I was a huge fan of Flickr when it first came out back in 2005. Once Yahoo bought them the photo host went downhill. No support, no concern for the passionate users. Everyone got so frustrated that pretty soon Flickr was bleeding customers.
That may have changed as of today. Flickr got redesign and added 1 TB of space free for everyone. They also updated their lacking app for Android. I’m cautiously optimistic.
Google Plus Photos Redesign
My approach to photography is always evolving as does my web presence. Thanks to a domain registrar error, all of the former website’s format, images, forms and galleries are lost. The database is wiped. The images were there only for display and backed up of course.
Most people are obsessed with what gear they have or expensive “glass” in their gear sack. I just use what works best for me and is affordable. I am a firm believer in using whatever tools I have to produce images that I want.
We own 2 Nikon DSLRs: the D200 + D90 and a range of lenses for different purposes. When I must, I will use Photoshop and Lightoom. When I want, I use the open-sourced software tools such as the GIMP and Digikam.
On my Android devices, I currently use Snapseed and Pixlr.This website is mostly for me but obviously you are enjoying it as well.
Eventually I will complete my web server project using LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) technology.
This will serve as a media and file server as well as webhost to this site and my personal website
In the past, I relied heavily on Flickr
and enjoyed that community of like-minded enthusiasts. My presence there has been minimal since.
Being an Android and Linux supporter, most of the time I can be seen using Google Plus, Picasa and EyeEm.
Okay, now that the obligatory first post is out of the way, it is time to shoot!
