Just linked all my stuff to all my other stuff, so now I’m shouting into multiple voids.

Great!

In Love

"You can’t photograph if you’re not in love."
- W. Eugene Smith

I don’t know about this, but I have noticed that my portraiture gets a lot better when I have a crush on the person I’m shooting.

Photographing an Egg

I may actually try this out!

Beginning to Become a Photograper

Huh, I thought photography would just be… easier. Instead, it turns out my eye can’t be satisfied, and thousands of shots turn into one or two that turned out to meet my expectations… In the last 14,822 photographs, only one was good. Not great, not amazing - just good.

The worst thing is that it doesn’t matter what I produce, everyone acts like each one is amazing. That doesn’t work for me - obviously they aren’t all amazing. How could they be?

In my head, photography would be a simple act of seeing, and suddenly art would appear in my hands - as though a camera were some kind of magical box that produces inspired art from everything. Instead, each camera I use has limitations that can only be overcome with more money, and more time, and the more money I spend, the harder and harder it is to make my vision and my product meet each other.

I think I was ruined by camera phones, and apps that provide instant “art”. I never got why photographers disparage the use of iPhone apps in photojournalism and art photography but I think I’m beginning to understand, even if I don’t agree. Because of Hipstamatic and Instagram, I thought photography was something that just happened by virtue of pointing a camera at something and having what you want without thought or foresight created instantly before you.

And I was wrong. It doesn’t make me any less appreciative of those apps, especially because without them, I wouldn’t have started shooting in the first place, and would have never gotten newer and better cameras. But because of them, my expectations were set very high, and I find myself discouraged and frustrated very easily.

I find myself seeing… everything differently now. I see light everywhere, for starters. I look people on the face, even when I’m not out shooting. I notice my surroundings constantly, and very, very occasionally, I notice I’m seeing things in black and white. Or as a long exposure. Or with a rectangular frame around it.

And that’s a little weird. And frustrating in a different way - not frustration that I’m seeing the world differently, but frustrating that I don’t happen to have a camera around my neck at the time.

Ugh, there were a few shots today that would have been amazing, that I was either not fast enough to capture, or just needed more courage to really invade people’s bubbles to get.

I think I have an ethical problem with street photography from a close distance - maybe wrapped up with my own insecurities or issues. I know I wouldn’t want someone to get in my space and shoot me.

Street Photographer

You know, being a photographer is basically like being a professional creep. I try to seem less …creepy… by wearing the coolest clothes I have, and making sure my balding scalp is covered up.

Sadly, balding men are automatically delegated to “creepy”. Sucks, especially because everyone in DC is already on alert to “terrorists” or “spies” or who knows what.

Nope, this isn’t a prank or dare! 

Researchers have crafted a fabric-like gadget called Power Felt that can create an electric charge based on heat, and more specifically, body heat.

Power Felt + your phone isn’t just about the ability to sit on your phone for extra juice to snap more phone pics. It’s got the potential to be a lifesaving device that’ll power your phone in an emergency situation where an outlet won’t be around.
