It's been a while, but now I'm back!

Published November 24th, 2012

Up till now I hadn't used 500px much, but that's about to change. Previously I only had a few pictires posted on 500px and was not quite sure how I would use it. The black friday 50% off sale was just too much for me to resist, so BAM, now I'm Awesome! Along with that I can now set up seperate sets to better organize my images. It also happens that I deleted my Lightroom plugin and had to reinstall it, unfortunatly I lost my links to my previously posted images. Oh well. I've just deleted all of my unlinked images, comments, likes, and all. Time to start fresh it is. :-)

First Day on 500px

Published December 18th, 2011

Well I decided to get on 500px. Lots of new stuff to get familiar with but it looks pretty nice so far. Increasing ones exposure is never a bad thing, or at least shouldn't be. I'll be adding more pictures in the coming weeks. For starters, I'll be adding stuff I have taken with my iPhone. Don't get me wrong! I'm not just an iPhone kind of guy, I just think it can produce some very interesting images. I'll keep iPhone pics isolated to their own gallery, once I figure that part out.

It's amazing how many great photos I have seen on 500px. I hope to meet many of the fine photographers whose work is displayed here.
