I find myself doing things that I don’t normally do in order to improve myself. I’ve been spending a good amount of time with my two friends. This shot was taken in a field in one of my friend’s neighborhood. I’m drawn to machines and steel. I like to take shots like these especially when there are wires and the weather is perfect. This shot has a dark feeling to it like it’s showcasing an upcoming storm.
Wanted to capture some of the birds that were hanging out but I did manage to capture one in flight and a few on the top. Now that I’ve studied this shot a bit more, it happens to remind me of Hitchcock’s Birds. It’s a film that I enjoyed especially since I watched it with my grandma who first watched it when she was a little girl.
I’m exploring my options and taking time to truly think.
Words are nice but action is better,
A simple shot I took while leaving work one day. I really love the rain and have yet to capture a shot that I truly enjoy. This one is close but I have a lot of work to do. Thinking about trying out another lense.
Going to San Fran tomorrow, I’m excited! There will be a lot of opportunities to take some great shots. Hoping that we don’t run into too much traffic while there. Working on getting a better education in the things that I am passionate about. Stay tuned for that and much more.
Experimented with nature and the color blue one decent day as I walked. The blue could pop more, which is something I will work on when I boot up Lightroom the next time.
Doing my best to stay calm in stressful situations. I actually got a lot done and hope to be able to do more tomorrow. Hanging out with a co-worker/friend for a while outside of work was pretty cool. I’m able to be myself without restraining myself due to being in the workplace. Working hard to become better and do better. Chasing the best version of myself slowly.
Was able to start riding my motorcycle with confidence. Will continue to develop a better mindset that will enable me to stay cool, calm, and collected.
Another older shot of mine with a Sony Cybershot. I didn’t edit this one either but I plan to as practice.
I am still learning how to edit raw photos in Lightroom and Photoshop. I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a decent photo editor. For now, I’m watching videos on the topic and photography in general. I’m focused on becoming a photographer but I’m open to explore wherever I go on this path of mine.
Peace for now,
A simple shot based on my influences in cinema. It’s an older shot but shows how I experiment with light and shadows. Took this with a Sony Cybershot.
Back after a long time away. Won’t be taking that long of a break again. Been working and adjusting to going to college as well. It’s a challenge I’m doing my best to juggle. It’s been one week so far and I handled it alright.
I have until the 7th to decide if I need to get rid of some things in order to be a better version of myself. Recently, bought Photoshop and Lightroom so I’ll be able to explore editing more. I have a bunch of faw files waiting for me to play with them on my desktop. I’m looking forward to doing so tomorrow afternoon. I’m commiting myself to my path and eliminating options to focus while also remaining open enough to allow myself to progress naturally through life.
That’s it for now. Peace!
Exploring while looking up. I took this with my Cybershot I believe, however, would like to take a new shot of a similar subect with my Nikon D3300. I think I made it too dark which is rare for me to say. Anyway, it’s an older picture and I can see very thing I can do to make this shot better next time. Surely but slowly I’ll improve till the day I die.
Working in retail gives me a lot of time to observe human behavior. A lot of what I’ve seen is negative as if people don’t know how to be respectful to others, products, or the employees of the store. I find so many half eaten things in random places like half eaten donuts in the freezer, half drank Gatorade behind cottage cheese, etc. Besides that, I simply think all day about what I need to do and what I truly want.
I do my best to muster energy to get things done but after this week I’ll be able to do a bit more. I’ll be working less and hopefully will be able to lose some more weight.
Not bad, but I will have to go back and edit it some more to make the subject a bit brighter. Caught this while walking one day and took several shots of this shot before it disappeared. It’s normal for me to take shots like this daily. I take shots of random subjects and willing to fail in doing so. I treat it as a learning process and will continue to do so to improve.
I’ve been working hard and saving up money. I’m debating on buying Photoshop and/or Lightroom from Adobe. I will have to do research as I do need an editing software that can handle RAW photos. I have a good amount of photos that I need to edit so I will need to decide. My problem is I don’t want to make monthly payments on anything right now. The downside is that my photos will sit on my desktop just begging to be edited and uploaded. Will take some more time to consider my options.
Besides that, I am trying to improve my life by improving myself. Still looking for another job and hopefully one in photography or at least one with videography. Will keep my head up and enjoy the now.
Took a short break, but I’m back on schedule to do daily posts again. Since the last time, I posted anything I’ve upgraded to a Nikon D3300. It’s my first DSLR and I bought it entirely with my hard earned cash. It truly felt great to do so, I took it on a 6-mile walk and captured about 700 photos. I’m still adjusting to it and learning about it. Will need to find the manual online soon. Was able to publish my first post for Unotaku.net and the second one will be published soon.
I truly learned how to work on a deadline to be considered an active writer for the website. Besides that, I’ve been doing my best to pursue photography/filmmaking full-time and will be applying to jobs related to both fields. It should be easy to apply just have to update my resume and press send. I’m fully committed to this journey and willing to invest in it. If I fail so be it, I can always pick myself up and try again.
That’s it for now but stay tuned for more tomorrow.
P.S. I still have to finish designing this website.
