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.
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*
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.
I’m just going to start off saying that filming and editing interviews is a lot harder than it looks. 1) because not only do you have to control the cameras, but you have to make sure your subject stays in the right stop. 2) you have to keep a consistent look and feel through the whole thing. How the person answers questions, what’s in the frame between takes; was it there in the last take or did it move? 3) if you’re using two cameras you have to make sure the colors look the same. This is a must!
As photographers, we love getting the shot. Typically we aren’t just taking one shot either. We are creating a series or capturing a variety of poses and expressions. For many photographers, the act of capturing images is far more exciting than sitting down to narrow and edit. Even for those who enjoy manipulating their images in photoshop, fixing redundant avoidable issues is time-sucking and annoying. And if you don’t do your own editing, it still takes extra time for your retoucher to fix.
A few weeks ago, some friends and I decided to head out to the West Coast of Vancouver Island for camping. They were going to be camping at a campground near Port Renfrew, and I was going to be heading out for a solo night at Sombrio Beach so that I could get optimal conditions for milky way photography.
Be honest with me for a second… have you ever used your phone to take a picture of your food, with your soul intention being to make your friends jealous #ShotOniPhone… Only to look at that photo and admit to yourself that it looks nothing at all like what’s in front of you, in fact it looks like a total piece of CRAP?!🤷🏼♀️
