First blog...

posted on 5th of june, 2009

I just saw this blog feature a few minutes ago, and even though it is late at night and I have to work tomorrow, I thought that I would write something. So, what do photographers blog about?
Everything, probably. Life is a series of photographs. Unfortunately, they aren't always correctly exposed. Sometimes life is noisy, grainy, and the noise reduction filter doesn't perk life into a crystal clear, focused, picture.
But I'm not trying to present a philosophical picture on life. Now, to photograph a philosophical picture of life on my digital camera in RAW...that's the present. A heck of a great present.

Did I mention that I'm also an English major?
Maybe on my first blog I should jot a few things down about myself, besides my late-night obsession with puns. I love the show LOST, I don't like the Bachelorette but I'm watching it anyway (go, Wes!), I'm a student, and when I'm supposed to write essays I'm usually outside with my camera.
I recently had to buy a new 1 TB computer because my photos were taking up too much space and the poor old machine was slowing down. Now, with my new computer, I'm always shooting in RAW and forget to delete photos I don't use so I'm going to hope they release a 2 TB computer soon...No, I'm just joking. I'm paying my university fees. Does anyone have any hints what to do with all those RAW photos?

I hope I mentioned that microstock photography sounds great. I've always done artsy flower photos, so trying to photograph things that aren't nature is more difficult...but I'm getting there. My family is composed of health nuts, so I'm focusing on that right now as inspiration.

Good start! And... I just blog what comes into my brain, which is quite small, so my blogs don't take too long.

Welcome to DT Dotlock. Are some of the nuts in your photo's part of your family :0) Ok, jokes aside, photographers blog about many things, from their achievements, others achievements, likes, dislikes and their goals and dreams, as well as often sharing tips and tricks to improve others photos and or concepts etc...What to do with RAW files, I save mine to backup disks and DVD's in order to alleviate stress on my PC, however, I dont have a 1TB computer, so I am a little more stressed for space than yourself. You are off to a good start and health issues are always a good selling concept so keep them coming and hopefully you can start making some extra cash for those studies.
