Ramblings and insight on photography

Hello World!

Being a developer by trade I couldn't think of a better title for the 1st post of this blog :)

After spending some time on photography social networks I got tired on how, unfortunately, most of them seem to have degraded into some sort of place where people comment each others photos just for the sake of it. Anything resembling constructive feedback is as rare as a unicorn. And there's also the constant invites to the "amazing" groups and the annoying logos and graphics "as seen on XYZ group!". Suffice to say, I wanted something else to show case my work and Facebook or Google + don't quite cut it.

For a while, I toyed with the idea of making my own website from scratch, I am a programmer after all! But I knew that despite learning a couple of new things (I work on an area completely unrelated to web), the additional time and effort necessary would only demove me from ever getting a decent and finished website. And my designs skills are also very poor. While listening to some podcasts (The Art of Photography and RAW Talk), I heard about Squarespace which is the service I ended up using to build this website (and no, I'm not getting anything for this publicity).

On to the site/blog!

My main idea is to showcase my work and also share some insights/ramblings on photography and related topics. Since my three favorite types of photography are Macro, Travel and Portraits, expect a lot of those site-wide. On the blog, I'll try to cover a wider range of topics from gear to artistic discussions and including some tutorials and examples.
