It’s hard out here for a pimp but all in all it was a good month. I have been getting a lot of love over my various platforms so I want to say thank you for that. This month for me has been like the silence in a horror film right before something jumps out and scares the shit out of you. That being said I’m expecting something to happen in March, might be good, might be bad. I’m hoping it’s good and I can make another leap forward.
I have kept busy going out shooting whenever I can with Andy (@andy_render), traveling to different spots, messing with long exposure, and even met some new people in the process. Nicole came to LA for her Fit & Thick Tour so I got to spend some time with her and her sisters. And of course hung out with two of the best, Michele and Tianna.
I do want to address some stuff.
I am goin to be making some strides soon and finally getting Depict up and running. I’ve been trying to put everything together since I came up with the idea with some college friends in 2010. I still have some of the first shirts I made and now I know I can do better.
Also I get a lot of questions regarding my settings for pictures, and good photographer will know around what settings you shot at, but that’s not really information I feel comfortable releasing. As of now photography is everywhere and you will see a camera every couple feet because everyone has one in their pocket. The way a photographer gets to his/her settings is pure instinct. You can get the same photo at f/16 x 1/125 than you will at f/2.8 x 1/4000 only thing is that perception and depth will vary. I’m not a photography teacher but I did actually study photography and If you want to teach yourself, go for it but their are no cheat codes. My photo teacher always said to treat the camera as an extension of yourself. He said that because he wanted us to be careful with the camera but also because you have to know it like it was your own hand.
Look I’m not making the big bucks and I’m still doing all this shit off of passion, so don’t take my words to heart. Most of you follow me for the women, but I know my shit. So encourage every aspiring photographer to learn about their tool 100%.
