 When I go shooting I take up to 5 different size lenses. I shoot w/ Nikon D700, FX format. The sensor is the same size as a 35mm negative. I know with my choice of lens I will get sharp detailed…Continue

I think really the mood I'm in, is what gives me what I see, of all I meet on my path in life.
Currently, I think it's a bit tricky, that. I miss to be / get better technically, so that I can quickly get the picture I am looking to take, right away.
By saying I want to get better at the technical, I mean both the camera and find the subject's right "angle", light and shadow conditions. Feels like I'm not going on right now, if I do not take me time to study these things. But, I think really, I have also experienced earlier in life, that when learning new things, so you can see how little you know .... and it can sometimes feel a bit tricky, if you've been feeling that one is at full speed toward something that might resemble a future in photography and butter on the sandwich
And then, folks, then are you among them who inspire looking at your pics, and get usefull critic to my pics is also inspiring...

Hey Bradley....
I tend NOT to answer my Mobile phone, If I'm out taking photos... True escapism LOL

I don't think my cell phone has that capability either... it was a "free' upgrade so it is very, very basic. :)

tell you the truth i dont even use an mp3 player. I take my phone out and use thaat with some ipod earbuds for now. That way if someone is trying to get intouch during my shoot i know right away because it shuts the music off for a few seconds. Due to all these advancements in phones i believe most now can run that function so you don't have to buy an mp3 player if you don't have one.

Music while out in the field... never thought of that since I do not own any portable music player... sounds interesting though. I do play music while I am post processing in Photoshop and I know that is a great creative help! Thanks for the idea... :)

Dear Bradley
I think that is a great idea to listen to music to get the creative juices flowing.
I never tried that approach and maybe I will give it a go sometime.
Warm Regards

That's a great Idea Bradley....
Most of the photographs, I take, are outside, I like to hear the natural sounds of nature.
Having said that, I will take my MP3 player with me, on my visit, to the Coventry canal / canal basin and experience some gentle classical music, which I'm now looking forward to...

what influences me is music. Everytime i go out shooting i always make sure i have some type of music going on to help suit the mood.
for example:
BaW= orchestral
nature= meditational
cityscape= jazz

just something that has begun to help me

If we are looking at what photographers have an influence on the way I work I could name many but only intend to name a few.
Ansel Adams : because his work was perfection
Joseph Karsh : for his stunning portraits
Avedon, Bailey, Capa, Cartier-Bresson, Carlos-Clarke, Donovan, Bert Hardy, McCurry and McCullin to name but a few. I have followed and studies a broad spectrum of different photographic styles and have been influenced to some degree by them all at different points in my picture taking life. I could name many more but this post would go on all night.
