You guys know I visit this beautiful city every year. People often say "Don't Brooklyn my Detroit", I can agree with that statement, but you can Chicago the shit out of my Detroit any day you want. I spent 3 days in the city, but only 1 day photographing.Read More
When VSCO launched VSCO X I was unsure about the mobile apps paid program! I wanted to sign up, as I love how these presets allow you to keep a consistent look amongst your images, but VSCO already offered so much for free I didn't quite know if paying for the service was worth it. I did a Google search, couldn't find any information on it myself, so I decided to bite the bullet, subscribe to the service ($19.99/year) and write up a full review of the product.
Today I used Lightroom Mobile to capture images on the street for the first time. I recently remembered that you can sync images from Lightroom Mobile right to the Lightroom desktop application. This was huge for me as I'm fucking tired of syncing via Airdrop... It legit takes forever to select which images you want to import.
Anyway, when syncing the images I noticed each one took about 10-20 seconds, quite long, but worth it considering the images were RAW. This also gave me a little bit of time to inspect each image. I had nothing else to do so I looked over them one by one as they dropped in. I didn't make any changes, simply evaluated them based on quality.
In each image (for the most part) I noticed something that I didn't quite see in real time... Now I know, to a certain extent, this is expected, I'm looking at still images of a live moment, surely I couldn't see everything during the time of photographing, but man, some of these things were right in my face and I didn't even notice themRead More
It's been a while since I've been on a photo walk. In fact, the last one was at Eastern Market with the same group. Every time I go to these type of events I come home with a small amount of photographs, I've finally come to the conclusion that photo walks aren't for me... At least when taking street photographs is the priority.Read More
I've been slacking on keeping up with things, running the blog as well as trying to find my voice on YouTube has been a bit more difficult than I anticipated. Here's a video a few of you may have missed!Read More
Took the time to build a special kit for everyone out there. Here are 10 inspirational street photography books that at some point you should check out. I'll continue to add to this kit a I read more, but I definitely think this is a great starting pointRead More
One of my main goals for the 2nd half of the year is to explore my city more. A lot of my work takes place in Downtown Detroit and quite frankly I'm getting bored of the area. It's the same people, the same shot over and over again. Here's my first attempt photographing outside my comfort zone, here's my recent street session in Mexicantown. I only had a short time to photograph there, but I'm definitely going back.Read More
