I usually resize my photos down to 1440x956 (Wallpaper size for my Mac) right after I edit them, and I save it in another folder so I don’t lose the original. Once I finish editing everything, I just use Picasa to lower it to a smaller size so it’s faster when I upload on Facebook. It usually has the width of 1024. So, yeah, I pretty much have 3 copies of every photo, but I usually delete the resize that I get from Picasa right after I upload it on Facebook so I don’t use up too much space. As for Tumblr, I just upload the 1440x956 size. :)
My dad’s old Yashica Super FX-3 2000. (I still can’t get over the name) Hahaha! As for the film, it’s the 135 film. I still have a lot to learn though!
Thank you so much! You just made my day! Haha! The way I started was pretty much the most simple way to start. I just kept taking photos. If I didn’t understand why I was getting bad photos, I’d just look it up on the internet and see what I did wrong. I basically made the internet my teacher! You can seriously learn a lot from the net, you just have to look for the right tutorials. :)
Well, thank you! You really know how to make someone smile! Haha!
Ha ha! Very funny Anna! :p
Are you sure you got the right ask box? Haha!
Thanks man! :D
That’s awesome! I’m headed to New York for college this fall. It’s great that you’re starting at such a young age. Keep at it! As for the blogs that I follow, here’s a link to a similar question I was asked: link
I’d love to have an all-film album. One of my goals! and thanks! :)
I keep my aperture around f/3.5-4 and since you’re using flash, I’d stick with 1/400-640. Experiment around those numbers and balance it out so you don’t get over or underexposed photos. If your flash has the Rear flash option, make sure to use that too, so you don’t get really dark backgrounds! Hope that helps!
Edit: Someone just replied on the note and brought up another option you can do with Rear flash. Thanks for reminding me spiritofzork! Haha! How could I forget. If you wanna do something like this, set your flash on Rear and bump up your shutter speed to how long you want to make light streaks. I usually don’t go longer than 2 seconds. Since more light’s gonna enter in the amount of time you set, you have to balance it out by making your aperture smaller to around f/6.3. The key here is, the first flash is your signal to move your camera around to get the streaks, and the second flash takes the subject. So don’t forget to tell the people you’re taking to wait for the second flash to go off! Have fun!
Thanks! :) They already chose a photo-of-the-week though! He had 2000+ likes on his photo. Crazy!
I think so! I mean, it’s Amazon, and it’s being sold by the Opteka company, so I’m pretty sure it’s fine! Haha! I didn’t know there were other spy lenses out there! It’s pretty cool, although I haven’t really used it. I feel like such a stalker when I try to use it. Haha!
Pretty much what I did when I had nothing to do, and that’s frequent. Haha!
The finished product: (Taking the tape out was the best part!)
