I have taken the plunge and sold all my old film cameras, well all bar one. It took much soul searching but common sense prevailed. I haven’t used any of them in anger for a fair few years and I was made a reasonable offer for the job lot “as seen” and untested. Selling them myself individually could have brought in far more but it would probably have taken me years with the added grief of dealing with an assortment of dumb questions.
After the trauma of recovering my home movies for installation onto my Synology NAS I felt I should give video editing another go but it’s been painstakingly slow. I’ve completely lost touch with Final Cut Pro and keep having to refer to online help. Watching tutorials on YouTube they make it look so simple but I’m struggling. Maybe I’m being too fussy with the edits, after all I’m not producing a blockbuster. Keep on trucking Big Ears, practice makes perfect.
My photography has ground to a halt. Too hot, bad back, no money and most importantly no models. I’m thinking of posting a pointless sarcastic casting call to see if I have more success than with the more sensible informative ones I normally dish out. The problem with this is going to be not only letting down gently the totally unsuitable models but answering all the awkward questions I’m bound to get.
It’s time for a website change, I’m figuratively moving the sofa to the other side of the room by abolishing the ability to make comments. Although I enjoy your input there are drawbacks, the main one being the huge number of spam entries that have to be weeded out. In future if you want to praise me, diss me, or even send me money you can contact me via the site email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, or comment on my Twitter, @bigearspix, which I intend to utilise to a greater degree.
