I am no photographer; I may be obsessed with photography and with taking the odd picture or two, can argue about photography bags and talk about lenses like I know what I am doing, but I do not consider myself a photographer. Or should I say photographr. Having started this obsession and not having an audience, I found it difficult to tell which of my photos were any good. By that, I mean which photos other people liked. Sure, I could post them on facebook and my darling friends would comment and leave lovely comments, but they were my friends. Then I discovered flickr. I love to browse flickr…their explore page has left me gobsmacked on many on occasion and I have been known to phone my husband at work to ask him how a particular shot was taken (I told you I was obsessed). I post the odd photo, enter it into as many relevant groups; you would be amazed at the quantity of groups on flickr, it is astounding! Then I wait to see if anyone takes the bait. Some photos work better than others, but that’s what I’m trying to learn, so that’s good. Then I found tumblr. Wow. I love tumblr. With a passion. Part blog, part facebook, part flickr. It has everything. And I can do slideshows of my pictures…..and so the obsession continues.

I been having the same issue. All these pictures and no idea what to do with them BECAUSE I am a novice two shy away from amateur I just point and click! I have a flickr account and I have heard people shouting the virtues of tumblr so I guess I should give it a try. Cool thanks for sharing your input

Gayle. Give it a go! It’s full of angst-ridden teenagers and cooks who post way too many pictures as far as I can tell, but I’m loving it. I love the way my blog comes out on it; full slideshow with each posting of 4 pictures. It’s gorgeous.

Kirstin, you may not consider yourself a photographer but that’s exactly what you are. Your pictures are beautiful and I can just imagine them in any fashion publication. Good for you.
