Every once in a while, an Oppurtunity will arise. REMEMBER THIS! Look at that oppurtunity and seize it. Take a risk, bend a rule or three. That Oppurtunity will never come again and you will kick yourself in the ass.
That is all, more later, I’m tired. I seized an opportunity.
Well I have a bit of a busy week ahead of me. Coffee will most definitely be my operating system. For this weeks “One Object Challenge” however, a peaceful caffeinated moment was due. Simple and clean it was. Titus will get a cool pic some where during this week so he’s happy just to try to steal my coffee. …
While the cold is not toooo extreme it has returned. I recently did a post about cold weather photography, on The Phoblographer. The truth is, I hate the cold however I force myself to get out there with my camera. The cold causes a lot of temporary beauty. There are thing that appear for only a brief time, never to be seen again.
Winter has finally taken over, and it’s very cold out there. Ice flows with nowhere to go, and there’s not enough coffee to warm you. Some of us would see this as an opportunity to stay inside with a book–not that that’s a bad thing. Others feel the call of photography. The call to go out and freeze their buts off to get those unique shots that only the cold can bring. Cold can be a stimulant, a challenge to your photography. It’s no use though if you’re out there, hands and camera trembling, and your face feels like wood, dry and cracked.
Here are some tips to deal with the extreme cold.
Well I got it all wrong when I said ” the snows not going to be that bad”. When I found my self headed home early, all I could do was laugh. I did have my camera with me though so I got some frames in on the way home. I used my Nikon D700 along with my Tamron 28-200mm f3.8-5.6. Its not glamorous kit but it gets the job done and I like it.
So last year I ended off the year , in flux. One of the things me and my friend Scott Wyden talked about was slowing down and taking more time to edit photos. Those conversations inspired this post on ThePhoblographer. It actually slowed me down also. I share a lot of photos through Instagram however when I take my time to edit , I like my images much more.
Sometimes an awesome photography moment can happen in an instant. If you are not ready, you will miss a shot. If you are ready and you do get the shot, the question is, “Do you share it or do you polish it up first?” As technology progresses, it’s becoming much easier to share your images quickly. Sometimes getting your photos out fast is a necessity of work. Other times, it’s just sharing on the web. The thing is, when sharing your images so quickly, are you showing your best work? It’s okay to put images out often, but you have to balance the quick images with the polished.
Here are a few tips how to slow down your workflow to produce better images.
It was a nice January Day in New York, the city of itinerant people. I had gone photo-walk-about for an entire day. While out I decided to get my Week 3 ’52’images done. I wanted the “One Object Challenge” to be epic. In my mind it is. Central park was the back drop. This is something I really wanted to do for this project , at least once. Titus the Grizzly did no know what to expect. He heard “concrete jungle” and came prepared. …
Here we are, week 2. Its been a busy week and mostly very cold. So I really was not thinking about week two too much. Then It happened , I had a moment that stopped me. So I took A moment f\to do some photo-meditation and decompress. This is when I decided to do my “One Aperture Challenge” for the week . I decided to make both images black and white. I was in the mood. …
I recently did a review on the Sigma 24-105 mm f4. I was so intrigued with this lens that I was willing to use a Canon Camera to get my hands on it. I liked this lens so much that it is now on my wish list. I need my replacement for my now destroyed Tamron 28-105 f2.8 and this is it.
For a while now, Sigma has been putting out high quality lenses in an effort to up their game. Our Sigma prime lens guide is filled with drool-worthy lenses. Sigma knows there are people who love zooms and they have produced proper lenses for these them as well. The first thing I said when I got it in my hand was please don’t the Sigma 24-105mm f4Â be a disappointment.
It was not.
It is the season to begin a new year photography project. Instead of doing 365 project, I will be doing two 52 week projects, following two themes. Recently I did a post on ThePhoblographer,Five Photography Challenges For The New Year.I am choosing from two of these. For the first post in this series the images are combined. I chose to do a long exposure as the most recent snow storm began. I knew I would busy afterwards. Lots of things to finish. Anyhoo, in the future there will be an image for each theme.
The first theme will be “The One Object Challenge” I will be using Titus the Grizzly, my space pirate bear, this year.
The Second theme will be “The One Aperture Challenge”I will be shooting at f11. This is going to be a challenge.
Be well, take good photos, keep in touch.
