Project 365 – Day 39: I tried hookah for the first time

February 8 2013

I went to a hookah lounge for the first time with a couple of friends. It was actually for an assignment on newspaper, and I tagged along to let my friend use my camera. I ended up taking a lot of shots for myself, though. Man, talk about low light photography. Anyways, this just looked kinda cool.

I really like using my 50mm at f/1.4 I should use it more often, I think.


Project 365 – Days 36 and 37: High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography!

In class yesterday we learned about HDR photography, and I was excited. I know a lot of people, especially the ones I’ve met through photo classes, think HDR is overdone/terrible. I like the overprocessed look of HDR photography, though. I’m not sure why, but I was drawn to it when first shown some examples last semester.

`This photo I shot outside of campus, and it has a funny story behind it. I was standing out by some cars in the parking lot to get far enough away to get a good composition with my 50mm f/1.4 and a golf cart rode up to me. A Los Rios officer was asking me what I was doing out in the parking lot (what does he think I was doing standing next to a tripod pointing at a brick wall?) and telling me, repeatedly, that I was on camera and everything I was doing was on camera. I replied by telling him I was in a photography class at the time and I was working on an assignment, but that I was glad there were patrols on the campus on the lookout for suspicious people. He replied by telling me “no, we just have a lot of cameras.” Right!

This second photo is the tree in my yard, again! I thought it would be a great subject for another HDR photo.

Project 365 – Day 15: My Canon camera and lenses

January 15, 2013

I’ve shown my photo printer, so why not show my camera? So here’s another picture from my cell phone (a HTC Evo V)!

A few months ago I bought myself a Canon EOS 60D to replace my T3 (which I got back in April). As you can see, I’ve got it with a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens and a Polaroid vertical battery grip attached. I’ve also got my two kit lenses that came with my T3: An 18-55mm zoom lens and a 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens.

Sorry for the more technical post, but I thought it would be interesting for you all to see what I take most of my pictures with.
