~Ask me any questions in the comment section~ Alrighty even though I had 70 or so funny bois tell me to delete my account I'm still gonna do an AMA (yes I know it was a joke I'm joking too people lmao). Hit me up with your questions in the comments of this image and I'll be responding between homework problems. Also yes I realize I already did a farewell to Orion post, but here's another one anyways. I took my lum data from the RC and combined it with my NB color data from my 80mm and did a bunch of color work to get some funky stuff going on. I hope you guys enjoy it!
Here’s a life test - Define Success. For me, success = happiness -> replicating perfect day after perfect day, doing what I enjoy, in places I love, and around people that inspire and challenge me. To get there, it often requires enough residual income to “live comfortably”. If you can do what you love, and create residual income at the same time, Yahtzee 🤙
It may not look it, but I’m living very comfortably in this 📸 by @agrphoto! How do you define success?! #putyourselfoutthere 🤘
One of the things I want to start doing is show how my photos got to their end result. I think we look at Instagram and assume the beautiful images we’re seeing are a result of super expensive gear, perfect conditions, etc. Most photos don't represent real-to-life moments, and that’s absolutely ok.
I shoot with a crop sensor camera, which means less light can be captured in an image (among other things) than in a full frame, making it very difficult to shoot in low light conditions. To illustrate, here is a final edit compared with the original image. It took a lot of work to bring out what you’re seeing (the second photo is the unedited version), and even though there are a number of things I wish I had done better I’m generally happy with it. That’s what it ultimately boils down to: are you happy with the images you’re creating? Do you look at their end result and see a success? An opportunity to do better in the future? Both?
Don’t focus on the gear. Don’t focus too much on how others are shooting. Keep creating. Keep experimenting. That’s as much a reminder to myself as it is to you.
Another successful low-key shot, check out the models and personal trainer page @fayah90 and ask about his weekly training classes. DM me if you are interested in a free photo shoot collaboration 🙌🏾👊🏽🤨
