I've been writing this blog and populating it with photographs since 2009. We've covered so many topic and in so many ways. At this point we're also coming up on 25,000,000 page views directly on the site and over 80,000,000 indirect page views (according to Goggle). I'm not nearly finished with this whole photography thing (love taking photos for work and pleasure) but I thought I'd take a breath and ask for some feedback from consistent readers.
Are blogs totally obsolete?
Are videos the new blogs?
Are we still supposed to dislike HDR?
Do you want to hear about what I'm shooting with (gear) or should I bone up on my Roland Barthes and Claude Levi-Strauss and just write about the philosophy of image making in a post intelligent society?
Are we happy with the general guidelines of not talking about politics or should I spend more time pissing about half of you off?
Do you hate downtown Austin now or are you willing to see more photographs of the nihilistic hipster environment?
"Hold that thought."
Who are your current favorite photo bloggers (besides me, of course)?
Who are your current favorite photo Video-loggers? Don't say "Jared Polin" Please. Don't.
Are we soooo over 4K video yet? How about raw video formats? And those pesky codecs?
One thing I'm pretty certain about but feel compelled to ask; you DO want to read more about swimming, right?
Will small sensor camera systems die off? If we look to archeology I'd bet we'll kill off the dinosaur cameras first....
Will Nikon survive? How about Olympus? Will Sony snuff out all competitors and then exit the market to concentrate on VR? Where will we get new cameras to argue about?
Will Fuji ever get around to putting image stabilization in any of their APS-C cameras other than the XH1? Will Canon transition to 21st century sensors? Will Olympus ever hire someone rational and sane to write their camera menus? Is Pentax still in business?
Why the f-word to people walk around and shoot with their lens hoods mounted on backwards? WHY?
Should I consider the recent demise of comments to indicate a waning of interest which might suggest I turn my attention to something else other than writing about photography? Hang gliding? DIY surgery? A career in fast food? Actuarial Science?
Macramé? Scrapbooking? Politics?
Are you getting bored with black and white portraits of people?
Can we narrow down who invented the combo words, "Dealer Killer" then hunt them down and verbally repudiate them?
"Need the info...." (from Dr. Evil. Austin Powers #1).
