I finally have a touchscreen phone (Verizon iPhone 4 — I like a phone to also be a PHONE, silly me), and have the super-cool app, Instagram. It takes retro-looking photos, but digitally.
Here’s a few I had fun with.
Check out the app in the app store, or at http://Instagr.am
BTW, like most folks, a super-busy life led to ending the 365…heck, I had a STROKE in the middle of it. So I will just post cool pix when I can!
Had a stroke, now I’m back at it.
I was wondering what would happen if I marched hand over hand WHILE the scanner was scanning. Here’s the result. Interesting if anything, may investigate it again when I replace my real scanner….
You may notice the days aren’t sequential. I don’t feel like filling up a year with phots of me busy at my desk, not in a creative mode, so these are only days when I actually took something. I will either stop in a calendar year or after 365 days of actually shooting. 🙂
I suddenly got pulled up for a panel on what the gaming industry wants from educators/students. The panel went on for a while, then I saw this.
Secret speaker info! Also changed at 1 minute, told us to wrap up.
Shoot with Austin guitarist and Cover Girl (and like three other bands) member, Kristen Hall. She was super nice and a great subject!
Posting on the 4th, because I was in San Antonio on the 3rd.
Just some snapshots. Some of the family met some of the rest of the family. And all of us met margaritas and/or beer.
Okay, today I read about pinhole cameras, and considered buying a Lensbaby kit for one.
Then I thought, I have a Lensbaby, cardboard, and tape…..
Does it work like a pinhole camera? Well, it does all right… might actually get something that easily attaches later, but…..
It was fun anyway…
After reading how Tasra Dawson was inspired to improve her photography by Scott Bourne’s challenge, I decided to do it myself.
Starting on April 1st.
Since any post on April 1st would not be taken seriously, I have saved the images I took yesterday for today.
What’s the challenge?
Scott Bourne’s Challenge
The result: improve my photography 300%.
• Take at least 1 photo every day.
• Read at least 1 page in my camera manual every day.
• View other professional images every day.
My manuals are packed right now, so I read up on Cartier-Bresson yesterday a bit. At least it was something.
Here are the images from day one.
Haven’t posted for awhile. Always feel too busy, but I’ve decided to start shooting — and posting — more regularly.
However, I have to play some catch-up.
This is from a headshot shoot I did for an actress moving to L.A.
It’s not my typical monochrome or low-saturation work, but unless you are doing something specific, you need a general headshot.
Jen on Green
Quite a few shoots to catch up on… then we’ll get back to your regularly scheduled programming.
I’ve gotten out of the habit of just shooting…. but getting a Canon G10 has gotten me inspired to just play. I don’t have to get stellar images all the time, but just “moodle” (moodling is creative play without goals or deadlines, allowing you to just explore freely — kids are permanently in that mode).
So here’s a couple of shots. Not stellar, but fun. But I am PLAYing.
I heartily recommend it.
For some reason, my Slideshow Pro gallery wouldn’t work, so I tried another one.
Hope you enjoy the images!
