Ramblings from the Pretentious Photographer

Order of Events:

inappropriatetouchtuesday:

9:50 PM: Receive text from Jess telling me to play butt pirate matchmaker and get my friend Nick to text her bff Robert.

10:24 PM: Mission accomplished. Like a boss.

Just to clarify, Sara texted Nick saying “My friend Robert wants your boner in his butthole.” And then when she told me this, I responded with “Why did I date you?”

And even though I’m a sassy douchebag, I miss mine too.

This is my baby, my Sony Alpha 300. It’s considered a semi-professional grade camera, but I don’t give a fuck. You can make anything work if you know how to use it, not like people realize that anymore. I was reluctant to use a Sony, but found it’s not too different from using a Minolta. Fuck Nikon. Go Sony or Canon or go home.
Shooting style: Fast shutter speeds, low ISO settings, natural lighting, auto-focus only when needed, and slim to none Photoshop. My opinions on Photoshop…. We’ll get into that later.
Actually, I have a LOT of opinions on photography and photographers today… Shocking.
I still LOVE film cameras. Film photography NEEDS to stay around, it will never be obsolete.
I do have a Minolta Maxxum 7xi, but waiting to get a Canon AE-1. Maybe one day.
If anyone would like to donate a low-end DSLR camera so I can get a 665nm IR conversion done, it would be greatly appreciated.

Reznor, Trent.
Mastermind of Nine Inch Nails. One of the most creative and successful artists. Ranging in masterpieces such as Broken, The Downward Spiral, Pretty Hate machine, etc. Also, he is one of the most successful recovering drug addicts that is still active in the industry today. (Unlike Marilyn Manson, seriously, look at that asshole.)Besides, who else in the world could say “Fist Fuck” and win a Grammy???

“Get your god in my way and I will bring you the rapture.”
There are many few people in the world that I can say that I idolize but Henry Rollins is one of them.
I loved him in Black Flag, Rollins Band, “The New Guy”, and everything else he does.

And this is how I feel about 85% of people with DSLR cameras. Fuck you all.

Who uses tumblr besides the lonely teenage girl vying for attention, thinking that since she has 200-something followers means that there is some type of purpose in her life?

Who uses tumblr besides the porno creep who posts “gratuitous” photos of themselves, trying to prove that they’re hot shit, when secretly they’re just the fool with no self-esteem.

Tumblr is just a place where these assholes try to stick out more than the next person. Thinking that they deserve to be the best, just because they can find more demented Hello-Kitty pictures than you can.

"If this is just a post about how much you hate tumblr, why bother joining?"

Because I know I’m destined to actually be something. I’m not pretending in my own little fantasy world.

View at your own risk. Read ahead if you’d like, leave if you don’t.

When it comes to my own photography, criticism is preferred, not just welcomed.

Thank you, and welcome to the Side-Show of Fuckdom.
