Answer: you shoot like a girlHi againAnswer: you shoot like a girl3 years ago in Personal More Like This
and thanks for all the responses to my last journal entry.
First I have to clarify: I think that most people that say that i shoot like a girl, don't mean it in a negative way. They often express it by adding that my pics are so romantic and fragile or something like that.
I just always wondered why ppl think that this might have something to do with me being female. When ppl learn about my job, meaning that I am a mathematician, they seem to be surprised, like that wouldn't be typical female. Although then my photographic work looks typically female to them. I was wondering if that idea came up before or after knowing that I am a girl.
Regarding my models: I think it's true that they feel more relaxed with a girl as a photographer and that it helps with the photos then. But I also think that it is a real benefit for my work as a photographer that i used to model myself (well and sometimes still do), 'cause I usually know exactly what poses and expressions I want and how to ge

Think Carefully About Copyright and Model's RightsI get asked constantly if someone can "base" a painting off of one of my photographs. More often, someone just does it and then demands my permission after the fact ...Think Carefully About Copyright and Model's Rights5 years ago in Personal More Like This
About 35 years ago, I did something similar ...
I found a photograph I really liked and I based a painting on it, changing minor details that clashed with my sense of composition. It was of a woman sitting on a chair, facing away and looking backwards at the camera. I spent a long time on it and really liked it once I was done.
I showed it to a gallery owner along with some more original works and he thought it was the best of them. But he said "That woman looks familiar, who's the model?" and I couldn't tell him. When I admitted that it was from someone else's photograph he essentially said he couldn't work with me.
I eventually found out where the photograph came from. It was a picture of Charlotte Rampling originally published in Playboy. After doing some research on international copyright law, it became obvious tha
The Adventures of Squicken... Week OneMy name is Cameron Michael but all my friends call me "Squicken". It's a mixture of "Squid" (what Mommy calls my Dad) and "Chicken" (what Daddy calls my Mommy). I was born last Tuesday the 18th, and have learned SO MUCH that I asked Dad if I could write about it here in his journal.The Adventures of Squicken... Week One3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dad gave me permission so here goes my first attempt at writing. Don't judge me too harshly because I'm only a week old and I've got my hands full trying to learn stuff. For instance, eyes!!! Wow, eyes are tough to control! It's hard to focus them and move them all around. I can't really see all that well yet but I think I recognize Mom and Dad and I CERTAINLY recognize a fine nipple, which makes Dad proud. Of course, I don't have much experience with other nipples but, I have time to fix that.
I spent a few days in ICU (Mom, Dad, and I called it "jail") at the hospital because Mom ran a fever during birth and the docs said they found some indication of infection in the blood samples they took from me
The Importance of Lens ChoiceI take a lot of my cues from cinema and in particular filmmakers using DSLR for their work. I don't think it's useful for me to tell someone to go out and by this lens or that lens because ultimately what you use will be a matter of the right tools to help achieve the expression that you want to share. Therefore what you choose to shoot with will be different than what I choose to shoot with.The Importance of Lens Choice3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead of going into detail explanations I think the substance of what I'm trying to share can be found in these videos:
stillmotion's guide to lenses for weddings and events
More important than what the lens does is why you are using it again, Stillmotion gives a great explanation here:

Hope this provides some insight for you.

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map
David's Girls2011 Was a very good year for my work, I received a bit of recognition, made some new friends, traveled all over southern California taking pictures and even revived some work in film.David's Girls4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But no one knows better than me I didn't do it alone, these absolutely phenomenal and very talented individuals made it all possible and without them, I would be out there shooting landscapes and cactus. These girls got up early, suffered my company on long drives to remote areas of desert, hiked, climbed rocks and braved cold, wind, rain and heat just to create these images.
All I can say is each of them deserves serious kudos, each of them has my deepest respect, gratitude and love because they are what art is made of. And I'm not the only photographer they work with so you really ought to be watching them! The incredible people I had the privilege and honor of working with in 2011, in order of appearance...

conversation and perspectiveThrough the positive magic of the internet, I recently re-connected with a co-worker from long ago. We worked together on a design project, 25 to 27 years ago; the two of us have little in common in the way of background or culture, but we connected well in our professional lives. It may be 25 years since I've seen this fellow and we had lunch today.conversation and perspective3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Both of us have aged greatly, of course, although neither of us are particularly ancient. He is a few years younger than me. During lunch, he told me of his past three years, dealing with inoperable brain cancer, various treatments and trials. Difficult stuff. Although he couldn't do this at first, of course, he has accepted his condition with remarkable grace, enjoying his time with his family and truly living each day as if it is a gift. My complaints about daily life are quite trivial by comparison, and I hope to use the encounter, try to adopt my old friend's

Edting ShootsI was recently asked about how I go about making selections (the edit) for my shoots. I do two passes for the edit usually the next day or within 72 hours of the shoot. If trade, the team gets 1 week from the posting of the online gallery (now using Zenfolio) to get their selections to me.Edting Shoots3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Working backwards, I make my initial edit using only the flag in Lightroom. I find that working backwards gives me a fresh perspective without having to wait a few days for my emotions from the shoot to clear. It also caters to my thinking as I'm often shooting multiple shots per pose so I find the one that I want faster because I was working the pose.
Viewing on the flagged images, I will rate them according to the following scale:
1*=client gallery (all images that are worth sharing with my clients)
3*=social media/blog worthy
4*=online portfolio worthy
5*rint book worthy
If it's a trade shoot, team (Model and Stylists) get color codes for their selec

New LensesOkay, so I am hoping to get some new Canon lenses... I have the two kit lenses but I want MORE!! I really want the 50mm f1.4. I will probably buy that Friday.. What other lenses would you recommend? Keep in mind that I am on a tight budget. But... my birthday is coming up in August I am photographing a wedding coming up in August as well. I have started shooting people rather than just nature. I just haven't gotten around to making another deviantart for the people photography. (I don't want to mix nature with people). What do you guys recommend?? Also, how do y'all feel about putting film lenses (with adapters) on digital cameras? I have heard from some that it's a cheap alternative that can work nicely if you get a good film lens. I also understand that I would be shooting in manual mode and I have no problem with that. (I would be using these lenses on other shoots that aren't so dependent on timing).New Lenses3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Seriously intense reaction of happiness to this comment.
This is why I stay true to who I am and what I love.
Jeez!I received several complains from all kind of "kiddies" who were very disgusted by the fact that some people [like me] have no respect for themselves and no shame to post photos of their nude bodies... Yes I am very shameless from this point of view mainly because I don't see why not since I do enjoy working with a lot of photographers who do works of art. Everybody has two pair of boobs, an ass, genitals... It's nothing special so what's all the fuss about?Jeez!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am not going to be my own judge about my photos, but I am pretty sure I have seen a lot of amateur photos that are really really disturbing. I understand bondage, domination, but what I saw around here it's pretty DAAAAMN... So please cut me some slack... and no, I will not do a feature with disturbing photos I have seen around here!
Just for the record, DeviantArt has a mature filter that should be used. I noticed that only girls complain about me showing up nude and they are mostly Naruto fans or draw all day ponies in pai
