Well, it's been a couple of months since I have published my work here on the web. To be honest, it has been a lot of work trying to get noticed in this vast virtual world. It's even more difficult cultivating my social networks. The competition out there is fierce. There's so much out there and everyone thinks they're a photographer. Well, isn't that what is being promoted today? Photography is subjective, but, not everyone is a "Photographer".
Personally, I consider myself a fine art photographer. I have a vision and knowledge that goes beyond even that title. Am I for everyone, absolutely no. But, I have years (not tell how many) of darkroom experience, awards, schooling and knowledge that is in alignment of what a fine art photographer should be. In my opinion, he or she is a visionary soul that reaches in and sees a story that needs to be visually told.
I'm not setting out to be critical by no means, but, I have seen how the web is acting like the great arbiter of information. It's a bit frustrating. You have to join social networks to separate yourself and that becomes the same thing. So what's the answer?
My vision as a whole here on the web is to explore how far my creativity can go and share it with people who will appreciate my craft. So, as I write this small posting, I realize that balancing it all is not easy, but, I do love challenges.
What do you think about the web and all the information that is out there?
