The power of Social Media

I hear it all the time... social media is one of the best vehicles to get your art or photography exposed to potential buyers... it still has not worked for me in terms of sales. But I am not giving up!
In fact, a couple of days ago, I had another artist put a comment and share my image bellow on her facebook page and all of a sudden this image is my most viewed on Fine Art America and it has been getting a lot of exposure. So I still believe in the power of the social media, I just think it takes some time to reach the right market.

Here is the image, one of my favorites:

Projected Background Portrait

There is a portrait technique where the photographer projects a slide or a video on the background, of images previously taken of the same subject in other poses. I think it is very cool concept and I have seen some fantastic images done that way. I will try it myself once I can get a projector.
For now though, I have created a similar concept using two images which I blended in photoshop. It is not the same thing but I like the way it turned out.
Feel free to comment on the image and, if you know the technique I described above, and you have any  samples of it, you can post a link to them.
