I didn’t like the new Alta Pro2+ in person after all the research I did as much as I did on paper. Video is 15 minutes of my thoughts on the two tripods. I’m sure the same things that bug me, you may like and vice-versa but I really look to these videos when I’m looking at getting new gear and wanted to give back. I’ve learned that if I don’t process the video right away it sits in a folder while I forget everything I wanted to share. Hence why you haven’t seen the final review of my photography backpacks!
I purchased some new backgrounds for my product photography clients, to give us some new choices. I have fabric and I like it, so I clicked a sale link for fabric ones, but once I got to the site, I choose patterned backdrops and ended up with vinyl.
I went back to Pearson Falls again but tried not to photograph the same things so I picked small areas and spots I hadn’t paid attention to before. Continue reading
Perspective was the theme for the Camera Club in July.
I had lots and lots of ideas for this theme. I’m sure not all of them were what they had in mind for the theme- but I’ve never really like to play by all the rules. I had one in mind with a swing, one using rose-colored glasses, one that involved pavement, a puddle and another person with cute rainboots on, but I ran out of time. When I think of perspective in photography I tend to think of forced perspective (like the sun in a cup below) or railroad tracks or tall buildings that the lines would merge if you continued them off the photo. So I started thinking outside the box. From a cats perspective. Glass half full or half empty the optimists and pessimists perspective or one door closed, one door open. A scale laid upside down on my feet in the air (so it said 0 bls) but I never painted my toenails. Someone dressed for hot and someone dressed for cold, in the same setting. The lens ball super wide fish eye perspective. From inside a food grater I already had. My main idea was doing more underlook under-cat pics and I really could hardly wait to share those. I just LOVE some of these.
