Interests
Worked as an Intern at a photographic studio and wow was it amazing for the experience and being spoilt rotten with learning their ways of life.

The work in the time was quick and with loads of trial and error based work with the lighting equipment - but it always genuinely started with intentions of portraying the photographic subject perfectly in such a way that the light was controlled to show all the edges clearly.

The lighting apparatus consisted of a tripod onto which the light would be mounted -- then an umbrella could be fitted to bounce the light back as soon as it was released and direction was given to the light to help the objects in focus

We did use more natural lighting with the models, but for stills of objects that were non-living, a polyboard or a few were used to help either refract the light with a white layer, or diffuse it with the black side facing the object. Many times, lights were placed in accordance to where the photographer saw it working out, 

The camera lights themselves were pretty awesome, they were light computers, basically put, with a fan running to keep them cool, as well as inputs inside the lights as to how fast the surrounding lights would react to the first one going off - the master -- and the slaves were what also flashed after the master initiates from the Photographers camera. 

Everything was highly educational -which inspired the use of photography for things other than studio work -- 

The use of textures for artists alike -- for example, for capturing the living,breathing world that is outside the studio in which a regulated good stroke of photography is balanced, maintained and upkept by standards that are far beyond my own currently.

The love that co-workers share in such a small business makes things tight :) 

Best experience of my life so far with an Internship 

Big Thanks and much love  to Vanessa Letch, Adam Letch, Cara, Frank, Bryan, Darren and Chloe <3

Dear Recipient,


It has come to my attention that you have been viciously trying to murder my favorite button. The assassination failed and the button survived for others to use it still.


Thank you for trying anyway, the annoying little button had it coming! And you have faved some of my photos by doing so! That's even more awesome! Proceed to trying to smash my +Watch button to pieces if you want to receive more Fursuit/Animal photography! I try to upload regularly!


Thank you again for being all awesome and amazing and faving my stuff and such! 


Sincerely,

-Reinout
