Pro Tip #1

21 posts in this topic

For all you out there longing to be pro photographers, here's a little trick that I saw used today. Make sure you've got at least two cameras hanging around your neck, one having a lens that will create lens envy in 95% of the population. Position yourself into the street during the 4th of July parade and look professional:

Really, what's happening is that you are now in a position to beat all the little kids to the candy that the floats are throwing!!!!!

BUSTED!

Just who is that fat blob, anyway? Geez, Ken, thanks for sharing the flattering shots, good buddy. gringrin

That second one is what biologists call a predator assessment stare. Wolves, bears and mountain lions use it in deciding whether the prey is worth killing or not. In this case, I think said predator decided the game was too old and stringy to be of much value. Of course, with a big ole pot-bellied male like this yellow one, there ain't a lot of prey except for a 12-ouncer that would get him out of his crouch. But he still remembers how, so watch it. gringringrin

Man, do I need to go on a diet or what? frown

Uh, where was I going to take you to see showy ladyslippers next week? Can't seem to remember the location all of a sudden. gringrin

Next time, might I suggest a crop like this, unless you're going for truth in photojournalism. gringrin

Look, how he is hiding a small bag of candy under his knee, the poor child behind him can't find it and has since left for home in tears. Just look at the second photo, the Grandmother is dragging the weeping child away.

Grandma's dragging the child away, and the child is weeping, because of a cloud of gas around me that was chili the night before. Every photographer's got a bag of tricks to keep pesky youngsters from getting in the way of his shot, and that's one of mine.

Guess we could call that Pro Tip #2. gringrin

Steve, I don't think you need the chili. Just give him the look that you gave poor innocent Ken. That'll send any child away in tears.

And according to upnorth, probably somewhat more masculine, as well.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
