Anonymous asked: Do you have any advice for learning photo editing? Also, could you suggest any books on the topic or possibly blogs? I appreciate any suggestions or advice that you could give, thank you.
Not really, I just experimented, trial & error-ed, and youtube-d my way into figuring out photoshop.
Like I said in an earlier anon ask, I’m the worst to ask about technical things… :)
Anonymous asked: Your work is so amazing and inspiring! I was wondering of you could help me out as I love taking my photos myself and have been saving up for a while but need some ideas on why camera to purchase? Are there any you could recommend? Thank you, and again, your work is amazing!!!
Wow, thanks so much!
I’m not the most technical of photographers so I’m probably not the best person to ask BUT, things I would say are:
The glass (lens) is really important, more important than the body a lot of times. If you have good glass on a decent body your photos will look really nice. If you have a good body and a crappy lens, photos won’t look so good.
Get used or refurbished. They work just as good as new and it saves you money.
Research what type of lens will suit the purposes of your photo style. Like if you’re taking portraits or landscapes etc.
Hope that helps!
Anonymous asked: Hi :) is everyone in your crying images legitimately crying? if so, what did you do to upset them? :(
Yes they are.
& I didn’t make any of them cry, they were crying of their own volition, I just documented the moment.
