Two Thousand Miles Away

 

I call to you, I wait for you
I drank you drop by drop
And I thank you for beating all the trusting out of me
You showed me the world is just an empty motel room

And I will die in Wyoming in a drugstore parking lot
So high I’ll believe that I am parked outside your house
Two thousand miles away

I call to you, I sang for you
I lose you drop by drop
And I thank you for taking all you ever could from me
You showed me the world is just the things you keep to lose

And I will die in Wyoming

A Month With My Sony a6000

 

 

 

I was expecting a lot from my new camera and I can say that I am not at all disappointed. I would like to list here weaknesses and strengths.

Strengths :

  • It’s a light weight. 
  • A lot of Mpx – 24Mpx
  • It’s fast – 11 shots/second
  • A fast autofocus
  • Tilting 3″ LCD – But I am not using it…

Weaknesses :

  • Poor battery life – If you do photo for more than 4 hours, you’ll need this and this. And it frustrates me a little in the long run…
  • It’s an electronic viewfinder – It’s hard to get used to it…

But apart from that…

…appart from mega pixels and the big camera… There is one thing that fascinates me. I took the time to stop on some new blogs in the last few weeks and, I realized that many managed to get my attention while they had no professional cameras at all. They just can capture the essential.

So no matter how many mega pixels you own. If you can transmit emotions in your photos, you already have 90% captured. Congrats to all those who can do it with minimum equipement. I am not sure I could do it…

Gaze

 

Whenever I gaze up at the moon, I feel like I’m on a time machine. I am back to that precious pinpoint of time, standing on the foreboding – yet beautiful – Sea of Tranquility. I could see our shining blue planet Earth poised in the darkness of space.

Black & White with Nik

Some of you already know this picture. I wanted to process it again with Nik Collection and I pretty much love the result.

Being Busy

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.

T-Three

I don’t know if I told you already, but I rarely like the result of my pictures on the aspect of detail and precision. Maybe it has something to do with the poor Camera, my Canon T3… Maybe ^^

This is why I like the painting effect in Photoshop. It had precision, contrast but the way the picture is framed and the subject still mine.

I am a bit down lately about the pictures I do. I feel like I can see some kind of limits, I cannot define those limits that I feel but, I need to try different things, just to see if it could bring me somewhere else or, maybe make me stop doing picture.

It must have something to do with this damn T3…
