Wow, i just checked out your sisters blog and her work rocked, then i glanced over your photography and it's amazing how talented the both of you are. Your blog is so gorgeous. Me and my bro are a graphic design and photgrapher team, but not as expressive was you and your sister. Beautiful images.
I’m flattered. There’s a certain serendipity between siblings who are artists, I find that photography and graphic design compliment each other nicely.
came across that new years eve pic you submitted to blackfashion (the colors in the background got me lol) and I loved it! what kind of camera do you use? I'm finally able to get a new one and I'm leaning toward either a D3100, D5000 or D7000....just looking for suggestions from someone more experienced lol
Thanks! Like 95% of the pictures posted on my blog, that image was shot on film. When it comes to fashion photography and planned portraiture, I usually shoot both film and digital. My digital camera is a Canon 5D Mark II. I used to work with Nikons, but after using a Canon I probably won’t go back.
For film I use a $20 Rollei point and shoot that I found at a thrift store. I like the simplicity of the fixed focus film camera and the fact that I don’t have to feel bad about beating it up or burying it in the bottom of my purse. Plus, there’s more room for magical mistakes when working with film.
If you want to make a business out of it, go digital. If you want pretty images for blogging and personal purposes, film and photoshop go a long way :)
