I have this strange idea that nature photography is boring, unless you find some really spectacular landscapes, but looking through these pictures I feel that maybe I should give it another go I really enjoy all of your feature journals, but I think my favourites are the nature-themed ones
Oh I hope you won't stop, you really have an eye for it! But yeah, I understand that putting them together must take a long time, and a lot of work. Do you have a schedule for when you post your features? Maybe it would make you feel less pressured to tell yourself that you don't have to do them as often
Thank you! Honestly it isn't about making beautiful collections but reaching out to underrated artists and deviations. And by taking the time to color code them, size them, count them, etc and put them together the way I do is in the effort to attract attention to them instead of just randomly featuring them so it feels cohesive and attention-grabbing and unlike other features that we may see often.
Yes I have a schedule on my calendar. You mean do them less often? So then how often do you think I should create & post them? Once a month would definitely be feasible but it seems it wouldn't be as effective since I would be helping 1/4 of what I usually do. Also some watchers like yourself may want more than 1 a month.
Ah yes, I understand. But as you say, I think it's all that extra effort, the things that make the collections themselves pleasing to look at, that also makes me notice the pictures individually. Sometimes I feel that things get lost in the clutter among the newest images, not only because there are so many pictures, but because they are of such varying quality that sometimes you just glance over something really good because it happens to be right beside something so-so...
Well, if it's between doing features less often and stopping all together because it's too much work I say do them less often. Maybe you can set a goal for yourself of doing one feature a month, for instance, and if you have time for more you can simply have extra in-between features?
