Another relaunch!

usa97-09-12I have a bad habit – I tinker with my websites. I’ve been tinkering with this one for a while now and it’s time to relaunch.

So, here it is. A new blog, and a new way of laying out the galleries. I wasn’t planning to relaunch until it was “done” but I’ve decided there’s no such thing when it comes to my websites. I still need to tidy up a bit of the content, and add some stuff to the galleries.

As for the galleries, you’ll see that the homepage lists the recently updated ones. At the moment that just represents the order in which I built them, but as I add content it’ll be reflected in that list. Although there are some nudes on this site, they should all be in the “reasonably safe for work” category. My other site has the stuff that isn’t quite so safe.

The image above is a random old one, and is an example of the work still to do – going through old slides and adding them to the galleries. I want to concentrate on new stuff as well, though, and hopefully having a shiny new site will prompt me to get myself in gear to shoot stuff to show on it!

That’s what I usually do when attempting street photography – take my camera for a long walk and come back with a handful of photos. Well, a handful would actually be a good haul – more often than not the camera stays in the bag, or at best around my neck.

Street photography, I may have to finally concede, is not my thing. I’d love to be good at it, I’d love to be one of those photographers who has the confidence to even do it, but I just find it hard to get past the self conscious stage. It’s a vicious circle, I know. The more you look self conscious about taking pictures, the more likely you are to be noticed. The confident street photographers snap away as if it was the most natural thing in the world and are probably never noticed. Read More…
