FAQs

Also check out my Formspring for other questions I’ve ever answered.

What camera gear do you use?

Canon 450D with a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 most of the time. I also own an 18-55mm and a 70-300mm. There are some that were shot by a 50mm f/1.4 (sold) and a 35mm f/1.4L (rented sometimes).

For film—Polaroid 600, Fujifilm Instax 210 (sold), Olympus XA2, and the La Sardina.

What do you use to edit your photos/what is your editing process/what presets or actions do you use?

Lightroom with VSCO presets at the moment. For color shots I use the Fuji 800Z+ preset, with lessening the grain and orange/red hues, then upping the exposure a bit.

Do you shoot in JPEG or RAW?

Right now, RAW because I’m editing with VSCO. But for most of my past work, I shot with JPEG.

Do you do follow-backs/can you check my blog?

I rarely do follow-backs unless something made me click on your URL and I liked what I saw. I mainly follow photography or art blogs with original content.

As for checking blogs, I don’t have time right now, but if you fit the kind of blog I follow, then you’re welcome to drop your URL in my ask box.

What are your favorite photography blogs to recommend?

This list is an updated version of this one, as most of the people in there are no longer active on Tumblr. Also, a few of these (marked with an *) are outside (but worthy) links. Though they may have Tumblrs, I prefer their personal blogs.
