In my week off I spent a lot of that time working. I had the opportunity to do some logo recreation of a sorority’s crest in vector format and I jumped at it. It paid nice, I got to use my Wacom tablet and I could do it at home during that week off. All was set and seeming good.

oh how time flies.

I’ve come to realize that I will never be able to get everything done in a day that I want/need to get done. No matter how hard I try there always seems to be one thing I failed to do on any given day. It’s not necessarily a problem, just an observation.

Recently this has shown itself in the amount of non-work “work” that I get done. I always want to come home and edit photos and make blog posts and just do some generally cool shit. I plan it out at work, I really set my sights on it and then it all goes to shit. I get home, start dinner, eat dinner and then I’m left with a few short hours to do things before I attempt to sleep. Usually, because I’m a nice guy, I try to spend that time with the lady. Unfortunately for the creative side of me that means that the fun photography and design projects get pushed to the side. Now that I realize this issue I’m going to try and find a middle ground. Maybe do a little bit of editing (gotta catch up on a LOT of graffiti stuff) and then hang with the lady.

instagram pile-up: round one.

March 7, 2012

I’ve feel that I’ve been getting a big stagnant with my photography lately. It’s not a stylistic thing but more of a content thing. I used to take pictures of anything and everything and I loved it. I treated my SLR as a point and shoot while still keeping a higher quality, artistic side to it all. Not quite sure why I stopped getting pics of random shit but whatever. To help solve this problem and reacquaint myself with the simpler (and sometimes more fun) points of photography I’ve started using Instragram. It’s been getting me back into the swing of things and I must admit that it’s quite nice to be able to take a quick photo and not have to worry about editing it before I put it online somewhere. Sometimes the editing side of photography keeps me from taking those simpler, non-amazing subject matter photos. I know I’ll just never get around to editing them. I don’t get paid to edit photos of my everyday life so a lot of the time I just don’t do it anymore.

Well, thanks to the powers of the iPhone and Instagram I bring you my Instagram pile-up. When I get enough decent pics that I feel like sharing then this will be the place to put them out to the world. I’m keeping Empty Seats going by using content that comes from the SLR and the blog will now be home to the cell phone pic-dumps. Simple, effective and oh so beautiful. Hit the jump and take a look at all the crap I’ve been up to lately.
