Sorry for the lack of blog posts recently.
As you should all know, I've been working on photographing the entire collection, which is only really possible to do whilst AJ is sleeping, or if he is at his gran's or nana's house. So, understandably, it is taking quite a lot longer than I'd anticipated. But, slowly but surely, I am getting there.
Hoping to have a batch of photos up for you within the next few days. I'll probably upload all of a specific type at once. Haven't fully decided on what my first upload will be just yet, though.
This month (and last month) have been pretty quiet in regards to collecting, which is probably a God-send really, as it means that as I've been taking photos of everything, not much else is getting added to the collection, to then bump up the backlog of photos again (also, I've been photographing the things that have arrived as they have been delivered, to get them over and done with quite quickly).
I have taken and uploaded (to my PC) around 1500 pics so far, however I then edit them (rotate/crop/add watermark) before I upload, so in the process, I have lost 500 pics (that were highly inadequate). This again shows just how long it is taking me to photograph everything as I take highly detailed pictures, of each side of the outer box, then of the inside, then of each item included, etc. If I mess up a shot, I just re-take it instantly, which although good (and saves me having to bring out the stuff again at a later date to re-photograph), it then becomes very time-consuming for me to sort out all of the photos I have taken to find the best ones.
So don't worry, the photos that you are all desperately waiting for will be worth the wait!
Anyway, I better head now and do some tidying, that way, as soon as AJ goes for a little snooze, I can get straight into the picture-taking!
