No pictures in days
photos: I didn't pick up the camera at all yesterday. Didn't even take it with me anywhere. Was more of an experiement and sometimes setting something aside and coming back to it fresh is a good thing. I usually really only shoot serious pics on my weekend and so only really do post production during the week - sorting deleting, cropping, printing etc. - so this wasn't really new but I told myself I wasn't even going to take it out of the bag after seeing if it was off and charged.
I did come across - finally - a listing of photographers in London. The site is really bad in terms of layout, but I did find some price lists on the photographers' own sites and it gave me some starting points. Found a great site by Ewan Phelan as well who shoots fine art BW stuff around here that I like a lot and would like to emulate some day. Sports Shooter is also a great closed community web site for photographers that I spent some time on and would like to get a sponsor to join. Will work on that later...
I also realized that when setting up flickr, I should have made the URL shorter. www.flickr.com/photos/work4bandwidth is too long. www.flickr.com/photos/w4b would have been better and easier to pass on. this realization came from designing business cards and stamps at Staples last night... and that the URL is a lot of characters. Those of you who have tried to remember it and type it correct the first time know this... :)
Lastly, Leanne mentioned that my photos have certainly changed for the better this year, and improved and developed their own style. I agree. What does anyone who has spent time looking at them think?
