I was on someone else’s set yesterday helping out as prop master and as script supervisor and there was a bit of downtime wherein I took a bunch of pictures with my phone. Taking photos is one of my favourite things ever. I use my cell phone most often just because that’s something I pretty much always have on me, but I do have a Nikon D90 with which I’ve taken some incredible pictures (I’m a pro-mateur…I want more control over the images, but I do it for fun. I’m not a big fan of the flash or of posed photos as far as what I take. Here is a favourite set of my stuff on my Flickr page.)
I don’t really like sending my photos out into the world without some kind of processing on them because a lot of colour and contrast tends to be lost. I tend to settle for over-processed on cell phone pictures just because cell phone cameras are intended to be easy, darn it. Is that why Instagram is so popular (besides the sharing thing, which is why I have Tumblr)? No one wants to spend a lot of time processing their pictures to look different?
When it comes to my films, I don’t grade them unless absolutely necessary. I like bold, real colours just bordering on Technicolour.
What do y’all like to see?
