I’ve always been passionate about photography. Especially black and white darkroom photography. There’s something intriguing about the way film catches a moment in time, and then everything keeps moving. Photography wasn’t always so readily available. Nowadays everybody has their hands on a way to take photos, but in high school when all I had was a flip phone, I enjoyed using analog film.
•What was it about old photography and the cameras that were so intriguing? Was it the equipment they used back in the very first camera which was invented by Johann Zahn back in 1865. The first camera he invented was small and portable.
Photo editing is probably one of the essential skills in every industry nowadays. Whether it's for social media, websites, magazines, book covers, and even for your personal use, enhancing images have just been a thing. And the most popular tool to do this is Photoshop.
With the current surge of technology, available it is no surprise that the quality of filmmaking efforts has increased as well. But as we all know, creating a movie is like painting a masterpiece, it requires hard work and specific tools to make that work of art come to life. For that reason you have to try out different mediums or camera equipment in this case, to figure out which one will help convey your message the best.
If you don't love fall, Halloween, or both, I am guessing you're dead inside and we would never be friends, so you can actually get lost. Unless you enjoy reading articles written by people that don't like you... which I sort of respect in a weird way, so I guess you can stay. You don't need my approval. You go, girl*
In such a technologically savvy society and the prevalence of social media you may be thinking about flexing your digital muscles. A great skill I believe the majority of people can benefit from in 2020 is photography. Of course I am heavily biased as I’ve fallen in love with the art in the past couple of years but with the majority of human beings (in western society anyway) being active on social media platforms it helps to know how to take a decent photograph. I also think it’s a valuable skill for anyone in the arts/creative/marketing industries.
Sometime in 2018, I got obsessed with mobile phone photography; a friend had bought Moment lenses, and his Instagram feed was one I couldn't take my eyes off.
When I first started out in photography, especially portrait photography, one of the biggest issues I had was my own confidence and how that affected the model's comfort. When you're naturally an anxious or shy person, working with people and having to confidently direct them and relay your ideas (to strangers, might I add), can feel like the most alien thing in the world.
