Well, technically I'm already there with five token images, but I'm currently an inactive member.Both Nic...... Come on over.... You'd do good there...
Cheers, thanks! When I started the 500px account I was processing some images from Nepal about three years ago so I uploaded some of those as "testers".
I'm on smugmug at photographybyolli.com Take a look.I think i may try it. I dont like the Flickr interrface. Ayone try Smugmug, or is there issue there that its not social enough?
Do you sell much from there? I think that the social network photography/art sites might actually be a bit of a hindrance to sales. I like the way smugmug works but it seems awfully expensive to get to the level where you can actually profit from sales. Redbubble has a sales option but the social aspects are a bit of a pest at times.I'm on smugmug at photographybyolli.com Take a look.
It *is* quite judgmental, and those who have been there longest will be the ones on the front page etc etc, OTOH, the presentation, once you have some stuff in there, is really quite nice... I wonder if scores really affect how people see your work? I would hope they don't. :-/I have registered for it but haven't posted anything. The concept seems to be too judgemental for me. While I like to share my photography and also like feedback, the whole 500 thing seems to be loaded with having to be the 'best'. I don't want that to influence the direction in which my photography is evolving which is non-competitive and slowly (very) towards art photography.
