Story Boarding and Friends To Visit

Sun Jul 24, 2011, 4:03 PM
Hello again, you glorious and lovely people! :)

I've nearly finished story boarding a series of portraits, though I'm currently searching for a suitable model with the right look first. I'm thinking of taking a trip back to the modelling agency (it's been a few years!) but I'm holding off for now as I tidy up some other business I've got going on.

I recently did a shoot with executives from a company that - as usual - I can't publish anywhere, but I can only say that it was a lovely shoot with some genuinely nice people. The shots in particular were very pleasing in a corporate way, and I'd encourage people to try it (it's not a bad way to keep sharp, and a repeat customer's always worth finding).



Two friends of mine recently had their photography gear stolen the day before they were due to shoot a friend's wedding - that's got to be close to a living nightmare!

Please drop over and leave a few words of sympathy if you've been there or can imagine the pain; when it's a person's passion it has to hurt to lose it.

Hello again ! Just thought I'd let you know, I did by a kit of close up lenses on ebay (YAY !) And they arrived today ! So I tried them out on bubbles ! And geez was it hard ! I got so hot staying that long close to my lamp as well ! You didn't warn my about that one haha ! Well it was great fun and I was pleased to get at least one good photo out of it.
Suprisingly I had trouble actually getting any colour at all on the bubbles. I wasn't expecting that problem...
So thanks again for your help ! :D Do check out my photo if you have the time ;-)

Hey! Great to see you're on. :)

I'm doing really well, I've started getting paid for the photography I do as a hobby, I've started turning a recorder on when I write music (even if it is rubbish) and the lovely weather recently has meant lots of barbeques on the beach. Lovely. :D

I feel like the enthusiasm that the tablet has given you will make you a better artist, since it's the will to do your art that means you'll put in the grinding time that improves you a little bit each picture.

I reckon that we improve a little bit, maybe once every twenty images? Maybe more? I mean those times when we finally get how to do that one thing in the image (be it putting hair behind an ear, or getting a fluid pose looking like it should). Maybe it's just grinding through those nineteen other images to get to that one that we need motivation for.

I hope it works out well - I'll be watching. :D

Ah Adam you are such an awsome guy :), thank you so much.

And yeh, i actually did notice what you are telling me now ... i do improve gradually ... and honesly, I actually like that about me ... there is always room to get better :D:D:D

Congrats on making money off the photos !! you deserve it :)

Also, since you are going to the beach alot ... it would be nice if you captured the joy of it all in a photograph while you are at it :P, i had to say that because thats what popped in my head when you said beach.
