“When an English speaker doesn’t understand a word of what someone says, he or she states that it’s ‘Greek to me’. When a Hebrew speaker encounters this difficulty, it ’sounds like Chinese’. I’ve been told the Korean equivalent is ’sounds like Hebrew’,” says Yuval Pinter
How DSLR cameras are now the new ‘thing’ at my school now. All these dumb conformists are forking out a ton of cash for a DSLR because apparently they’ve been ‘interested in photography for a while.
These people don’t even know how to use a DSLR camera. FYI- there are other features other than ‘Auto’ [the ‘point and shoot’ feature] on the camera. :|
A picture of your dog, a tree/leaf, or you throwing up a peace sign, is not instant photography because you got a camera that actual photographers use.
Picnik or whatever the fuck it’s called. LEARN TO PHOTOSHOP.
Tacky editing with picnik. Oversaturation [turning yourself orange], or blurring out your skin to make it appear smooth, or adding lame text [“BFFS FOREVARR<3”] is fucking TACKY. Especially if you edit so much that you can’t even tell what the picture was supposed to be in the first place.
So, I know exactly what you’re talking about. Since my first year at my school I’ve planned on taking photography in year 12 (which is the first year it’s available) because I thought it would be an escape from all the tacky people around me and I would, for four hours a week, be surrounded by like minded people. Apparently not, seems most of my year wants to do it. In fact, there’s this one slutty girl, you know the type, one of those girls you look at and they just seem sticky and dirty - she said something along the lines of “I take pictures at parties, I should be good at photography.”
So, thank you for saying that. Thank you ever so much.
“Clay is molded to form a cup, But it is on its non-being that the utility of the cup depends. Doors and windows are cut out to make a room, But it is on its non-being that the utility of the room depends. Therefore turn being into advantage, and turn non-being into utility.”—Lao Tzu (via reluctantbuddha) (via quote-book)
