A friend of mine reached out to me a few days ago. She wanted to know the proper way to export a photograph from Lightroom. I was a little shocked she was asking that question, since she’s an experienced photographer, but I walked her through it none-the-less.
One of the things I told her was to export the photograph at 60% quality, so it can take up less space on her hard drive, bu also because 100% might make your photograph look overly sharp. This was a tip I had heard from a YouTuber a few years back. I then told her to choose JPEG of course and explained to her how a TIFF could also be beneficial for future projects. She thanked me, we hung up the phone and then I forgot about the whole ordeal. Read More
Yes folks, I have switched to the dark side. I’m officially made the switch to film photography! Okay, I’m just kidding, I haven’t 100% made the switch, but I did buy a few rolls of CineStill 800T and I invested about $15 into a point & shoot camera, the Olympus Stylus Zoom 140. I was turned on by a YouTube video that I saw BigHeadTaco post. His images were so cinematic and honestly, they just blew me away. Read More
Took the Fujifilm XF10 out for a little spin. I only had 30-45 minutes to shoot as I had an upcoming gig, on top of that it was negative something outside… It’s getting so cold. I know you guys are waiting for a review, for this camera as well as some other bodies/lenses I’ve shot with. Thanks for being patient, it’s all coming soon, In the meantime, check out this video and don’t forget to subscribe!!! Read More
I used to photograph at night simply to get out of a funk… But now I’m starting to actually enjoy it. It’s a completely different scene out there. My typical photo process is to take close up images of subjects that I think are interesting. In that image I either capture them looking at me or I try to capture an expression that tells a story (angry, sad, happy). At night, I simply can’t do that. No one is going to let me come with in a few of inches o them, it’s just to sketchy, thus I have to tell stories from a far, which isn’t my area of expertise. Read More
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
