Taking Photography To Another Level

Taking Photography To Another Level

I picked this baby up on eBay since I’d been wanting to get back into film photography. It’s a Canon EOS 1n, a professional-grade film camera. It works with (almost) all of my existing lenses, so it seemed like a good fit. I just shot my first roll of Kodak Ektar 100 and can’t wait to get it developed.  I should have thought this through a little better, since this camera is…well… a bit… heavy.

It’s a boat anchor!

I’m going to have to get creative with carrying this when I go traveling, but after trying “smaller form factor” cameras and not liking them for being too small, I’ll make it happen.

The camera was a joy to shoot with, I’m looking forward to taking more great pictures in the future.

Do you have any suggestions or tips for getting back into film photography? Please feel free to leave comments below. Thanks!

 

I Love This Road

I Love This Road

 

I took this picture sometime ago… I forget how long it’s been. I always love pictures of roads that go off into the distance… It’s sort of makes you think about life in a way. It may be easier to go straight ahead for a while, but there will be bends and turns that you have to navigate safely in order to make it to your destination.

Can I Ask A Quick Favor?

Can I Ask A Quick Favor?

I promise, it’s quick, and will cost you nothing. You’ll be done before you know it.  It’ll actually take you longer to read this (hopefully short) post than actually do what I’m asking. 

If you couldn’t tell, I’ve dusted off my blog over the last few months and have gotten back into it. I really enjoy it; I love creating content. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to only make YouTube videos, or only write blogs, so I’m doing both. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to write about or make videos about, so I’m creating my content on just about anything that comes to mind. I have many interests, and am using that as my basis for creating whatever it is I’m creating.

I’m creating this content because I deeply enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with anyone who wants to read about them or watch my videos. That being said, I want to make sure that I’m getting as much exposure as I can, and sharing my material with as many people as possible. The truth is, I can’t do that alone. 

All I ask is that you share my blog and YouTube channel with your friends and family; anyone you think might enjoy what I have to say. I cover a wide range of topics: Taking cruises, Photography Equipment, Life Experiences, Weight Loss, Product and App reviews, just to name a few. One of the reasons I love having a wide variety of material, is it will give my readers and subscribers a chance to see things they may not be familiar with or aware of. 

So, that’s it. I’d be eternally grateful if you could share this post on your social media network of choice, and encourage your friends and families to do the same if you like what I’ve got here on my blog and YouTube channel.  You can find me on all forms of Social Media with the name iamjohnbamber – I couldn’t think of anything else to use, but since this is all about things that interest me why not just be…well…me!

Going Public: My Social Media Update

Going Public: My Social Media Update

If you all couldn’t tell, I deeply enjoy creating content; whether it’s a text post on my blog, taking pictures, recording music, or creating a video of some variety.  As I’d mentioned in my previous “Love Me Some Content” post, I’ve got stuff all over the place, but there was a small problem;  my various usernames didn’t match.

Some places I was jbrecording, referencing my online identity specific to my recording studio and making music. On Twitter, I was MiniCoopJeep, an homage to being the car guy that I am, and I simply used my name on YouTube for my videos up there. There was no cohesion between them, except for one thing. I was the cohesion.

So today, thanks to the help of one of my good friends, I’ve unified my online social media presence and am known with the moniker iamJohnBamber on all of my social media accounts.

So, why the change? Well, I did this change to separate my “public” life from my personal life. I’m not an online celebrity by any means, but I, just like anyone else, have as much of a chance to become one.  Will that actually happen? Who knows? We’ll see.

I’ve even created a public Facebook page so I can keep my personal Facebook content private.  Since I’ve created the public Facebook page, I will no longer be pushing these blog updates to my private Facebook account.  If you would like to follow along with my blogs and videos, you can subscribe here for e-mail updates, or visit my public Facebook page and click the “Like” button.

It looks like 2017 will be a great year, and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.
