i’ve been taking a lot of photos this year, more than ever before. it was actually one of my goals for 2011.
with the recommendation of mari and a few others, i picked up a panasonic gf1, which packs the basic sorts of SLR features in a compact frame. i made a goal to carry the camera around everywhere, both here in nyc as well as when i travel. (i envisioned i’d be like bill cunningham: going around the city with it always by my side). i carry my iphone4 with me everywhere and use that quite a bit to take pictures and to tell a story. but i wanted something a little more powerful that i could use to learn more about photography and to get me to take better pictures.
i took a lot of photos over the last few months, but i never really shared most of them anywhere.
so, last night, i decided to choose a few of them, do a little postprocessing (learning new skills!) where necessary and i have started publishing them on tumblr. it took a little while for me to decide which platform i wanted to use to post my photos (flickr? 500px? tumblr? roll my own?) but in the end i decided to stick with tumblr (more on that hard decision in a future post). my tumblr used to be a rehashing of other people’s posts and random commentary sprinkled here-and-there of things i found interesting. too often, it felt like i was posting things there for postings-sake, instead of learning something and making something. so i’ve decided instead to make it all about original posts: photo posts.
