    • Thank you for noticing. It is true. Even though I have made nudes before, the last couple of months I have been given the chance of a workshop in nude photography, and since there was demand for immediate results, I couldn’t devote time to the rest of my work and used photos from the workshop instead. I usually give more time to the photos to sink in and work (some times many months and even years) but these ones had to be rushed in less than 1-3 weeks, so probably that caused the contradiction. However, since I use my archive when I don’t have time to post new photos, this may cause an inconsistency as well. I have been meaning to ask you, how is your workflow, how much time passes between shooting and posting. I rarely post photos right after shooting, both because I am too emotionally attached to them and because I don’t have any time to go through them at a daily basis. But even when I had the time I usually let them for months before making the first selection. How does it work for you?

      • For me, it’s quite the opposite. When I’m out there to do a rather irrelevant professional shooting, I always take along my fuji x100s. When I notice something intriguing, when I’m astonished or touched by something, I stop my van and I start to invest some time, investigating the thing, the situation, the person, the source of my astonishment. It’s even easier while cycling, and certainly less dangerous.
        I always process my pictures instantly, using lightroom 5. And I cannot wait to publish those.
        I have a whole series of ‘spare’ posts.
        After posting I mostly feel emotionally no longer attached to the pictures. In other words : I appreciate those pictures as ‘journalistc’. The images live for a few days and will then disappear.
        The only trace is a ‘blog2print’ book I usually make.
        That’s it.

        • Thank you for your reply! A different approach, alright! But your results are stunning! I always have two cameras with me, one digital, one film and I take photos all the time, usually between work, and obligations. It could have been a diary of my “in between” life, and that is why I hold back, so that I can reveal what can be interesting for more people, than just me, hopefully universal.
