It’s been a week of hard thinking. Should I hang up my camera and retire from the (anti) glamour scene. In recent times I have struggled to find suitable talent and that with the coronavirus pandemic almost certainly wiping out any possible shoots for this year it seems a good time to call it a day. Would I turn away a beautiful young lady if she landed on my doorstep? Probably not, but that’s unlikely to happen nowadays.
I’ve managed to run a few slide copying trials with my Nikon D810. The set-up isn’t perfect with colour balance and exposure proving tricky. If I can get a few decent copies of photo sets, I will use them in future updates.
The cull of my photographic archives continues apace. I’ve managed to stick to my schedule of sorting at least 100 transparencies a day, well almost every day. So far I have destroyed several 1000 snaps. What I dare not do is calculate how much it cost me to take these discarded shots in the first place. Still, no one ever said photography was cheap.
The more observant of you will have noticed that I have cleaned up the site layout. I may even replace the website theme for something more modern. We shall see.
I’ve also deleted my Twitter feed. I’m starting afresh and will be using it for additional photos, the odd snap that doesn’t fit in a set. It means that if I’m feeling lazy I can post just the one image on Twitter and not bother editing a set for the website. There be method in my madness.
I’m toying with ideas on how to spruce up the website. Unfortunately I can’t make up my mind on the best path to take. I don’t want to make more work for myself, already there are too many weeks when I can’t be arsed to sort out snaps to post. I need an easy fix.
