900 watchers

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 19, 2014, 2:50 AM


WATCHERS

So I finally made it. :boogie: Broke the threshold. :dance: Crossed the line. :w00t: 900 watchers has been a long fucking time coming. I broke the 800 watcher mark back in June and the 700 mark in April so this has taken way longer than expected. I put it down to a few possibilities:

* I am now way more hateful than people can tolerate and so anyone with an ounce of sense will gladly ignore me.

* Deviantart has lost a shitload of users. I noticed that if I gained 5 watchers I would lose 10 – particularly around September. Maybe folks got fed up of dA and it’s borky, glitch site. Or the “happy, clappy don’t criticise me or I’ll shatty” community. Or the swell of pervs/attention whores. Or all of the above.

* I have reached saturation point with the groups I am in. Perhaps I need to join new groups to get new watchers.

I shouldn’t really care about watchers but I do. I like the idea of reaching 1000 watchers without posting photographs of cleavage / tatties / clunge.  

 

CALENDARS

Sales are going slowly. I have 22 orders from 50 calendars made. I am fucking glad I didn’t get 100 made this year like I had considered doing. One of the problems is no sales on deviantart. Last year I sold 7 on dA but NONE this year. So the 5 people on the poll who said they WOULD buy one – let me know who you are and LET’S DO THIS :poke: revamped

POSTS

I am currently posting images from my trip to Riga in Latvia :flagoflatvia: . This will go on for quite some time I reckon – maybe only halfway through the series of that city so far :facepalm: After that it will be onto Tallinn in Estonia:EEflag:  and then finally Helsinki in Finland :flagoffinland: but that will definitely be 2015 by the time that comes around. I have a bunch of OLD photos from maybe 2012. They are of graffiti and shitty areas in Belfast. I have them in a folder called Urban Decay BUT…I am thinking to post them as stock. Might be another way to get more watchers perflaps?

 

PHOTOGRAPHY

I have lost interest. It’s official. End it Now I have hardly picked up the camera in the last 6 months. Apart from a trip to London in July and a trip to Dingle in September I just haven’t had the urge. I think part of the problem is that I have been to most places that I want to go to in Northern Ireland. So to get me out again will probably take a new piece of kit. Maybe even a filter. Gladly I have a huge backlog of images so I can keep posting to dA. Or mayyyybe that’s a bad thing says you!? Emote: jump 

 

POST PROCESSING

Having taught myself the frequency separation technique I have earned myself the task of processing my sister’s wedding photographs. So you know….just the million shots to process. What irks me is the bare minimum that wedding photographers do to their images because most couples don’t have a clue what they are getting. HE DIDN’T EVEN DO HIS LEVELS FOR NICE WHITE BALANCE. Sigh. So yeah…I’ll do the job he should have/could have done and then some :nod:

 

LESSONS

I haven’t done a photography lesson in a while either. I have covered off macro, animal, landscape, star and the basics of photography. Any requests for further lessons? I suppose I should really do portrait photography – even though, a bit like macro, I am totally bluffing it. I suppose only half their purpose is to be informative. I prefer to focus on the entertainment of insult :D

 

That’s all that I want to rant / ramble / waffle aboot for now I think. Oh wait…

 

WATCH ME AND BUY MY CALENDAR :squee:

 

Did I say that already?
