It's not just my "big" or "fancy" Camera.

You know, I love this topic. It really makes me laugh when people come up to me and wonder if I can take their picture with my fancy camera. Lol. I'm so tempted to reply with, "Let me just turn the switch to fancy mode so I can crank out some 'fancy' pictures for you." :)  My camera I'll admit is pretty awesome. I am currently shooting with the Canon 5D Mark II. The output is pretty outstanding. But I like to think that if it came right down to it I could still pull off some pretty amazing stuff on a Canon point and shoot. Someday I think it would be fun to go somewhere and trade cameras with someone using a point and shoot for the day and see what happens.

I'd like to argue that it isn't so much about the camera's size, make or model. It's all about who is behind the camera. It's the eye of the artist that has to learn to discover and to see. And that holds true for what to do with the image once captured. What do you do next to make the image shine with its full potential?

I used to spend about 8 hours of editing/stylizing on my images for every hour of shooting I did. I've gotten a lot faster since then. I think I'm currently down to about 2-3 hours for every hour if nothing goes differently than planned and depending on how much stylizing I'm planning to do on an image. And of course it depends on the client's taste.

Here is an example of editing and stylizing one of my images.



Add some padaz. (How do you like my new word?)


I'm a huge lover of antique images.


And now to do something totally different. :)

Capture. Create. Discover.
Something Amazing!
