Any ideas for creative photos for 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend? :)
pick a nice clear evening and golden hour that shit man! and ramp it up to f/5.6 for clarity and sharpness:)
just bought myself a Hasselblad 150mm f/4. Cool.
Taken many shots with your Hasselblad?
Where do you post them?
Okay, so I'm a pretty shit photographer (see: my flickr, but I've got it stuck in my head that I want to move to a DSLR. I'm looking at getting a K-5, but I'm not a professional photographer, I'm just a hobbyist. I sit at computers all day. Should I look at getting a K-r instead?
horrible hobby photographer, sit on my ass all day) and I've ordered myself a Nikon D5100. It's a great camera for beginners and it's not too hard on the pocket, but if you have to decide between the K-5 and the K-r then check this site out, it's really handy.
Do you guys know that feeling when you are at some event, getting pictures and then you see some old people who look kinda creepy and some fat guy with fat hair, pimples but of course two tripods, several lenses and what not who are taking pictures too and you just can't do anything but feel "Oh my god I hope people don't associate me" ?
I mean, there was this really disgusting guy with his tripod and equip and he wasn't moving an inch and snortig all the time and I felt really bad as I was taking pictures too gaaah
I wouldn't be too worried about what a bunch of random people I'll probably never meet again think about me :P
But, I can imagine what you're getting at, and to that I say as long as you present yourself well, no body will put you into the gross-weirdo-camera-guy category heh
so i got a haircut and left the building with a job in wedding photography the other day
Got an invite to "Group with experience" on flickr.. duh
This video is pure photographer porn
bokeh and "3D" lightpainting hng
and ellie goulding is hot as hell
Yeah, every photography simply cannot resist light painting and bokeh abuse.
I for one can't
spread it around, I actually want the tutorial to go to use and stuff.
I'm hearing most towns in my area are cancelling fireworks due to the heatwave/drought, so I'm not sure I'll be able to shoot again tonight. Here's hoping though
I like this video a lot more
also lack of a tripod isn't too much of a bugger, especially if you're doing those bokeh balls. If you're doing sharp stuff it might come out wonky though
also the Adobe Creative Suite official facebook page liked my set and said they'd share it later in the week, woo
Mind giving some criticism on these shots? I liked them when I took them, but I spent like 30 minutes editing these and other really bad shots so I ended up getting tired of looking at them and gave up, even though it still seems like something is not quite right on both.
I have a doctor's appointment later this day. I've always had a lot of birthmarks and I'm starting to think that some of them could be bad. I'm nervous as fuck because in my mind I start to come up with all of these scenarios and shit that it could be something really bad
Good luck in your appointment, I hope it all goes well :)
I know the feeling from the scenarios your mind makes, it's very stressful.
I suffered from depression for some time ago, or at least depression as I know it. For the most part, I'd be fine in the mornings, but then I'd get this sudden overwhelming feeling of pure dread over me, and it would force me to shutdown for the rest of the day or so. It all started when I was just playing Starcraft 2 with my brother, and I got a sudden migraine. First thing my mind went to was "oh my god it's a brain tumor!", which doesn't even make sense in afterthought because AFAIK headaches are not really the thing to look out for for brain tumors... anyway! After that thought, my whole body felt insanely heavy, and I just wanted to shut down.
It kept happening over and over, destroying my appetite; crying myself to sleep; you name it. It seems very strange to be depressed by the idea of missing out on life, but because of that thought alone, I DID miss out on things
I realized it was triggered by a fear of death, more specifically it'd happen when I was having a good time (real buzz kill) because I feared of missing out on those moments... Eventually, I just accepted the idea of death, and decided I'd do my best to enjoy my life now, and not dwell on "could-bes" of the future. I'm not saying "YOLO go out and do something stupid" of course haha. I still get the waves of dread even now, but I can overpower them so they don't interfere anymore :)
I don't mean to drive the attention to me, I just wanted to share that part of my life, and maybe it will help you out through the magic of empathy.
Hey kids, I've been asked by a friends sister to do her headshots because she's a budding actress and heading to London in september to start her career and I was wondering if you guys had any pointers?:)
I did for this shot and it worked out pretty well in my opinion since my jawline is pretty bad.

so far im thinking getting good communication going, cracking jokes and asking deep questions to evoke good emotions, opposite lighting to rid bad shadows, eye level camera and sticking head a little out, anything else i should consider?
