They (almost) all look like models this season. Looks like the new 90210
10 Key Factors To a Good Photograph
1) Interesting subject.
2) Nice setting or background.
3) Good lighting.
4) Careful composition.
5) Expert exposure.
6) Careful focus.
7) Correct lens choice.
8) Correct f-stop shutter speed combo.

10) Creative post-processing.
Print this out and stuff it in your camera bag. See, it’s not really that hard to make a good picture.
P.S. I took the shot on the left with my G10 and the shot on the right with my 5D Mark II. Remember, cameras don’t take pictures……original post
Franklyn Espinal aka Espinal™ is a NYC artist that I discovered about 2 years ago. Again, I love his photostream but I chose this particular picture for a personal reason. I've been wanting to take a "mascara running" picture for years now and I've asked almost every model I worked with. But I want to take it even further and really explore the ugly/beautiful aspect of emotion. Can never seem to get it together, but I won't stop trying.( see more...Collapse )

This one is by another one of my favorite photogs on Flickr and I know her only by the name Violator 3. I think her real name is Mara and she's from Italy.
You can see some of her more popular pics in this set here but the reason I chose this picture to represent her is because happens to to have two very similar tattoos to myself. I have a bass clef on my left shoulder and a phoenix across my back.
Not only is she a great photographer but she's also one of the growing breed of women on Flickr who take some fantastic self portraits. One of these days I want to make a post about my favorites out of that group but Violator3 is way more than that so she gets her own entry.
Check her out and if you have a Flickr account add her as a contact so that you don't miss a thing.
I barely post here so I think once in a while I'll just post a cool picture that I find on Flickr. The caption on this is killer too:
I am having a badass day and I want you to know it.
Everything good is happening to me.
Everyone loves me.
And I love them.
And this is proof.
That "Emotional" photos don't always have to be "sad" photos.
Take that bad days, bring on the good!
