I was going to write something and then basically just forget it. Not worth my time.
Yours truly is going to be getting interviewed on the upcoming "Shutter Time Show" podcast [link]
where I will discuss my photography and about shooting in general. get ready! Should be fun! When it is available I will link you all.
In other news;
Kind of wondering this...why do groups even exist? Seriously, why? They are still so half baked and are so far away from what they could be. I honestly can't tell you either how many idiots I have encountered who have no idea what a good photo is. Seriously, if you are going to make someone an admin at least make 100% sure that they have a gallery and body of work to backup what they are talking about. You are simply out and shooting pictures that resemble something Stevie Wonder took? You probably have no business being an admin of a group. Just sayin'. Time to clean out the groups I am a member of and keep the good ones who know wtf they are talking about.
Want to know something else? I'll tell ya.
I am going to break down the door and tell you all a little something here. Something that may stir the pot and if you say "they don't to me", I won't believe you. Each and everyone who has ever said "page views don't matter", "comments don't matter", "favs don't matter" is lying about it. Period. Everybody wants to be seen and people to see their work. Straight up, if you didn't you would be posting it on the internet in the first place would you? No.
Each time you upload an image you are in effect promoting yourself, whether it is to get favs, comments, get a DD, make the front page, your name just out there or maybe sell something. What people hate isn't the self promotion/ego stroking, what they hate is the competition which surrounds it.
