’ve learned, mistakes I’ve made, some new ideas, and other interesting stuff from this wild wild west of cryptofun.
Also, if you’re an NFT curious artist, be sure to sign up for Passport where I’ve been sharing videos about my NFT experience so far. If you’re thinking about listing your own, you may find those helpful. Speaking of your own NFTs, I’m now starting to invest back into other projects so if you launch something cool tag me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to take a look. 🙂
To get this look, I used my Movie Night Presets pack which I really recommend. It doesn’t work on all photos, but if you want to give your night photos a little bit of an interesting look, I recommend it. It’s heavily inspired by Blade Runner and a lot of other “dark movies” that I enjoy.
This entire area of Pudong completely empties out at night. I was like literally the only person walking around the streets. It was kind of eerie in a post-apocalyptic kind of way. It did make for some great photos… I just had on my earphones and was dancing around with my tripod like a loon. I’m sure if any Chinese people did actually see me… they’d be thinkin’ “Man, these tourist people are crazy!”
If you’re a Passport Member then you’ll see a fun sneak peek of an upcoming drop over there. I have a new strategy that will either be awesome or crash and burn. We’ll see! 🙂
Here’s a sneak preview of the drop and a little bit about the pricing strategy. I don’t really know if it will work or not. I have very low expectations… so I guess we will see!
