I just had to get batteries for one of my film cameras and radioshack worked fine, not sure if those are international or not though!
That’s really nice of you thanks so much
Haha okay I’ll give it a shot! I guess for basics- my name is Torrey, that’s fairly obvious from my title. I’m 22 year old and I am a senior in college at Seattle Pacific University. I am a music major actually but have always been inclined to art (drawing, etc). When I was little I actually wanted to be a scientist so my brain is all over the place in a way. I’m actually really interested in multi-hemispherical disciplines as far as the brain, artistic/creative and rational/scientific. What is interesting is I actually got into music pretty late in life. But I really love it and I think the reason is because it is artistic but also very organized, music theory is very structured and if something sounds good to the ear there is a concept in theory that can explain exactly why it “works” and I think that is fascinating. Same goes for photography in a way. With 3 variables essentially, (shutter speed, iso, aperture) you can do some pretty amazing things. I also take great joy in the purer forms of art, film photography, or listening to vinyl for example. And I don’t think that is being “hipster” I think it is just the fact that for art to be held accountable in a way, a physical way, makes me appreciate it more. When a digital camera does all the work for you in auto mode, or autotune makes a voice perfect with the click of a button in a recording, I think some integrity is lost within that particular work of art. Obviously that is not exclusive to me though, tons of people share that opinion with me. And I am still learning a LOT about how to take pictures, the learning never stops! I think the momentum that was supplied to me for getting into photography was when my dad and I took a road trip from Washington to Colorado. We brought a camera, and I kind of just fell in love with the whole process. Being around natural beauty and then seeing it through a lens. With a general understanding of light, and the mechanisms that effect it, you implement creativity and passion and you are left with lasting images that tell a story, or elicit an emotion. And that is simply awesome to me and I have kept taking pictures in my spare time ever since. Thanks for the question!
Thank you!! And no problem I looked at your stuff I can definitely see you have a style emerging (at least from what I see) I think that it works well. Kind of soft and moody, and even a showcasing quality. All of those qualities are pretty popular on tumblr right now so keep it up! I like your stuff, keep taking pictures!
Thanks for checking my blog out, greatly appreciated!
