This is weird.
First off: Greetings! I feel as though I haven’t been here in awhile (mostly because I haven’t) because I see many different names posting here now than I used to. Glad to see this place so far survived the Gawker buyout.
Now, to business.
I’ve been busy. I’ve been tired. I found something else to do. I’ve been stressed.
While truthful, these have been the crutches that I have used to justify a lack of productivity when it comes to my photography. This is part of a cycle that I go through on a regular basis, but maybe this is part of the cure this…
I am not a video guy. But a series of happy accidents have happened recently, and now I want to play a bit more. Here’s the result of the accidents:
a small behind the scenes video of another photographer.
I have been attempting to make friends with the ‘faults’ in my photos recently. I typically shoot stuff where everything is clean and clear, which I think has left some of my work kind of stale, devoid of a really emotional connection with the subject. Below are some attempts that I hope you’ll guys can give me…
Taking a break from my usual subject matter, I had an invitation to go “birding” with another photographer. It was overall a pleasant experience, one which I now recognize the patience that bird photographers must have in order to capture those creatures.
But a recent mini-vacation and the urge to play with the newly free Nik Collection ‘forced’ my hand.
I just found this article on The Verge. This is the first that I have seen of an idea that could maybe actually let Canon become a competitor in the mirrorless market (assuming current performance difficulties of the M series are notwithstanding).
Taking a queue from Roflcopter, I’d like to see if I can find a home for my Sony HVL-F60m. Before I take it to the bay of e’s, I’m hoping I can send it to someone who will benefit the most from it.
I just sold my first photo there. Feels weird. On one hand, its cool that the system works, and now I have one more way to make money (in theory). On the other hand, I have no idea who bought the photo, what they are gonna use it for, and where it might be visible later.
Totally an accident. Went for a photo walk in Edmonton’s river valley, and ended up getting a great opportunity to test out my manual focus on moving subjects skills. More Here.
Just simply proud of this portrait. Outcome was exactly what I planned. Just posting to brag. (now go ahead and critique it so make me humble again, thx!)
Poor kid. Her mean dad used her as a stand in for testing a certain type of shot. She was too tired for this shit. But for her dad (me), this is the best and most accurate depiction of her in the moment. There were other pictures where she smiled, laughed and made faces. But this one, technically imperfect because of…
I was stuck in a hotel room for 2 hours with out my stuff while my son had a nap. Left to my own devices, specifically a Fuji x100 and my idle hands, this is the result. Silly self portraits.
No mincing words today. Check out the photos. Let me know what you think. Normally I’d give a run down, but I’m pissed that I lost the majority of the photos to a bad SD card. I’m gonna let you guys guess the cars too (most are obvious).
Just curious what people out there are using for online resources to support their photography. I’m always interested in checking out anything that allows me to shoot more often, improve my skills, or gets me motivated.
no posts today?? Fixed!
Finally got my hands on a colour calibration tool, the Spyder3pro. This calibrator is now 2 models behind, so I got it for dirt cheap. I started realizing that one of these was important as I started printing my photos. Most turned out ok, but there were also some that turned out completely weird but seemed fine on my…
It was a good trip. I had brought initially 2 cameras, one with 2 lenses, but I ended up bailing on carrying my Sony a7ii into battle. The thought of that camera falling into a waterfall or something scared the pants of me. So the following are all taken with a Fuji x20.
