....and another thing.

There is this idea that users have on Facebook/Tumblr and other social media sites where photo-sharing is common, that commenting 'Amazing!' on a picture is a nice thing to do for a photographer. While I understand and appreciate the sentiment, if you're reading this, then you likely have at least a passing interest in photography, so please, PLEASE, when you comment on an image you like, by any photographer anywhere on the interwebs, PLEASE give a few words to why or what you like about the image.

The reason is that no matter what image gets posted, no matter how out-of-focus, or tacky the concept, or how horrid the lighting or how devastatingly bad the wardrobe or how ghastly the coked-out model is, invariably there will be people who write "great shot" or "awesome" or, (my personal nemesis), "Amazing!".  This is particularly true if there is nudity involved.

So if you see something you like, help a shutterbug out and let her/him know why. "I love the tones in this image"; "The lighting here is wicked". "Gorgeous model and I'd die for those heels!" - that kind of stuff lets us know that you're actually seeing (not just looking at) the image. And it helps us know what is working, and conversely, what is not.

Okay, first rant out of the way. Welcome to my blog. It's going to be amazing.
