UNEX Blogs: A Primer (AKA Does Blake like torturing himself?)

This is going to be a bit of a long one, probably the longest non-educational photographer blog entry ever written, but just stick with it. It'll all make sense.

So some of you if you have checked out the Underexposed website may have noticed that I have three separate blogs that I am all maintaining at the same time. Honestly its a bit much all of the time. However there is a method to my madness, and I hope to shine some light on that in this blog post.

Firstly if you are new to the site (welcome BTW), or only follow me through Tumblr or Facebook lets start with the basics. 

Before I started my website I was working specifically through Facebook and Tumblr. It got a little, lets say, "messy". My posting style was either feast, or famine. I would either have a LOT of news, or very little. So I decided to actually start three separate blogs so that fans and followers could pick and choose what types of content they received. 

 

The news, or primary blog is the best way to keep up on what is happening with us here at Underexposed. This is where I usually post updates as to who I am working with, where my work will be shown, and general news type updates. This is usually where the majority of my new work will be posted as it becomes available. (Tumblr link for easy reading here).

The extra blog (Tumblr link) takes a little more explaining, although not too much. Anything not considered news is usually posted here. Humorous outtakes from various shoots, experiments with new processes and tools, as well as extra images from content appearing on the main page. Instead of flooding you, the reader, with all of the pictures from a shoot at once I usually post them in more manageable chunks on this blog.

This is where things get a little more interesting. I would assume that most of you know what the acronym NSFW stands for, but for those who don't it means Not Safe For Work. Basically this is where my more "adult" or "exotic" work will be posted. Work for organizations like Zivity, Suicide Girls, and Kink Patrol will be talked about here for the most part. Especially if it involves images of any kind. Luckily Tumblr doesn't so much mind if adult content is posted, however not all social networks are the same. Facebook and Twitter for example are not so keen on having that type of content shown. 

This also allows me to post work that I am becoming more known for, while keeping it hidden from clients that may otherwise pass me by for having that kind of content on the site. Believe it or not, shooting adult content (although something that some people can get behind) isn't for everyone. 

Naturally the NSFW blog (Tumblr link) (as well as an adult portfolio) are hidden from the main page so that they are not immediately visible to the casual passer by. 

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Everything that gets posted to any of these three blogs gets automatically filtered through to Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter. So if you want to only follow one source for all of your Underexposed cravings I would recommend the latter two. Links and a brief description of anything that posts will be collected there. For now content on Facebook and Tumblr are mostly the same. But as time goes on I will try to use those in completely different ways. 

So that my friends and followers is a basic primer on why there are so many different ways to view the content on this page. Also it may be why if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter may see multiple posts in a day, or that involve similar sets of content. I try not to spam everyone unless its for a good cause and usually then I will just run the same content on all three pages once or twice just to drive the point home. 

 

In short: I communicate with you all through three very different blogs, as well as social networks. Each one is a little bit different, however I would encourage you to follow them all (ideally through the website proper at UNEXPhotography.com but I know we live in the age of convenience so do what works best for you). Like posts, Share with your friends, write some comments (and I'll make sure to write back). Overall I love interacting with all of you, and like to know what you all think. Why else would I ask so much. 

Hope things make a little more sense now
