It’s now officially been over a year since I last updated my photoblog. It kind of blows my mind considering photoblogs should take a lot less work than a wordy blog like this does to maintain. The process should be quite simple:
Take a picture
Process the photo
Write a few sentences about the photo
Post the photo
Yet here I am, without a post in 12 months. What a mess. Luckily I’ve promised myself that I would put an end to not blogging and doing the things that really make me happy. Also lucky for me? I get so many wonderful opportunities to take photos and make art out of them. Or at least what I consider my art.
This weekend my mom flew into San Diego to celebrate my birthday a bit early. I turn 30 next Saturday… Wish me luck on that one. More on all that later, I promise!
This post isn’t supposed to encapsulate all the fun and adventures we went on but I did want to use it as a way to hold myself accountable of making at least five updates to my photoblog in the upcoming week. Oh, quick note, all of the following images were taken with my Pentax MX-1. The most hipster of seriously-cool range-finder-ish digital cameras.
Let’s hope I don’t fail us all! It’s time you all start holding me accountable! There, I’ve passed my failure onto you.
After a several weeks of my PiczarPhoto site being incredibly slow and much research, I decided to move from the WordPress and Yet Another Photo Blog (YAPB) plugin system for something especially made for photographyblogging.
So with no further adeu, my new PixelPost photoblog.
The system is both faster to browse and faster to manage. It isn’t as beautiful on the backend as WordPress but the speed is so much better and the number of plugins to increase its functionality are endless.
Check out the new site and start leaving comments there. I am going to work this week to move everything from PiczarPhoto to the new site, along with comments (one at a time). Once everything is moved over, I’ll redirect PiczarPhoto.com to go to JustinMooreScott.com
I am very excited about this new option for me and can’t wait to see you guys over there! I cannot express enough how much I appreciate your comments and critique. You cannot become a better photographer without studying other people’s work and taking criticism, both good and bad.
