The Statue of Liberty in Paris, 1886.
The ELPH 300 is fun and all but it’s not really a camera for photographers. It has no manual controls what so ever, which is pretty limiting since that’s more or less all I shoot (and you should too until you at least understand what’s going on). It also doesn’t shoot raw, which makes post processing gross.
Basically I don’t use it for pictures and neither should you lol.
I was doing a photo booth for some kinda fund raising improv event in downtown Manhattan. It was for MS i think, but i mainly remember that it was in the same building that Leonard DiCaprio lives in, which is freakin sweet.
Anyways this girl came up and was telling a friend about her “dream headshot”, having seen me and my lights in the corner. I overheard her conversation and of course told her (because once you know photoshop you lord it over everyone) that I could totally make it happen. She was all OMG NO ITS TOO MUCH WORK but then I started telling her what to do and it happened. Go me or something.
Somehow I fell into the world of private jet photography, which is why I haven’t really vlogged as of late. Thank god rich guys know nothing about photography.
Exploit the tired, especially those who are dumb enough to fall asleep when the light is awesome in a Brooklyn neighborhood filled with camera wielding hipsters
