Whenever I watch my kids doing homework I remember how thankful I am that I’m not in school anymore…”I’m so glad I’m done” I always tell them. Then it seems I’m always learning something new with photography. Currently plugging away at teaching myself Adobe Premier and when I’ve got time after that I’m working on mastering the new features in Lightroom 4.
So I guess I’m sorta in school…but this time I love what I’m learning.Details
I’ll start by saying I’m enjoying the overall layout and user experience on the 500px site. If you aren’t familiar with the site and you are a photographer I think you’ll be inspired by the work of the other photographers on the site and also enjoy the feature set they offer you as a user. I’m re posting many of my blog posts using their “Story” feature as I really like the layout displaying images in such a large clean format. Take a look and see what you think.
The reason for the title of my post is that I feel the majority of the “Popular” photos on 500px are…well lets just say they aren’t sports photos. One or two might slip in and out of being featured….but they are the minority for now. I have nothing against the shots that are featured by both the popular vote and the editors choices, I’m wondering if this site is where sports photos can thrive like the rest of the categories. I’m seeing more sports photographers beginning to add their images to the site and I’m hoping this trend continues…and I guess for now we’ll remain the minority. I’ll post an update in a few months and hope to report back that sports images are making a surge upward.
…doesn’t always take a lot of action for me to like a shot.

Next month I’m returning to Moab Utah after a two year break. I had visited Moab the previous five years to mountain bike and of course take pictures. Pretty much the perfect combination for me….
I haven’t been out there since I started this blog so I thought I’d share some of my favorite shots from my past trips. As much as I love the riding offered there I always take as much time as I can to get off the bike and shoot photos too. Now if I could get a sponsor to pay me to get out there and shoot their product…
