Hey Kesler, I've been following your work for a while now and just have to say that I think your work rocks! Your style is unique and raw in the capturing of your subjects. I shoot differently to you but find your work totally inspiring! Cheers
On your picture entitled "Rembrandt", did you shoot that using a green or blue filter? Or are those tones achieved totally in editing/production? Awesome stuff; you're making me want to switch from Nikon to Canon & Sony... Thanks!
No filters, just post. It can be done with any brand camera :)
I admire your work! I really love photography, but still I'm scared to buy a high quality camera. it's not because of the money, it's just that I'm afraid that I'm not talented enough to take beautiful pictures, that I can't capture the beauty. Photography is like my secret love, it's my second love next to fashion and to be honest, I've never really told anybody about it. But damn, I really want to do it. how did your career begin? maybe you can help me <3
Taking good photos doesn’t require a good camera, it requires talent and a creative eye. It takes a lot of dedication, inspiration, and perseverance.
The best advice I can give anyone is to try new things. Don’t knock it until you tried it.
i'm such a fan of your beautiful beautiful work!! and after shooting w/a point n'shoot for years i just ordered my first 5D! i've been looking through the manual and i'm so overwhelmed... are there any specific settings you recommend (color, white balance, etc) b/c it looks like you could spend a year just changing camera settings!
Its best to learn what each setting do and know how to apply them when you take a shot. I use M 100% of the time. Just practice a lot, should pick it up in no time.
Hi! So I just read and watched through your entire blog. Incredibly inspiring stuff you have here, really dig your style. Anyway, I'm really interested in becoming a better photographer, and am thinking of getting into some editing programs. So, this leads to me asking if you have any tips on what functions to play around with in editing? Like, do you have any primary tools you use? I know you believe that one should focus on the prices of taking the photo (10 parts photo 2 parts post), but! ..
I’ve always had the “less is more” approach when it comes to editing. Personally, I would say learn and understand the Curves adjustment like the back of your hand before anything else.
But yea, 10 part photo, 2 part post sounds about right :)
Hi! I just want to say that I really enjoy watching your photos, your work is amazing! I can sit for hours looking at them and come up with all kind of stories that may be behind them. And even try to match your pics with different songs, it's fun and inspiring, and it creates different emotions inside of me. Thank you.
Ok, so I was planning to write you a message about how much I adore your work, since I found your blog. One thing that I really appreciate (and of course love) about your photoes is, that they all look so natural and simple. The models are beautiful, because all I see is their natural beauty, not something from the 5 tons of makeups or the 6 tons of hairsprays. Your photoes are giving me the feeling of solitude and beauty, and it takes me to a whole different place. Keep up the wonderful work!
