I’ve been writing a lot lately about TFP and my desire to improve upon it. Why? It’s apparent that Time for Print is, in many ways, an outdated solution. It hasn’t fundamentally changed since the days of film and print (hence the name).
In case you didn’t see the title of this post, I’ll reiterate: “Abandoned Vail Warehouse, Scottsdale, a Wedding, a Short Film, and the Sasco Shoot.”
This sums up my last couple weeks.
I rented a camera for a wedding on Saturday. Booked a shoot for Friday to try out the camera (Abandoned Vail Warehouse Photo Scout). Got a call that the wedding was being pushed forward due to rain. Booked another shoot for Saturday (Scottsdale). The wedding got moved to Sunday (The Wedding). I’ve been working on and off on a Short Film and that was Tuesday after the wedding (The Short Film). Finished off with another shoot on this last Friday at the SASCO Abandoned Mine (Sasco Shoot).
I’ve only really finished processing The Wedding and The Photo Scout. Lots of great images from the Scottsdale Shoot. Working those next.
I have another shoot tomorrow morning. Ought to be interesting. Might have another on Saturday, too.
All of my shoots now are TFP. Doing an awful lot of it lately.
Stay tuned for more information on my new Easy Trade program.
I’ve posted hundreds of photos up for stock in the last couple weeks. I figured I would sift through my old files and see what I had in the vaults over the holidays. I also rediscovered some lost hard drives back in October and more in November that also had many terabytes of good, quality photo and video content. I knew I would find some, but I genuinely wasn’t prepared for the volume of stock that I found.
In all, I wound up finding over 350 images that met the criteria I was seeking. Beyond that, I narrowed it down to just under 300 after poring over some files that had serious (not feasible for fixing) issues which were not apparent on first review. Only when viewed at 100% was the issue apparent. Now, as a matter of course, I carefully examine each photo at 100% for detailed issues. Continue reading “Stock-ing Stuffers”
Goodwill likes me. They don’t love me, but they like me. I buy a bunch of stuff there and I donate a bunch of stuff there. It’s a win-win. Most of my most unusual costume finds have been there.
I am obsessed with finding weird costume items for models who will eventually wear them. I don’t necessarily know the models or what they will wear, specifically, but I do know that it will be from these interesting and unusual costume items.
