Browsing by Newest, v9 +Thoughts on Mobile

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 10, 2014, 10:23 AM



Okay so the mobile app is installed on my phone (a Blackberry 10 phone; you can install Android apps on Blackberry phones - just download the APK file via whatever online service you want to use to bootleg it, or shoot me a message and I'll forward you a copy) and I'm enjoying it. I like that it's not too cluttered, I love the notifications versus full message centre, and I particularly love how it displays literature deviations in Browse mode:

I'll like it even more when they let you customize the image your work appears on top of, as right now even lit preview images don't override the default thing that's showing up. I do find the load times on the browse-type pages are a bit slow, but since I'm not running it on the "proper" platform I guess I really can't assume it's that slow for everyone else. Overall? Definitely recommend you download this shit.

Oddly enough, having the new logo for the site as the shortcut to the app on my phone is going to make the adjustment to that godforsaken cockeyed Z% a lot easier too. Good call on the penetration, guys.

Ps. Find that lit piece, one of today's DDs, at this thumb:
  The Writer and the SwitchbladeOf course he had a lighter. Most traveled men do – it’s part of the pack of essentials any lot knows to take with him when tramping the grounds beyond his doorstep: a lighter, a knife, a compass, a bundle of rope, a hookshot, a can of precooked beans, a harmonica, and a pint of the good stuff for when the going gets tough. He had a lighter in hand, I saw, and I spied the hilt of a knife clipped to his belt toward the small of his back: a proper and polite degree of warning to any passersby. However, his clean-shaven chin, expensive watch, and smooth-pressed jacket all spoke to a more scholarly aspect: a boy fresh out of school looking for adventure in deeper waters. His eyes, a youthful green, bore all the shrewdness of a ten year-old child and just as much lack of experience. His hands fiddled idly with the lighter’s switch, making it click on and off in perfect imitation of any rough-and-tumble fellow seen on the big screen, and, seeing this, I knew quite instantly 

Another Thought

Somehow, even though there is a group for literally everything else on this site, there still isn't one for commercial photography - except for the fashion-specific ones. There's no group for general business-oriented commercial photography: packshots, product shots, executive and environmental/documentary portraits, aerials/architecturals, PR crap, flaky advertising images, the whole spectrum. You can tell the lack of cohesion in the commercial community just by browsing the galleries; they're underused by commercial photographers, who tend to toss stuff in Portraits or Still Life/Conceptual instead, and are pretty full with advertisements for whorehouses in Montreal and hotels in Beirut. And yet we do have some active, talented commercial guys and ladies around the site who keep the quality high, when you can find that magical piece that isn't a miscat.

Anyone interested in starting up a group? You'd have my support as much as you needed it, even if you needed a cofounder, and you can have all my notes and papers and crap about the community here and the commercial photog world in general. I might even be able to fellate up a supergroup sub for you.

My features this week include some stuff that came through my message centre in groups, plus some stuff I found browsing street, darkroom, conceptual, APN and still life by both newest and undiscovered.

I'm the picture-taking former Gallery Moderator for Photography who proselytized about pringles, pandas and polaroids. I'm a once-upon-a-time lit kid who's had a poem published here and there.

I was around the site, dAmn and IRC on a few other accounts on and off since late 2001, most notably `IBinsanity, where I probably left you with a very favourable first impression.
