When You Think You Have the Shot… Shoot Some More!


Petesteph1's Blog

There is a lot to be said for learning photography in the digital age and one of the great advantages is that it costs nothing to take a bunch of extra shots.

In the days of film you would have been restricted in your output based upon your budget.

Film and processing costs quite literally forced photographers to get good fast, go broke or give up.

These days its a different story. Shooting a multitude of extra shots may very well get you the shot exactly how you want it but doing it mindlessly will teach you nothing.

So by all means take advantage of the freedom offered by digital photography but at the same time note what you are doing and note the different outcomes you are achieving as you do them to improve your skills.

Must love be above my paying grade of class issued grit I wonder where ever my ruin cant help it/ circulated distribution of wrath/ adding up the consequences wasnt my day for the math, a victim of the mud/ down on my knees from falling in love again with same stranger my friends flew red flags above my moping head to warn but getting kicked while down keeps you staring down watching the blood drip onto the concrete pad outside, dressed in mad plaid/ down I stare down a winding road stair case/ bad taste I smell of worse suspicion when you yell

ACL 2014: The Year’s Best Album Covers


This is an amazing read

a closer listen

Album covers are a funny thing. Some take months of planning and fine tuning while others spring up in the spur of the moment with no editing required. This year’s crop of covers features this spectrum of approaches, but, as will be seen below, many are done by the musicians or with a small, focused team. And three of the top five covers utilize the music’s location for inspiration.

Theme
Dennis Huddleston: When I’m designing artwork, I rarely have an explicit image in mind and I prefer to let the design progress naturally, organically, from start to end. It’s the same with my music really; I never sit down and say “I’m going to use these exact chords/notes!” or anything like that. It’s spontaneous and without any real goal. It’s the pleasure of creating something from nothing, without any predefined rules or expectations, which usually results…
