It's been a long time since I wrote a journal, but I felt like posting a quick update.
I am still around, sort of. I have been taking an unintentional break from photography for the past few years but I do fully intend to get back to both taking photos and posting them here on DA. This won't be for months, if not years, but photography will go back to being a part of my life again sometime in the future. When I do manage to return to photography I will be returning to DA with a brand new account. A lot has happened recently in my life, an awful lot of change, very little of it positive, and I feel like this account represents a time in my life that has passed by. Although I don't think I will delete the account itself I will be removing everything from it: journals (which I've already done), photos, favourites, etc..
Getting my new account will be part of sorting out my photography again. I am planning to go through all of my photos to edit them, sort them, label them, delete some, and generally get them to some sort of completed state. I had a habit of going out and taking new photos before I had properly looked over my old ones, so this time I am going through and sorting them chronologically before I go out and start taking new ones. I am also hoping to get some new photo editing software to help with this, and maybe take a course on how to use it properly. I have never learned how to use editing software to the best of its ability. Although I will never be a photographer who heavily edits their photos I know I can achieve more if I better learn how to use these tools.
When I do get my new account I will be reposting my old photos in chronological order (from when they were taken, not when they were posted) as well as adding more old photos as I go through and find ones that I overlooked the first time. I have a lot of photos from after I got my 7D camera that I was very proud of that never saw the light of day here on DA, so eventually I will be posting those as well. This means I will be reposting the majority of the photos from my old account into my new account.
This account will remain how it is now until I transfer over to a new account, so my photos won't be going anywhere for a long while, and they will be reposted into the new account over time. I'll be posting a link to my new account here when I have it ready.
Thank you to everyone who is still watching me, I look forward to sharing photos with you guys again in the future.
