Nothing at all!
He called a friend, made dinner plans, then carried on with his day.
Enjoy your weekend!
Yesterday was spent out with a friend scouting a few of the locations I discovered last year but didn’t get to properly shoot at the time of year I wanted – the time when bluebells are out.
Last year was a strange one, with the longer winter they arrived a couple of months later than expected. This year, however, they’ve already started to come out.
It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s a step in the right direction.
We can turn it off for Android and iOS devices, but only if they’re using GPRS/3G/4G (ie, not WiFi), which is understandable, but unfortunately it doesn’t help my issue.
So we recently held Lancaster Photographic Society‘s Annual Projected Image Competition, judged by Tillman Kleinhans.
Congratulations to Ruth and Allan for getting colour and mono Image of the Year, respectively.
My images are shown at 8:18, 15:46, 24:20 and 29:14, and linked below the video.
This post might seem a little bit of an odd one for a site like this, but as I often shoot on location (English weather permitting), I also go camping on location if I want to shoot particularly late, or super early in the morning – or if I want to scout out a location and see how it looks at different times of the day and night.
Friday/Saturday was an example of the latter at a location that’s absolutely gorgeous in the summer when the sun’s out and the clouds are few.
Arranging a shoot here, however, is not a simple affair, especially when you have a lot of equipment to carry, as well as food and other supplies. Two of us each had to make two trips between the car and the location to carry everything up.
So, an overnight test was essential to work everything out in advance of actually arranging a shoot.
I’ve had a few people asking me about this, so here’s the short version.
I won’t be getting it. Not interested in the least. It doesn’t do anything I’d need an iPad version of Lightroom to do, and it does a whole bunch of things I don’t need.
The fact that there isn’t an Android version, too, I think is a bit short sighted.
After 5 or 6 months of almost non-stop rain, we’ve finally started to see some breaks in the clouds the last couple of weeks and had one or two days of rather lovely sunshine.
That means it’s time to get out of the studio and back on location!
Throughout the year, even when I’m not actively shooting on location, I’m always looking for new places to photograph clients, models and other subjects. It’s just something I tend to naturally do when I’m out travelling somewhere.
I wasn’t sure of this was supposed to be for Apple or Google when it first came up. Ever notice how they’re all kinda starting to look the same?
Whether it’s a photographer, a programmer or any other type of freelancer, do your research, and make sure you get the right person for the job.
While most of us will never work on projects with such expensive, devastating and controversial implications as those shown in the video below, it demonstrates the point of finding people who know what they’re doing.
Don’t risk just accepting the cheapest bid, and yes, there may be a lot of folks out there who may even offer to do it for free, but if they don’t even value their own abilities, why should you?
Look at work they’ve done in the past, sometimes it may even be possible to get references from previous clients, especially if they use sites like Freelancer.com.
Most reputable freelancers will tell you if they don’t think they can do the job you’re asking of them and will often suggest somebody they know who can as an alternative. They value their reputation too much to risk screwing up a job they know they can’t do.
While the article linked below is aimed at writers, the same holds true for pretty much any freelance creative.
TL;DR – Don’t be a douchebag and believe in yourself.
