I fell in love with photography some 8 years ago when I first bought a Minolta dImage 7, and after all this time I still find in it my way out!
I know it is obvious I love photography but, if I have to be completely honest, it is a real love/hate relationship.
IT IS DANGEROUS
I often find myself, while driving, looking around identifying potential locations or admiring the colors of the sunset just to wake up at the sound of the honking car behind me who’s driver started to get impatient. So far I’ve been lucky with these moments
The rise of digital photography helped get a lot of people involved with photography, and now those people are looking for the next level Film (yeah, film).
Feeling negative is home base for the new-age film photographer, they are there to help you explore this amazing medium. You will find interesting discussions on things like old cameras and lenses, various films (expired and current), DIY equipment, darkroom stuff, and (grudgingly) computer stuff relevant to film photographers. They give back to the film photography community by featuring photos, articles, and equipments.
I don’t know what to say, I am sick of finding excuses and I am sorry for the delay. However life has been crazy at work lately I’ve been working till 2 am everyday and when I don’t I’m trying to spend some time with my kids !
I thank you all for your thoughts and emails and I feel really bad about my silence and I will update what’s missing soon by the end of this week I promise.
A few weeks ago I got the following comment on one of the flickr rounds
This is not the right way to vote for the picsâ€¦ here are some very poor composition also , people are just marketing their pics and force people to vote for their pic onlyâ€¦ is that the way for a photography competition ?? I don’t think so â€¦ lol .. its just making fun of the real creativityâ€¦ !!!
Although I find this comment harsh and untrue, it got me thinking that you deserve to know how pictures end up published here on adidap.com
It seems there is a cool thing on the net called “Five Things Meme” and I’ve been tagged to it by my friend and fellow photographer Shawn
So here is my list trying to stay away from photography (as much as possible that is)
