As March ends, the madness doesn’t haha, alright enough of that it’s been going on for months. I have been pretty occupied with some of the shoots you see above. Gwen is a lovely model that I got to do a shoot with in the woods; she’s a trooping for dealing with the winds. Needed a shot of myself rocking the Jason Todd hair. Even a day before the art show, made time to do a shoot with eunyeah. Bought stuff I really don’t have enough time for. Then rocked out with Business Boys Never Rest at the Dial. There’s still a lot more to come! Next week will be posted sooooooon. Stay Awesome everyone~!
The Second Son
My take on Jason Todd from the Bat-fam. Took a crack at the Brenizer Method for the first time, also known as the bokeh panorama. 9 images: 3 rows, 3 columns. It was fun and challenging; going to keep practicing that.
(Almost up to date!) March closes with a bang as I prepare to get everything ready for the Art Show. I put that film lens to the test at Dog Agility. Now the zoom is amazing, but keep in mind there’s no auto-focus and dogs move fast…really fast haha. Great lens for under 60, including converter, but not meant for moving subjects. As the weekend came along, I shot and worked like a mad scientist. Combining multiple images together (6+ shots) I wanted to give everything I got for this Art Show as if it was any other shoot or job. There were lots of sleepless nights this week and I have found comfort in skateboarding. lol. haha
As always stay awesome you all!
Every week has been a wild week, or at least I feel like I have been saying it is. Went to Dog Agility classes to explore sports/pet photography. There was an Open Mic Night at the college. Friday I challenged myself to levitate within an hour lol made it with just a few minutes to spare. Afterwards, I took a halt. As I came home from work to an empty house, I found out my grandfather had a stroke. It’s weird, part of me wanted to slow down time, and the other half had to keep thinking forward. Sorry for the odd flower/plant picture; tested out an old film lens and converter on my camera. Monday shot the podcast and tueday I laid on the floor thinking about the first shot I did with my first dslr. Trying to capture that motion blur that looked nice. Getting the settings right and firing, it was like I shot a hadouken hahaha
Everybody stay awesome!
March Madness Continues!
This has been an awesome month by far and I have to do what I can to keep pushing it! Did a shoot with an artist and got to see his work. It is always cool talking to other people about their perspective on art. Expressions and emotions! I worked with the City of Temecula to cover an antique car festival that recorded 50k people in attendance. To end the week, I achieved a spot to my second art show! So I’ll be needing to make work for it. As always, stay awesome!
The March Madness is hereee! Lots of ups and downs. Did an amazing shoot with Dot.Cosplay in the rain. It was fantastic, but cold haha. I went to a breakdancing competition and it was fun to get back in that environment; so much unique styles coming together. Teamed up with local productions here to do what can be a weekly podcast. Got my fingers crossed for that one =D
Sad news is after running 2 miles 2-4 times a week this year, I got shin splints. I’ve ignored them while running, but now it’s gotten pretty painful. Wearing compression socks for the most part, but my running has been put to a halt. I think my fastest 2-miles was 14:36. I want to break that record again, but for now I shall rest. Nothing is going to stop me though, if I cannot run I’ll bike, swim, or crawl if I have to!
No matter what, stay awesome you all!
This was a fantastic week! I had a crazy idea for the first day, I drafted a quick sketch and set up process to get it to how I wanted it to look. It was creative for me, but a bit odd; venturing out of my comfort zone. I’m planning to do more of that. =]
I was a production assistant on set for a short film at Idyllwild, that was pretty awesome helping things go smoothly. It was a blast to meet the director and seeing how people work on a set in the forest. The next big con for me will be Fanime, so I’m doing a “Road to Fanime”. With this I will be running during workouts totaling up to 150 miles by Fanime. Also, after talking to the awesome cosplayers from ALA that I got to work with, I sent out the RWBY print to Mr. Monty Oum. I look forward to this year and the things I will bring to the table!
Day 50|365 (Week 8 Day 1/7)
Some kind of…human?
Been awhile since I did some intense photoshopping. Dat Automail though. Costume patient pants sewn by Cara way back when MGS4 first came out.
Week…Something…6?(update it’s week 7)
I’m going to be honest, I’m not a big fan of Black and White photography (Crazy isn’t it?). Therefore, I wanted to explore it, just like photoshop editing, hdr, and other stuff I have pushed myself to learn. In this case, I find myself funny in the “we’re laughing at you kind of way”. It is not black and white photography, at least to me it no longer is. It is capturing light. That is what photography is! (it’s okay to laugh at me now haha). With this, there has been improvement in understanding light; or at least I think so.
Something cool I learned: Shooting in RAW on a DSLR with the Monochromatic style will still come out as color in Lightroom.
