Word Of Wisdom

So I have been asked how I am able to get all of this equipment. The first step is to find a local camera store and become friends with them. Try and ask questions to show your passion and interest in photography. Also show them some of your work, it pays so much more with what you can show and present to others. The next step is if you ever buy any new equipment, make sure you keep the box. I keep all my boxes because if I ever want to trade something in, I can get alot more money for it. I didnt know untill I was trying to trade in my old 5d and I had my box at home but the camera was right on my hip. Sally says next do you have to box, I said not on me but its at home. She says well theres a $300 dollor difference with the box. I still dont really understand why the box is so important but ever since that day. I keep all my boxes. So just a word of wisdom to keep all of your boxes so for future purchases, as an upgrade or an extra lense. KEEP THE BOX!!

New Camera

So I have a new camera, and I went out and took a few shots with my best friend(Ms.Lin). My pictures are coming out very sharp on my camera but when I pull them up on my computer, I do see some graininess. I shot at an ISO of 6400 which is really against the rules of photography. I was so pumped about my camera I couldnt even wait until we got out of the car. I take about 140 pictures or so but in the end only about 70 pictures caught my attention. Most of the pictures here show some of my vision and emotion but still at a bump in trying to convey what I am actually seeing overall. so tell me what you think....NewPics

Taz's Birhtday party

So lastnight was a pretty wild and crazy night! Its Taz's Birthday all four floors open and everyone wanting to be on the fourth floor to celebrate Taz's Birthday. Im being pulled and grabbed every direction either to get them bands or to get a picture. Always, something but I guess it comes with the job ;). Im walking around taking a few pics then Jim Jones shows up as I was leaving the fourth floor. Taz is walking up the stairs im playing around taking a bunch of pictures of him. Then I was like o Sh*t *snap* snap* didnt really get a good shot. So of course I go get Taz to take pics with all his guest and with his celebrity guest. We run around the fourth floor taking pics left and right up and down with anyone and everyone he knew up there. Shots being passed around, champagn being poured into cups glasses, what ever was available. So finaly we go up to Jim Jones table and get the money shot with Taz and him. What a good look, partyed till 430am........ Night all (damn its 6:08am) click Pics to see the GALLERY!!

A Game of Pool!

So im playing a game of pull with a friend of mine at his crib(Tony.) As we are playing im envisioning portraits vigorously. Low, high, B&W, all the above. My eye triggers at least 100 times a day full of different pictures I wish I could capture. The only problem is not all the time can I convey what is seen through my eyes. So I took a few pics nothing to seriouse......

So im leaving the club and I look up at the sky, and its a very vibrant orange color!! I keep driving until I fine a nice spot to pull over and just snap a few shots. My favorite is to just shoot on the go. YOU just never know when your opportunity may come about. You never wanna miss that shot and be like "Damn I wish I had my camera.." This was the only opportunity I had so I took full advantage of it!

Shoot On The Go

So im driving and Im stopped at the light on fourteenth st and look over my shoulder!! Such a beautiful sight at 520pm. I pulled my 5D from my front seat and snapped away. Something simple but the clouds just breaking up and the sun almost gone. A few honks made me keep going but what ever, it was worth it lol!!

The Last Stop

So im dropping my boss off to his car and see an amazing picture! I had to get it, so I dropped him off and made a U-turn. Im on 14th and E st and this hotel is let up with some beautiful lights. I get out for a few minutes adjust my iso to 1600 and my f/ to about 1.8 . The sky is not as dark as usual it has a little color to it because of the rain. Snap snap......
