yoyoing on camera again...

Why did I shoot more than half of it in portrait mode???

Anyway... this the only somewhat usable footage I got. I will reshoot this, though... stay tuned!

So far,

It looks like it's going fast, doesn't it?

I took this one as I was testing a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 a friend lent me.... I probably don't say this nearly as often as I should, but I LOVE MY FRIENDS!

Oh... and here's something I took with a fisheye lens:

It was a great few days... equipment-wise...

Until next time,

oh, nostalgia

Sometimes I think the main reason I take photos is so that I can look through them and go 'Ah!.. that was so long ago. Those were the times!' Looking at old photos always makes me feel like I'm 80.

This was the very first design job did and the first conceptual photograph I took. It was meant to be the cover of our high school's magazine, but, for various reasons, we decided go another way. In retrospect, the cover could have turned out better, but still... a better shot might not be so nostalgic. I read somewhere that scars are great because they remind us that the past is real. I think this principle applies to not so good (it's not really a bad shot, after all) photographs. Is it just me?

Every time look for something in my photo library and I stumble upon this I remember how great it was to work on the articles, have meetings and proofread stuff. Those were the times, indeed.

electoral freebie

Walking around town, I stumbled upon this:

This fella was doing a few very nice covers. I mean... he nailed Guns N' Roses' "Don't cry".... and you need some very good pipes to pull off that one.

The whole concert was part of some guy's campaign... he's running for mayor. Nice of him to give out musical freebies. I'm not sure that makes him qualified for the job, but supporting a young talent does make him a pretty decent guy. I passed by the concert as I was doing a shoot... maybe I'll post some of the shots soon.

Until then,

R over and out.
