Only got a couple due to England's notorious weather taking a turn for the worse, but I'll be going round tomorrow so I'm gonna get some more, I'm still practicing at the moment, but his garden is the perfect place for photos.

Try to think more minimalistic and to get a clean background. :) That plant is great, but the crowded background is smothering it.

be kind by charles bukowski


we are always asked
to understand the other person's
viewpoint
no matter how
out-dated
foolish or
obnoxious.

one is asked
to view
their total error
their life-waste
with
kindliness,
especially if they are
aged.

but age is the total of
our doing.

they have aged
badly
because they have
lived
out of focus,
they have refused to
see.

not their fault?
whose fault?
mine?

i am asked to hide
my viewpoint
from them
for fear of their
fear.

age is no crime
but the shame
of a deliberately
wasted
life
among so many
deliberately
wasted
lives
is.

How many MP does you camera have?

Ahh only 7.2 i was going to get a 10MP camera but my mum said she'd have to fork out a shitload to get one with a decent zoom, but the one i got is awesome, i love it.

It just looks quite grainy. Well, in the dark pictures.

What model?

Yeah, it's because i've resized them. They still have some slight grainy-ness to them at full size, But that's what is expected when you don't have the cameras the press usually turn up with lol

Here's an original sized one, as you can see it's alot clearer than the one i've resized.

^ that one i changed the colour on purpose, it's actually quite vibrant but i preferred a more epic look so that colour makes it look more epic than the original.

Despite the grainy look, i'm really proud of them..better than shitty mobile phone pictures i use to have to take haha.

i really like your pictures, liam. they suit the style of the music deftones create. i love the one of stef. it really captures his essence. nikons rock. the d70 is amazing...if you ever want to upgrade and kick the press photographers arses that is, and i highly recommend that you do!

this is my friend jess. i liked these photos, they make me slightly happy. i like doing portraiture.







i'm sorry, i have a really crappy scanner. it's the best i could do.

Thanks alot Mazzy, Means alot  :)  :-*

I really like your shots, especially this one...



It's a really calm looking picture, makes me want to be sat where she is finding out what she's looking at.

I'm really falling in love with photography, especially for gigs and i'm really proud of those shots i did.

And thanks a shitload for the camera reccommendation i'm going to look that up now..

*wees with excitement*

Edit:

I've just checked it out and it says its 6.2MPs..

Since i'm still new to the whole photography world, will that mean if i bought it and took it to another Deftones show, My next lot of shots will come out grainy again?? cause my camera is 7.2 but less exspensive than the d70  :-[ *noob*

there's this guy that has this review page and i really trust his opinion:
http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d70.htm

i view the d70 and d40 in the same way and you know, it's all about lenses most of the time. if you have a great lens then you're set to go. you can try a d200. i'm saving up for a d200. if i succumb to a d70 then so be it. i'll be happy with it because i've heard nothing but praises about it. i prefer film camera's over digital. i'll be shooting with film for a while still. maybe next year i'll buy a digital. i should have a bit of money saved away or i can always put it on loan.

there's this rock photographer in sydney called nic bezzina. i met him at the team sleep gig because he was photographing there. most gig photographers these days are loaded with lenses and a swish digital slr. nic on the other hand only uses one camera (a film camera) and one lens. a fully manual nikon FE2 and an 85mm lens.

this is from an interview:
Is there a memorable image that you have taken that has become your favourite?

Chino Moreno, on his tour with Team Sleep, climbed the barricade and sung into the face of many smiling fans. The show was at the Roundhouse and I was lucky enough to have been on the second level, waiting, camera poised.

I WAS AT THAT FUCKING GIG!!

here's his website:
http://www.nicbezzina.com/

there's amazing gig photo's there. he is going to be at the follow's gig in may, which i'm going to. i think he's shooting there. i'm not too sure. i really admire him.

Yeah i thought so, Cause my first pic of Chino in blue, Is zoomed in and it looks amazing, I was soo chuffed with that, Cause it's like i'm higher up and right near him on stage.

Same case with the others.

He's got some really good photos on his site, Even his gig photos are grainy, Same with Ross Halfin... so i'm no longer fretting over that, Paint Your Lips made me panic :D

Aslong as it's a decent shot you tend not to look at the quality.

I am really happy with my camera though, It'll do for starters, I'm going to start saving up soon though and that d70 looks great!

Took some more photos today of the rapeseed fields, the yellow-ness is amazing!

I'll post them later, I'm too stuffed from all the chinese food!
