I suck at blogging on any kind of a regular basis- I know this to be true. 😛
But before you
call me lazy judge me, let me explain….
Life handed me an opportunity a couple years ago- and I became a photo editor for a state wide magazine- which means that I get to work on photos from a desk a lot and my shooting time went WAYyyy down.
When I DO get to actually shoot, it is usually an assignment for the magazine, and I can’t post those immediately because the magazine has first North American publishing rights- which means the works submitted can’t be published anywhere else before the issue comes out in print. (Typically a 4 month lead time…)
Since the magazine is about all things WV, and the photos tend to be editorial in nature- which is my specialty by the way- It limits what I’ve been able to post of late- unless it’s an “out take” from said assignment.
I plan on doing better blogging this year- I really do! 🙂 I still have things I want to visually say and share- and I also need to have a reason to shoot personal projects as well! But my idea is to not just post photos- which I do have a few “on the burner” I want to share with you; but to talk about ideas and photography in general.
(Perhaps what goes on from the “other side” of putting out a monthly magazine and the pitfalls I see folks fall into as they try and get their work published.)
Maybe even reach out and answer some questions here and there ( would love to hear back from you about what ideas most interest you on this!)
So….anyway, that’s the reason I haven’t been as “conspicuous” posting and blogging and stuff- I haven’t been ignoring my “followers” on my blogor anyone else for that matter- just been a little busier than usual in a totally different realm!
stay tuned more TK…
