For the Bloggie and Digg newcomers!

As I mentioned yesterday, I am having a Susan Lucci moment with the Bloggie Awards, having somehow gotten a nomination (vote here!). That, combined with the Digg thing has resulted in 250,000+ views on my pictures and blog in the past 72 hours. So, I thought it would be worthwhile to give the newcomers a grand tour.

It’s a bit like giving a tour of a studio apartment, because the site is fairly one-dimensional. It only has my photography, which purists find abhorrent and I get angry emails from people who actually believed their teachers when they were young and told them never to “draw outside the lines!” Hey, it’s art, okay?

There is an About Me page if you are curious, which appears to show me stealing some firewood from some Amish children. Also, I get a lot of questions about how I do this sort of photography, so I made a poorly worded and irregularly flowing tutorial here.

And since there are so many newcomers, I thought I would re-post a few of my shots from recent months that helped to get this blog so popular and helped to spawn a bunch of angry emails from people whose hands smell like developing fluid…whatever that stuff is called… I dunno I’m all digital since it’s 2007 and web 2.0 and TechCrunch and everything.

  • You, my friend, are probably the most blessed person I know. I believe you must have made a deal with someone, but I won’t say who, as to not upset your yuppie-weirdo friends.

    Call me boring, but I think The Monkey is still my favourite. I actually meant to inquire if that one had been purchased/how much were you asking for it?

  • I just LOVE your work, every photo is amazing! You’ve got my vote! A hug from Panama 🙂

  • Hey thanks everyone!

    You know I will give you a deal on the monkey shot 🙂

  • Susan

  • To merge or not to merge. I just started playing with the trial Photomatix. I do not understand how you can combine images and still have a leaf fairly sharp in mid-air or capture a farmboy closeup (shown in portfolio) with three images and maintain a still life like motionless end product, or get a night shot of Manhattan that requires super long exposures and requires a few exposures, but comes with minimal movement. Are you shooting and merging or are you not merging and achieving amazing results in post proccessing? Sorry, gotta know.
