Now I’m just making excuses to make everything dramatic. Like a low budget NatGeo production. Not that dramatic is a bad thing though. I think it is the only thing that makes my photos sucessful (to my standards). The bad thing about having a dramatic style is that I have to be very selective about the photos that I post on this blog or Facebook. Which leaves my blog in a state of starvation. Out of all the photos that I took on the trip to Europe only about 12 made it to the ‘upload’ folder. Then I weeded out half of them just because I thought they wouldn’t perform in the small icon world of Flickr. These photos I might post on the blog later. But my point is that being as selective as I am is not exactly good.
On the other hand, my fellow eye-candy brewer lights+shades frequently plans trips to Sydney Harbour, to local gardens and other photogenic places. His photostream has 335 items, compared to my pitiful 63. His blog, also my sister blog (lightsshades) is mainly run by me, and I am struggling to keep up with the amount of photos he has and I have heard he has more and more photos on the line from the trip to Europe. I continually find that his philosophy is almost exactly the opposite as mine. But that just makes things interesting as you can probably tell from the content I put up on his blog.
There is a lesson to learn from me. If you are going to take a photo, make sure you know what you are doing. Snapping photos randomly gives you a rate of about one interesting/useful photo to three thousand.
It’s possible if you bring a state-of-the-art 1.3 terabyte hardrive on all of your vacations though. Thats what I ended up doing.
Have a nice Monday!
