Well, this is my first post here. I thought it would be appropriate to include an image of my favorite camera. Well, it’s my only camera unless you consider the iphone a “camera”, which I do. In fact, this one was taken with the iphone and the hipstamatic app. Hipstamatic mimics the look of vintage cameras and film. You get some nice looking and surprising images with it.
Which brings me to the reason I like photography in the first place. I’m sure we all have our reasons, but one of my main ones is the fun you can have when you get surprised by a “great” image (quotes denote the very subjective nature of “great” image). My main thing is HDR photography though and it’s what I really like to do. There are some real surprises waiting when you tonemap an image, not all of them good. But with a little practice the good ones start to outnumber the bad ones.
I’m looking forward to molding this blog into something vaguely interesting. I think that may take a while.
PS… Obviously there are some things here that won’t be working right away but I’ll be working on that!
