Welcome to the New iLHP

As I had eluded last week, there will be some exciting changes coming for ilovehatephotography.

First and the most obvious, is the new look.  We’ve stuck with the old “Clean Home” theme since 2010, and it was about time to update things a bit with our new “Twenty Fourteen” layout. All of the topics are nicely arranged in the top menu and recent articles are on the left. Three different articles will be featured every week at the top of the page. Sometime it’s our most popular post, otherwise it’s a blast from the past. Either way, we hope you like our new look!

Second change is a biggy. ilovehatephotography is no longer a hookey single author blog. We are transforming it into an online magazine and an artistic collaborative between 4 photographers. Each artist have their own specialty. Each will start with an introductory article, but if you are eager to see who we are ahead of time, check out the About page. Our official launch date will be July 7, 2014. So stay tuned.

Lastly, and most importantly, we here at iLHP are committed to bringing you new original content every week. We have a lot of new ideas. In addition our usual gear reviews and discussions about the art of photography, we plan to bring you pro photographer interviews, exotic travel stories, tips and tricks on post processing, photographic critiques, and more. In the near future, we also plan on featuring amateur and semi-pro photographers like yourselves and give you a chance to publish your works here on this website.

We hope you are excited as we are. :)

 

My Introduction – A Love Hate Relationship

My Introduction

Since April of 2008, it has been two years since I picked up my first DSLR. I’ve shot roughly 25000 frames. An average of 35 frames per day. A roll of film, each day, for the past two years then. I’ve grown from a complete photography newbie to what I would consider an obsessive amateur.

My Introduction

I absolutely love visual art, paintings, sculptures, and films, but I myself am hopeless at drawing, sketching, or painting. So, photography is my creative outlet. I have a love hate relationship with the craft. I often find that capturing the moment means being behind it, not within it. Yet, observing through a lens has opened me to unexpectedly new perspectives on life.

My Introduction

[2014 Edit:] I started this website initially as a portfolio of my work, but it has grown into an collaboration between photographers. An art collective if you well. We talk about anything camera or photography related. Industry news, recent purchases, vintage cameras and what have you. It’s going to be great.
My Introduction

We love questions, comments, suggestions, criticisms, fanboy-rants, and everything else that comes with writing down your opinions for all to read. There is a real person behind these words and he’d love to know what you think about his small corner of the internet.

Best regards,
