what you smiling about?

what you smiling about?, originally uploaded by payl.

I would hope that this is the last of people shots i'm going to upload for a while. Not that i didnt like to shoot people, but my camera has been without any tripod and night-time testing for too long.

if only it wasnt something kinky she was smiling about

Lots of girl photos lately. Not that i would really have anything against shooting girls or the attention it gets, but i want to do somehting else soon or else it will get monotonous.

Speaking of that, dear reader, is two photos a day too much? Have the photos been monotonous lately?
I know that being exited over a new camera has had me posting more and would like to know Your opinion on this.

Yesterday i figured that there might be more reasons to why it's hard to take good pictures at average estonian parties next to the photographer being a lousy punk.
If the place is full of plastic bottles and white plastic cups, they tend to sneak themselves into the photos too. As it happens, i find cheap plastic bottles and cups derogatory to the quality of a photo.

So now you know what i discovered.

ski trip gallery up

The photos i took during the ski trip to Kääriku can be seen here.
Some random photos of walls and things too, which might not interest the general population, but a man has got to do his best, no?

I have noticed that after getting my new camera i seem to have started to upload lower quality material again (not referring to this photo, as such). I suppose it's just the exitement of a new toy and i'll try to refrain myself from doing so in the future.

There are a few more shots up in flickr, so click on the above photo if interested.

i love all you lot

Now, as some of you might know, (most of you people reading this were present anyhow i can see by the number of hits this blog gets) it was my birthday yesterday. As a coincidence, it also happened that the party was held yesterday. It also also happened that, sad as it is, nobody had any cameras along. You might wonder why photography nuts like me or M had no cameras along, but then again, everyone knows you can not drink (lemonade) and take photos at the same time.
As fate would have it, it also also also happened that i got a car. That, i personally consider the best part of the day. Do expect pictures of her soon enough.
As for other things, as much as i have heard, most of the people enjoyed the party and that is good.

So see you next year,
Yours Truly

announcement vol 2

Due to popular demand and slight miscalculations on my part, i've now made all the ball photos available for download right here.
Do note that i would like to be notified when you want to use them for public display.
Point is, a little hint (and perhaps a hyperlink if you decide to use them in orkut or rate or whereever) to my name wouldnt be too much to ask for capturing how beautiful you lot looked out there, is it?

Thanks in advance,
Yours truly.

The more i look at yesterdy's photos, the more i dislike them. I was so busy with the camera settings and so on that i didn't really have any time to focus on the composition and the things that really matter. But i suppose it is that way with all beginnings.

The photos from the ball are now up. I do not consider it a very good set overall, but it's okay for taking photos with my new camera for the first time.
I collected a few good shots into this blog, but you can see the rest here.
