A long time coming, night terrors, sweaty palms, constant fear. But it’s been worth it.
Those of you who are faithful readers will know that DearSusan is a collaborative blog and that 10 of us take turns at writing fresh articles about topics that are dear to us individually. And that, lately, I have been unusually quiet. Time to explain why.
It will come as no surprise to you that I want to steer DearSusan towards a more modern style of photography. I no longer believe in the supremacy of expensive gear in the hands of wealthy silver foxes. Their time has passed. The future belongs to the young, to the more inquisitive, to the mobile.
This post ushers in the age of mobile photography for DearSusan.
And I’m not talking about an occasional section devoted to camera phones but about a complete overhaul of the blog to accommodate nothing but mobile-photo related posts :
Now I realise this will scare away some readers, and some of my co-authors – who are not aware of this sudden change of direction, but I hope you and them realise it is for the best. Photography went from a messy chemical process to an elegant digital one and some people grumbled. The same will inevitably happen with mobile photography, which I will call MOFO from now on. But think deeply about the endless new possibilities available to you in only a few taps and you’ll soon see the rationale behind all this.
So this is the last post in this format. From #708 onwards, DS will be mobile only. No phone, no read. You need to do your part to benefit from all this pocket goodness.
Consequently, I am selling all my gear. Starting tomorrow, you’ll find my Zeiss & Leica lenses and Sony cameras up for grabs on the Sales page of this blog. Great opportunities for you and a lightweight Galaxy S9 for me. The revolution of photography is mine !
The pictures on this page were made with this new phone. Astounding, right ? Early days yet, but the future is looking bright. So, you too,grab your phone now and send us your best shots !
NB: For those reading this post after its publication date, that date was 01/04. Foolish, right 😉
