500, flickr, photoshop and your thoughts?

Published June 6th, 2011

I joined 500px after mounting frustration with flickr, facebook and other photo sharing services. I needed a place where I could start to build a portfolio of work. I'm no full on photographer - actually truth be told a 2 min walk through the photos here on 500px has me in total awe of the level of work here.

On flickr - I can compete with those considered "Good" - here on 500px, I am but a hack, a trigger happy amateur. And that's the difference - flickr is for anyone and everyone. 500px seems to be for those a bit more serious.

I whipped out the camera and started shooting. I was kicking myself for NOT taking the tripod, but was also very glad of the "Hand Held Twilight" mode on my Sony a55 - meaning I could still get some great shots
