I made and deleted a Tumblr photo blog within the same night. I had a weak concept to go out and buy an expensive camera. I’m very anti-DSLR especially for filmmaking purposes. Thus be the reason I was looking for a suitable compact camera not only to take pictures for the photo blog but also for making an updated family album. I’m pretty sure I found it by watching review videos after review videos on YouTube.
Concept: Take pictures of volunteers in Columbus to dress them as characters in books how I picture them. Prerequisite is to become a #reader so I was going to start with Philip K. Dick novels. I was going to call this project The Unearthly Manchild Pictures which of course is a reference to Doctor Who. I SWEAR TO THE ALMIGHTY LORDE IF SOMEONE STEALS THAT AMAZING NAME I WILL FIND YOU AND DRINK THE LAST [NAME OF BEVERAGE] YOU HAVE BEEN SAVING ALL DAY WHILE STABBING YOU. My job title in this venture would be lead phuntographer because I’m doing it for fun.
The Unearthly Manchild Pictures
Canon AE-1 Program or Digital Camera
Book Title and Character Names
I was looking for a compact Canon digital camera so I could call both my AE-1 Program film camera and my new digital camera Nick and Mariah Canon. Mariah would be the film camera because she remains beautiful over the years and takes black and white photos (she’s mixed I think I don’t know that much about her) while Nick would be the digital camera because it is flashy and expensive also can’t focus properly. If you have suggestions let me know in a message.
I think I found what I was looking for in Sony RX-100M3. Sidenote: I believe the best place for photo blogs like humansofnewyork and dinerporn is on Tumblr and not Instagram or anywhere else. I remember nothing from my senior year photography class back in high school so I taught myself about depth of field, ISO, and sensor/everything else to make sure I was getting the most of what I was paying for in a camera. I’m still learning until I know how to manually operate a digital camera with ease. I might get it when the price drop as the de facto photographer/videographer/only son in my family it is my job to fix electronics and capture memories. That job I have been working for 21 years now. Until I raise the funds I will continue using the camera on my iPhone 5 because the best camera is the one you have with you that you paid for already as they say.
