Terry Richardson knows this. He appears at a shoot with a Yashica T4 LOL yea and people would laugh but then he produces this:
I think it’s especially hard as a young photographer to really let that sink in. It’s so easy to let your ambition speak through what kind of equipment you have. When I started out I started with the Canon xti and I would always dream about getting a better camera. Now I shoot with a D700 and I dream about lighting equipment and lenses. So when I see photos taken by Terry with the Yashica T4 I’m reminded and challenged once again to try to pump out photos that pushes me and not let the equipment limit me because a lot of the times it’s psychological. I’m almost tempted to go and buy a film point and shoot camera :D
I’ve been doing a lot of research these days into other photographers…trying to learn as much as I can and I’ll admit I’m having a blast! I love photography!!!!
so Terry Richardson…you have a new fan. I love his raw and gritty style, it really speaks to me and there’s something so honest about it.
I took these shots while walking back home from buying some bread. For some reason I was craving bread…maybe cause koreans eat rice even at breakfast lol
The post on these photos are completely different from what I usually do for weddings. Just thought I’d try something different :p
what do you think?
so…i’ve been meaning to go rock climbing for the longest time! My brother used to do it when we lived in pakistan (which i now realize is a crazy place to go rock climbing) and my friends kept asking me to go. However, I have a fear of heights and though I really wanted to try it I let my fear stop me. Well I finally bit the bullet and did it and i’m so glad I did because i had SO much fun. Initially it didn’t grab me but once I attempted a more difficult climb i understood why this sport is so addictive. It’s for the reach. When you make that reach and you get a firm grip and you pull yourself up it’s the most satisfying thing and you just want more and more. Now i’m wondering how i can combine the two things, photography + rock climbing. Anyways, it’s great fun and it’s a great workout. If you’ve never climbed before go do it now! lol
So after my first climb i came home and was watching a bunch of videos and I stumbled onto a video of Erik Weihenayer a blind climber. It’s quite incredible! Anyways I just read something he said and thought it is SO TRUE!..
“People get trapped into thinking about just one way of doing things.”
This applies to so many things in life. We think there is a “normal” way of things and try to follow it but just end up feeling dissatisfied with life and trapped. What I noticed about succesful and thus famous people is that they all did things in their own way. So people! don’t trap yourself. Don’t get in your own way :)
(the picture below is a picture of a random girl climbing but she looks pretty cool and hard core kekeke)
