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.
I was slumped in front of the telly in my normal semi-conscious state when I had this notion that something important was on the horizon. I did a quick check, blood tests and hospital appointments due but surely I had missed something out of the ordinary. It took a while but it finally dawned on me that sometime towards the end of this month SNAPSHOTS of GIRLS will be 20 years old! I can’t believe it, how could I have dragged out for so long an average ability to take photos and build web sites. Over the years I’ve tended to go my own sweet way and ignored popular trends but I feel I should throw some breadcrumbs to you lot out there, my long suffering followers, and ask you what you would like to see on the site. Recently I’ve been shooting less and less adult content but is soft and mushy the right path to tread? Do you prefer harder content, or should I just continue with my usual mixture of a bit of everything?
In the comments on the last post Rob asked a question about how many pictures I expect to take in a session and how many would I cull so as to retained a record from which to select the shots I post here.
This is not easy to answer because every session is different. I have in my mind a rough idea of what I want to shoot but no detailed plan so how many shots are taken depends on a number of circumstances including my mood, how the model is performing, and if I know the model, how much time is spent gossiping. For a 3 hour session it can vary between less than 200 to around 500 snaps. I would guesstimate that over 95% of the shots will never see the light of day, I am very fussy on what gets seen. Except for the obvious ugly shots and technical failures, which are destroyed immediately, culling the photos always takes place at a much later date. My opinion on what is good or bad is coloured by my memory of the session so I like a long cooling off period before deciding what gets the scissor treatment.
I hope this explains my rather slapdash method of working Rob and if anyone else has a question feel free to ask them in the comment sections and I will do my best to answer.
I’ve always had an affinity with this lyric because it neatly sums up my life. Yes I’m in a dark reflective mood again. I’ve just passed my leaving work anniversary, one whole year since clocking off. Where did that year go and what have I achieved? Sweet fuck all! I seem to have been born without a shred of ambition. C’est la vie.
