It’s been a busy summer and I’ve been neglecting my blog and my Tumblr. Between having more editorial shoots than all of last year (which I passed around the beginning of June) and full time new dad duty (ok, not so new any more as hard as it is to believe) the blog hasn’t been on my radar. But, summers over and it’s time to get back to work, right?
Last summer I bought the much hyped and hard to get Fuji X100 camera as a little carry around camera. After using it I instantly determined that, while the files it produces are very nice, the camera itself is infuriating to use. As I noted on my trip to New York City, even though the X100 was with me everywhere I went, I used my iPhone instead.
I’ve been meaning to post this for a while but I never got around to it. Then last night fellow Bay Area photog Timothy Archibald announced that he’s planning on dumping blogger and moving to Tumblr.
It’s my personal opinion that Tumbr is ruining the photographer blog. More and more a lot of the photographers who’s blogs I follow have been moving to Tumblr. And pretty much across the board they went from an interesting informative blog to nothing more than a stream of photos. Worse than that, a stream of Instagram photos of nothing in particular. I love a good Instagram BTS shot as much as the next guy and I think it’s great to show outtakes and other work that doesn’t make the “main” website, but I don’t really need to see the view from your airplane seat on your way to a shoot (that seams to be a favorite on Tumblr).
So this is what I’ve been working on the last nine months and I’m glad she’s finally here.
