You know what the best camera for street photography is? A point & shoot camera. We live in an era will you can get a full-frame camera (Sony a7iii) for under $2000 and that’s considered a steal, but what we forget is that all this innovation has caused consumer friendly cameras to have professional specs. Entry level cameras that are releasing today are right on par with high-end prosumer camera’s that released a few years ago.Read More
I ripped my favorite pair of jeans this year. It was well over due as I wore them everyday for pretty much 3 years. I tried my hardest to salvage them, took them to tailor and tried to have them patched up. This worked for about a month, but shortly after a new rip appeared and then the seem began to split. At that point I knew it was probably best to let them go.Read More
2018 wasn’t the best year for me. My health deteriorated, I had difficulty finding a place to live and I had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. It was really a roller-coaster…. One the got stuck upside down midway through the ride and had me hanging for dear life… Yeah, that’s a good way to define it. Most people would say they needed this type of year to set themselves up for a more successful one, but honestly, I could have done without it. I’ve never been so frustrated in my life, I’ve never felt so defeated. I was losing my mind and it took everything in me to get back on my feet. With that being said, I still managed to get out and take some photographs.Read More
It’s 2019 and you know what that means… New year, new me! Yes I’m one of the people who believes in new years resolutions, sue me. But in all seriousness, I see nothing wrong with looking back at the previous years and making adjustments going into the next. It’s healthy and necessary in my opinion. With that being said my focus for the new year is my YouTube channel. I’ve come to the realization that I thoroughly enjoy it and outside of taking photographs it’s the only thing that I’m super consistent at.
What I’ve decided to do is stop randomly uploading videos and move to a more structured practice. Below is the schedule, I hope you guys support the channel as much as you do the blog. If you haven’t subscribed than don’t hesitate!Read More
Editing is something I always preach about, time and time again I see street photographers posting images SOOC (straight out of camera) and it makes me cringe. I blame it on the film era, back then you could just pick a film and it would have a distinct look. But now you have to do it through a computer and I think the transition has been way to complex for people.Read More
I’ve been shooting with the Sony a7iii since April. Its hands down one of the best cameras I’ve ever used. Typically during this time I’d be looking to buy something new, I have about a 6-8 month stint with cameras, but the a7iii…. it’s different. I’ve never thought about selling it or upgrading it and I strongly believe I’ll stand by this statement several years from now.
With that being said, I wanted to share some of the things I love about it. These things are based around my shooting style as both a freelancer and street photographer.Read More
It’s good to have photography friends. I made a few stories on Instagram regarding some interest in film photography and within a day I had a film camera, preloaded with… you guessed it, film! My friend Andy (@ashieldsphoto) dropped off his Yashica-Mat TLR off to me. I don’t know much about the camera, besides the fact that Vivian Maier had a similar looking one, but I picked it because the film that was loaded into it only held 12 exposures.Read More
