Quickie Tipster: Hunting the Flares

14

Transform a normal shot into a creative shot. Lets hunt for the flares. Have fun my analogue friends :) Go out and face the sun!

Load your films(slide or negatives) and go out on hot sunny day..shoot faces the sun and seek for the magical lens flares! As we all know lens flare will create a great happy mood, and sometime give an extraordinary look to our photos! I had use various cameras to hunt the flares, even with my home made pinhole camera. Vivitar UWS is best choice! Fisheye camera and Diana mini are cool too :)

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
