Happy, Happy Fun Time. All Fun All The Time.

    Hanging out in the studio, surrounded by super models.  Being photographed for Rolling Stone.  Grooving on the new ethos of ultra coolness.  Chilling, thinking about poverty......in a good way. (Taken with Swiss light you can't even imagine yet with cameras made for the fashion Special Forces...)


Filling in for Kirk tonight is famous photographer, Mark Focus



Want to take better photos? !!!!!!!!!  Here's my TOP five list of ways to excel:

1.  Make sure your camera is in focus.
2.  Think about pretty backgrounds and then find some.
3.  Take pictures that will make everyone happy.
4.  Make sure your batteries are happy and they'll treat you like a king.
5.  Think happy thoughts and wish them into your photos!!!!!



(Kirk will return tomorrow.)

Nr 5 is crucial!

What You Feel Is What You Get

Or more generally speaking (but it basically amounts to the same)

What You Give Is What You Get

Sad part is you hardly ever see this advice...

btw, took your advice and traded out the cat photo on my web page for a pensive looking coyote.

What the Hell?! How did Mark Focus get ahold of my password? What is all this positive and uplifting crap about? This blog is all about pessimistic cynicism. Didn't he get the memo?

Mark forgot the most important rule of creative photography: Make sure the sun it over your shoulder....

What about: wear socks? I heard that 99% of professional photographers wear socks. That's what Zack Arias says.

Awesome advice, Kirk! I would also restate #5 as "Love what you do!", as you obviously do!
