Put new batteries in your flash, duh.
…this is what it looks like…
This is what it looks like when your equipment can’t quite keep up…
I don’t know, it seems to have learned how to play dead.
The design and build of the blog is about to change. Though I announced it weeks ago, it’s actually getting close now. So I’m going to clear out my idea file in preparation for the new venue. These are the things I had planned to write about.
I think I’m only now realizing how much the negative stereotypes of photographers in movies and television have affected my job. When has the general public seen a group of photographers on television NOT charging and surrounding a helpless citizen? In so many situations just carrying a professional camera turns us into objects of suspicion and paranoia. It’s TV’s fault.
Portfolio reviews are worthless and make you a loser. Wait, that one is worth its own post, so never mind.
A post formed in my mind talking about multimedia, using songs from the release “New Wave” by the punk band Against Me! That one is worth its own post.
How do you balance the creative lifestyle when you’re told to take two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch break every shift? Well, this is a company blog, so why go there?
I was driving along, thinking of simplifying my personal photography by getting a 1DS mk 3 with just one lens. Maybe a 35mm/1.4. And shooting everything with just one lens, so that one camera and one focal length would become so natural to my vision. Like back in the 90s when I shot all the time with my Leica and got to where I could focus precisely without looking through the viewfinder and compose frames accurately from the hip. As I’m having these thoughts, a chef (Mark Bittman) is being interviewed about his new book of vegetarian recipes. He tells of a chef who only did super vegan recipes. He asked her why she limited herself to such strict recipes even though she herself enjoyed eating meat. Her answer defined why I wanted just one camera with one lens: “It’s like pen and ink. You limit things so that you can explore the universe of them more thoroughly.”
