all cut up:
I've picked up a new project along with my other new toy. opted for Canon rather than Nikon, which I had to take a lot of heat with my guy friends. I guess Nikon is the golden brand, but Canon just happened to be the better camera for the specification we are looking for. I figured photography would be a good way to develop good eyes for art and I'm working with ppl talking about photography all the time. Willie and I went to the city yesterday and took some cool pictures. Here they are:
I had my back against the sun in the picture on the right and on the left, sun is on the left.
at this stage, we are just experimenting with things. I really like fashion photograph that do a good job with lighting contrasing (shadow and light), but I realized that I needed more equipment. I just started playing with the f stops, ISO, shutter speed and etc. so far, I'm finding aperture priority to be more user friendly. it's kind of cool now that I have some inputs on how the photos should be taken.
today, I'm driving myself crazy with this lab garment. I'm about to swear off the patterns. ok, maybe I will take that back someday, but I'm angry at this point. there's always something wrong with the pattern. I always need this and that adjustment, one adjustment on the burst leads to an adjustment on the sleeve, then you have to change the sleeve back as a result, then you need to change the back because the back sleeve is change. arg!
Now I think I need to take a break. it's getting too difficult. Here's a look at what I have so far. see the pins? I have to change all those seam lines to make things fit. this is taken with the Olympus DSLR, which has problems with white balance. this picture looks blue-ish to me. I would've never noticed it before my new Canon purhcase.
Kenneth King said we need to destroy a few yards of fabrics before we become good at it. I'm still working on the first are.
