Journal History

It's been a while, so I thought I'd check in and say hey to everyone. So here it is: HEY, EVERYONE!

Now that that's out of the way, I hope everyone is enjoying my 365 day project so far. It's been tons of fun, even if it's been difficult to find the motivation to take shots once or twice (sorry about the feet pic, though, you should expect it again the next time it happens). I definitely feel like I've been coming out of my shell a bit, and who knew I was going to enjoy street photography so much? A few of my faves so far are (in no order, whatsoever):

Day 10 of 365 - My Dad is Batman by bawboh86 Day 12 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 27 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 6 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 4 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 37 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 34 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 31 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 26 of 365 by bawboh86 Day 16 of 365 by bawboh86

I think I'm going to migrate everything to a Behance and/or another service, if only to have a less confusing portfolio layout. I want to be able to hand my business card to someone and not have to walk them through how to view my gallery. I'd rather they're able to discover my works themselves, once they're on my page. This does not mean I'm going to become inactive here. On the contrary, I like to keep my photos updated on as many social sites as possible. That includes DA.

There are a couple of snags with this decision that I must work out.

One is: which service? I love Behance's support and their site (seriously, good job Adobe), but I'm afraid that the layout isn't as intuitive as I'd like for the average user (definitely fine for when I'm going to galleries and showing them my portfolio, though). So Behance is 99% likely to happen. I'd like to find another service that's easy to use for non-technical, non-artsy folks. Something like Tumblr, but less owned by Yahoo! Does anyone have any good suggestions? (Hopefully it's clear I'm not a fan of Yahoo!, so that rules out Flickr as well.) 

The other issue is just sheer volume. To make this migration, I'm going to have to go through all of my photos, locate on my HDD/download each one, and then upload it to another site. 1,123 pieces (my current number on DA) is going to take some time to view, locate, organize and upload. I'm feeling *very* motivated right now, but once I get started, this may be the biggest bridge I have to cross.

I'll be sure to update in a new journal entry links to the new profiles and sites, once they happen. Hopefully, whatever new medium I choose helps me get discovered better than my current sites.

Thanks for reading, everyone! I sincerely hope your summers (or winters, for those in the southern hemisphere) are all going very well. :)

I'm a photographer that can't seem to stay in one place for long. I'm that weird neighbor that comes out and takes pictures of seemingly nothing. I started my photography career just a few years ago, and since then have done a few shows, some weddings, portraits, and stock photography for some potters. My true passion is exploring the world and documenting how I see it through my eyes.
