Who am I?
Augie De Blieck Jr. 34 years old. Caucasian male. Kinda tall. Resident of Wayne, NJ. Photographer, writer, computer programmer, raconteur.
What do you do?
I am a freelance and event photographer based in Wayne, NJ. My email is at the bottom of this page if you’re looking for someone to shoot your next event/gathering/concert/function.
What is this blog not?
It’s not a highly-specialized and focused thing where you’ll learn everything and anything there is to know about a certain topic. Not flashes. Not Canon cameras. Not HDR. None of that. You’ll see it on the blog, but I’m not running down a specific topic.
In general, I suppose you could call this blog my “photographic journal.” As I do something in photography, I plan to write about it here. As I follow too many blogs, podcasts, and Twitter streams, I’ll have thoughts I’ll put down here. It’s a photographic coming of age story mixed in with education as we go.
Who is this blog for?
Given what I just wrote above, I’d guess it’s for the average photographer looking to learn more about photography, to see how a peer is doing on his “journey” (Thanks, “Bachelor,” for killing that word for a generation.), and maybe just for entertainment.
What are the regular features?
Pictures: As a holdover from this site’s early beginnings as a Pic A Day thing (365 straight in 2009), I still love showing off some pictures I’ve taken, but now I’m able to talk about them at greater length and share what I learned or what’s so special about them.
Follow Friday: Twitter has a tradition on Fridays of suggesting users for others to follow on Twitter. I do that on this blog so I can explain why I’m suggesting specific people to follow.
Photographic Five: A series of mostly humorous Top 5 lists, because people love numbered lists on a blog, and many conventions of photography need to be made fun of.
More, likely, is to come.
Haven’t I Seen This Stuff Before?
Some of it, possibly. I’m in the process of incorporating my photography-related posts from my personal website, VariousAndSundry.com, here. So if you see something familiar, maybe that’s where you saw it first.
