I Took Matti Haapoja’s Challenge

          Mane, I love YouTube! I really love YouTube! I literally learned everything about blogging, photography, and videography from YouTube. I know, it’s an insanely resource of knowledge. One of my favorite Youtubers, Matti Haapoja, issued a Solo B Roll challenge. The rules were pretty simple. Shoot a 1 min video featuring yourself without any help from anyone else. Seems simple right? Wrong! 

          This was the hardest thing to pull off. Do you know how crazy you look filming yourself? Lol. It didn’t go exactly as I planned but I made the most of the footage I did get. I also had to represent for the home town. I might not win but if Matti likes or comments, I see that as a win!  

Here’s the video! 

           Also, my friends seem to think this could be a sneaker or Footlocker ad. Yo Nike holler at me!

Exploring the Old Bridge with a new camera.

     So I recently upgraded from my Sony a6000 crop sensor to a full frame Sony a7ii. It's been a great upgrade thus far and my photographs have definitely improved. I'm also using more manual focusing lens as well, which is further pushing my skills to the limit. 

     I recently met up with a group of my awesome photographer friends to take some shots at the Old Bridge aka The Memphis Arkansas Bridge. So I headed out with the new camera I purchased 2 hours prior with a Canon 24mm 2.8 FD manual lens my buddy let me borrow. 

Way up!  

Way up!  

By far the scariest part of the day
