What an awesome desk!!!

Do you mean you merged those photos to make all screens properly exposed? I've watched some tutorials about doing that in photoshop actually, will have to try in lightroom!

Cortex is the bomb. I for sure will need to figure out some kind of system - my brain is absolutely useless when it comes to remembering things or multitasking. Just this morning i went to show an apartment to a person, and forgot the keys to the building... That's what makes me the worst ever office worker. Maybe photography's going to be more forgiving :) Or maybe i'll finally get my shit together and write lists of everything I need to do.

Awesome, thanks for the critique -that's super useful :) I just happened to be in that cemetery in Lviv at golden hour and got some nice shots. Included in the portfolio to pretend I knew what I was doing. I guess it worked! And lucky me people judging these were not photographers.

I think that's what they expect of me more or less: https://www.polycor.com/category-realisation/commercial/architectural-projects/

There are some good pictures on that site, but also not so great ones too. I think I can get something good with a little practice :)

The perspective control part is what I needed to know most, thanks for taking the time to write it all out. I knew about the tilt shift lenses, but only to do those bullshit shots, had no idea what they actually were for!

What a pep talk! I feel like I can do anything after reading this :D

Awesome! Once I have an itinerary set, for sure I post it on Hubski and try to meet as many of you as possible :)

Holy shit I got a lot to learn... Can't believe they hired me based on this portfolio: http://imgur.com/a/jhTns

That's just pretty pictures I took at random during travels - taking a picture when you have a specific subject is a whole other game.

Really appreciate you writing all this out - I swear i'm gonna take this writeup point by point and study up :) Now that i switched gears in my head, it's lack of knowledge panic time hahah. At least I have the traveling covered, booking places and living out of a suitcase going to be a breeze with that daily allowance. Used to shoestringing it hard.

Thanks for all that practical advice!

From what I understand, I get to make a list of things I need and they'll buy it. The lady only said a couple thousands so I figure I can only push it as far as body, 2-3 lenses and tripod. I can't even shoot on manual mode decently, let alone know my way around gear and lenses... And I got a really rudimentary knowledge of lightroom. First month is gonna be tutorial-fueled, that's for sure.

Do I really need flashes if I'm photographing big buildings and tombstones?

Solid relationship :) We've been living together for almost 2 years now, together for 5. I guess I feel like an asshole ditching our life together as soon as a cool opportunity presents itself, but he says if I want to go we'll make it work.

That grant is an "unemployed person does a volunteering project" kind of grant. So no chance of getting it if I leave. It's not even really my project but I've been involved for almost a year now and getting that money would really help out. Same thing, feeling like an asshole letting down people that counted on me.

Same with my friend's wedding - I promised I'll be there.

I guess my whole problem is that accepting feels selfish and like i'd be letting down people and going back on my promisses? Don't want to be that person that jumps ship all the time.

Been hearing about Trump getting impeached any minute now from the second he won. You guys think this is big enough to make it happen? I sure hope so, but seeing how he wiggled himself out of many situations before, I'm almost too scared to hope.

Yeah, I don't agree either. Just pointing out that technically you can visit the best sea in Ukraine without even leaving the country.

elizabeth  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Pubski: May 10, 2017

The best sea in Ukraine is in the Crimea region, that's technically yours right now ;) no restrictions for you to visit! But I'm not sure how you'd get there without passing through ukrainian territory actually.

Finally switched to summer tires this weekend!

Replaced the rusty back door while we were at it (bought it last year at the scrap). But the handle where the key's supposed to go rusted through too, so we'll have to make another trip to the scrap before hooking up the door completely.

Fixed the front glovebox, hoping if would stop that knocking noise when we break, but we drove around wihtout the glovebox for a few days and the noise was still there... a mystery I don't know if I want to solve honestly.
