These were the shots I took for Curran's interview with Under Pressure in the Uniter. They could have turned out better but for sponataneous shots these weren't bad.
If your computer is lighter then mine you might be able to tell this is Dan and Joe.
this is the one that was used for the uniter. If this had been planned a little better we could have made for some better shots. These shots are still okay but I will have to practice posed shots so I can improve my bullshit photography.
The reason I suck at photography... legitimately has only a little bit to do with myself. I don't actually feel that I suck. It's more that my photography doesn't live up to my expectations of my vision of what I actually took a photo of. Here are the reasons I have found that really affect my ability to do what I want to do:
#1) MY CAMERA DOESN'T ALLOW ME CONTROL OVER FOCUS... I lay my finger down on the damn button and it tries to focus itself and guess what I'd like to be taking a picture of. .. Now normally it focuses on what's moving, which is usually what I'm taking a picture of, but sometimes it just doesn't focus at all for no reason really. No reason! Well the reason is I'm doing photography that requires better equipement then this ridiculous expensivish digi camera I have. It's bullshit. I'm thinking of finding a place to trade it in for a discount on something I actually want.
#2) AFTER A PHOTO IS TAKEN, MY CAMERA SITS AND THINKS FOR A BIT ABOUT WHAT JUST HAPPENED... this makes it impossible to capture any moment properly. I acknowledge that this happens with all digi cameras, but along with the focus issue, it makes me livid with anger.
These problems are being worked on as we speak.. I will find a way to make my photo taking life better. Make no mistake, this will be fixed.
I will have Under Pressures last pictures sometime in the nearish future.. it's just alot to think about right now.
