FELLAS.. photography critique! Move-in day..

[Quote] Def! Wish I could've had some control under B+W on Camera+, but it seems like a certain combination of effects will only go so far which kind of sucks haha. I can't find any apps that give more editing flexibility and the small screen makes edits more of a gamble. The shots were all kind of spur-of-the-moment, but i'll be sure to keep that in mind. Thanks for the input brother.

FELLAS.. photography critique! Move-in day..

Sup fellas, Shot these over the weekend while helping a friend move around. Empty crib with a few bare "first world essentials" = kind of a dope vibe. Let me know what you guys think! [Image] Used an iPhone 4S and Camera+ for edits. I'm really trying to promote the usage of smartphones as completely good alternatives to digital cameras / further the whole idea that the best camera is the one that goes with you everywhere. I made a tumblr as a mobile photography stream and started off with a few fresh shots. Again, def would love to hear what you guys think on it all! I know it's a little bit of a controversial topic, but it's exciting to see what pictures phones alone can take these days.

Do Yall Thank Going to School for Graphic Design or Photography or Film is Worth It?

Depends on what.. for web design/ui/interaction I think there are some valuable classes/lessons to be learned.. but nothing you can't pick up from the book or the internet. I know a lot of successful dudes in Ads who didn't have all that much schooling and went on to become creative directors, etc. For something like design.. it's tough to teach a particular style. You can learn a lot about different things and spend hours on relevant assignments, but it's largely something personal that you have to put in the work to develop on your own. In other words, you have to genuinely love making stuff. I know some guys who went to CMU school of design and they're okay.. but not as good as some people i've seen who went their way into anything art-related on their own. All things equal, everyone's technique is going to be the same. Better design schools with better brand names just have students who can use larger vocabulary to justify what they've made to people. You'll have that one rare case... but largely, the person will be the exception to the rule. There is a lot of mediocre shit out there.. but you have to be honest with yourself when you're designing so you can always be growing. A lot of people develop enormous egos but don't have the work to show for it because they've become complacent. It's fucking bizarre man.. seeing people develop that way because they think that everyone should follow how they see the world. If you don't expose yourself to wanting to be better, then it's harder to embrace new stuff (and in design, there's always something new). In all, with the right work ethic, some sense, and a lot of time.. you'll be okay. Lots of good resources out there.. smashingmagazine, photoshop tutorials... i'd just open up photoshop and start deconstructing stuff that you see everyday and try to put your own twist on it. You'll be wack when you start out but you'll grasp it if you keep going.

Nike Air MAG 2011 Shoot

[Quote] Seriously haha. Had to pinch myself for a minute.. I think generally the cues on the shoe stood the test of time every shoe made since then. Kobes, Hyperdunks, Lebrons. A little bit extreme on the length, but it's still clean.. a good balance between something that could've potentially been much noisier. Tinker is a genius.

Nike Air MAG 2011 Shoot

What's up fellas? I figured you guys would appreciate these photos here more so than anywhere else. The Nike MAG 2011s showed up at my doorstep about two weeks ago and I happened to have a camera laying around. So I did what any normal person would do.. I took some pictures. [Image] That's it! Wanted to share this with you guys because I thought the whole way Nike put this together was pretty cool (they didn't just throw these in an orange box and call it a day). Hope you guys enjoy.

new hype for f/w 11/12 = christmas sweaters?

[Quote] Hahahaha. That's the first thing that came to mind too. What the hell, Drake? I'm a fan of his music but damn... that sweater was the focus of that frame. I hope not.. really depends on what the sweater arrangement is like. Never liked Christmas sweaters, but I can see how one would be dope with the right combination of colors and design.

Occupy Wall Street

[Quote] Is there any sort of premise to Occupy Wall Street other than to have a platform to voice grievances? The protest seems to loosely cite documentaries they've watched and try to spice up their cause by directly extracting those examples. Yeah wages are dropping, and it's a consequence of people wanting better things at a cheaper price (American-made goods don't come cheap, and if they do, they come with compromise).. which is why people who run companies look overseas to begin with. Taxes on the wealthy should be raised, but more importantly, cutbacks in military spending should be as well. Technically, they should also be at the Pentagon and White House doing this thing. I trust Obama knows what he's doing.. he just doesn't have the power to do it alone, so he's sort of forced into playing politics with actions. We're talking about a system of checks and balances -- and you certainly can't expect reforms overnight if your congress hasn't changed.

Amazon Kindle Fire Official Discussion Thread

Anybody catch Amazon's event last night with Jeff Bezos showing off the new Kindle family? What do you guys think? 7" tablet for $199.99 and the content they have.. I think they're onto something. Shares the same OEM manufacturer as the BlackBerry playbook (Quanta) but at least half the price with a better OS. I've always been an iPad guy but getting a pretty well thought-out tablet for the price of an iPod touch seems hard to ignore. [Image] Read more: [URL]
