What a shit week. After a spending hiatus of many months I decided it was time to splash out on some new computer and photographic bits and bobs. What happens? Of the seven items ordered two have gone adrift in transit and one item is DOA. Ordering stuff online is usually easy but finding the procedure for reporting a problem not so. I’m now waiting to see if and when my money is returned and then starting the ordering process all over again because the missing bits are still required.
Surprisingly I’ve decided to be a bit more proactive and check out the available talent earlier this year. Not much seems to have changed from recent times though. Suitable fresh faces are thin on the ground and are either too far away or too expensive. Having an extensive if one dimensional back catalogue of snaps to post means I could go a few years without arranging a new shoot and that looks likely unless there is a dramatic improvement in the situation.
I’m not one to dwell on TV adverts but when it comes to the campaigns for expensive perfumes, male and female, I’m left dumbfounded. What the hell are they about. The visual symbolism goes way above my head and I’m pretty sure the “creatives” involved have been snorting far too much of that white powder. What we need is some straight forward no nonsense imagery so here’s a few more of my outdoor snaps.
Something a bit more up to date than I’ve posted recently. Unfortunately I wasn’t in a particularly inspired shooting mood so tried out a few variations with the lighting that didn’t quite work but these are okay I suppose.
Checking the web site stats the other day I noticed a large number of hits coming from Russia. Now whether these are real visits or spambots doing what spambots do I know not. I do find it amusing though that such a minor presents like SNAPSHOTS of GIRLS gets such attention and I wonder what happens on the mega sites. Other than the constant stream of rubbish spam posted in the comments, which I trap and delete daily, I haven’t noticed anything untoward which I suppose I should be grateful for.
