shit wizard dad



I always loved the niche end of photography, I did a bunch of 360ļ bubble walkthroughs when they were a brand new thing - made back the cash I put down for the 180ļ lens, the modal tripod head and leveling widget, and probably could have spun it off into more returns if I wasn't so chained by inertia. Of course you can make them with simple kit and a days training for real estate, its the 'money for shovels' tail end of that particular market now.

This made me :eyepop: when I saw it the other day though

perfect 180ļ SBS 3D video direct to your CF Card without needing a giant hollywood rig.

also a pic; sometimes just snapping stuff behind the scenes / during downtime can get you an all-time favourite.

not that anyone gives a gently caress but my rating system is like this

rate images 4 if they're good enough and 5 if they're standout. anything blurry or blinking gets an x and rejected. I don't know what to do with the remainders yet. hd isn't yet full

hm, I found the old project code (never throw anything away, folks) but it's all Flash-based for the rendering & controls, so I don't think you can even host / view it in a browser any more? Adobe's Flashviewer tool let me at least capture this for posterity though:

but its a shame you can't control the view and explore yourselves.

someone today who used to shoot real photos for money told me they thought my photography was good and morons make money taking way worse photos that I do so maybe I should just start charging money and see what happens

thereís a reason photographers charge double their rate for weddings. itís also what keeps most professional photographers in business

find local wedding photographers in your area, cold call them with your portfolio, and see if they're looking for assistants. the better ones don't do it solo. if you enjoydon't hate it enough to do it on the reg, leverage the experience into independent gigs

yah that's why it's the division between a hobby and a job op. the job version uses the same skills, it just ain't fun

when i did a lot of photography i did concert photos cause it was (a) stuff i was going to anyway (b) a fun change of pace that meant i wasnt just listening to the set for 45m straight and (c) guaranteed to have no commercial potential whatsoever, because indie musicians have no money whatsoever. this let it still be fun

if far rather get paid for photography than dealing with old people because getting paid to deal with old people really has sapped the joy out of it


when you first meet an old person theyíre nice but itís only a short matter of time if theyíre in the entitled boomer majority when something doesnít quite go their way and yeah Iíve just lost the joy since getting paid to listen to their poo poo
