haha.. I would hope.. not to many people comment like you though.. so I have no idea what people are thinking about my work.. haha "work" it feels so funny calling it that.. because i am not a real artist like you
I don't know why that is. It's a shame ... I think the best thing you can do is share your thoughts about a piece.
That's sweet of you to say ... I must admit that I never felt comfortable calling myself an "artist" until only a couple of years back. I hadn't felt like I'd earned it. It was only when other people called me an artist that I allowed myself to say it. So I understand ... but you should let yourself feel comfortable calling your photographs "work" because that's exactly what they are. You take it seriously enough (to progress and experiment etc) so why shouldn't you. If it helps that's how I view your photos, as work. I know you'll get used to it at one point even if it takes a while ...
it is very helpful.. it cheers me up when i see that someone has commented thoughtfully.. the real problem for me is that I don't even get people that say "your work is total shit.. and here is why".. it's the "here is why" is what I am looking for.. of course you are the exception.. I am guilty for the same thing though.. all I can say is “that’s awesome!.. or cool!” or other such nonsense.. maybe I need to be the change that I seek.. right?
you are so awesome.. as a friend and a wonderful artist
hehe.. progress.. progress progress.. progress
thank you again friend .. I got to stop listening to this Tom McRae you recommended.. or maybe I will wait till it takes its full effect
The problem is that DA has become really quiet of late and it seems that people are taking even less time to comment. I'm guilty of that too. Once you have your day to day pressures off and get back to your photography maybe things will have changed once more ... and then you can seek out the critique ... from someone other than me ... but I know I'm great and all (hehe) ...
I had to read this comment now, it made me feel like listening to Tom McRae again. Midnight is the perfect time too! I hope that you waited for the full effect. It's completely worth it to soak in the atmosphere!
Anyway, it's always a pleasure and you are an extremely awesome and brilliant friend too!
(I've got a collection of your comments, don't be surprised if I answer something from a few months back, lol)
