Picture by: Michael Sun
anyway, VFS is taking a break so i can actaully take some time to write an actual blog post.
some update on my status, been working pretty hard at school, homeworks, and also demoreel stuff. also, i’m working on a movie at the same time, the movie’s called “Fire From Below”
also, if you’ve been reading my blog you know i’ve been doing a lot of photography. i love photography, a really big hobbie of mine. just thought i’d like to mention some of the podcasts i listen to regarding photography.
first off; This Week in Photography: http://twipphoto.com/
i really like This Week in Photography (TWiP for short), first of all because it’s done by some of the member from the TWiT network, like Scott Bourne and Alex Lindsay, so you know the podcast will be highly entertaining and full of ratholes, but also jam packed with photography tips and tricks, news and insights. also make sure you bookmark and TWiP blog, because it’s almost updated daily with tips and tricks on photography, mostly from Scott Bourne (you can tell who has the most free time XD). also i think TWiP is like the number 1 photography podcast i think, but anyway, if you are interested in photography, this is a must listen.
next up: Pro Photoshow:http://www.prophotoshow.net/blog/
like the name, this podcast is aimed at professional photographers, mostly focuses on wedding and portrait photographers. don’t be like “i’m a nature photographer, i don’t care about wedding or portraits.” i beg to differ, i personally think while it’s good to have a focus like nature or wildlife or whatever it is that you really like to photograph, but everyone should take some time to explore other areas of photography, you never know when you gonna pick up some useful tips to use on areas which you thought was never related. just suck in as much photography info as possible. also, Gavin Seim, the dude resposible for pro photoshow is a great guy, search for him on facebook and friend him XD.
more, Jeff Curto’s Camera Position: http://www.cameraposition.com/
this particular podcast i find is really great. it’s not really a podcasts on photoraphy tips and trips per say, but Jeff does talk about how to take better pictures, mainly he talks about the why you take pictures this way, instead of how. this podcast is great, give you things to really think about when you take pictures, i think it’s maybe more for serious amature photographers, very nice podcast, make sure you give it a listen. also from the same dude who brings us camera position, History of Photography, also a great podcast.
last and definitely not least, actually one of the best podcasts out there: Tips From the Top Floor (tfttf)
this is an awesome podcast, i really like this podcast because it’s not only just a podcast, it’s also a community and if you listen to Leo Laport, or the TWiT network you will surely know that Chris (the dude who brings you tfttf) is on Leo’s radio show and there’s assignments, reviews, workshops and stuff like that. also there’s lots of useful info on the tfttf’s website. also make sure you follow chris on twitter: http://twitter.com/chrismarquardt.
anyway so that’s the podcasts i listen to regarding photography, and of course keep your eyes on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/
