  1. I'm currently visiting Italy, to be more specific Rome.

    Rome is quite an amazing city with loads of things to see, however I took this opportunity to mess a bit around with my Phone (One plus 3t) and take a few pictures and go in to details regarding the scenes and how you can create better cinematics & pictures.

    So let's start off with some basic knowledge regarding Pictures.

     

    In Denmark (The country which is better than Sweden, just ask @PirateCaptain) we got a few words for the different kinds of Focal length (Works a bit like FOV/Field Of View for the Dank Gamurs out there)

    (Link for the Danish Wikipedia)

    We got:

    • "Super Total"
      • This image section gives a panoramic view of Copenhagen's skyline from the top of "Rundetårnet" (Danish building). It is also an established shot (e-shot) of Copenhagen, as the image both starts a new scene (or sequence) and marks the geography of the place.
        • lzCHrUo.jpg
    • "Total"
      • This crop's function is to show the girl in full shape and to visualize the whole environment around her. A total image can also be used as an initial creation shot.
        • j0O9MOs.jpg
    • "Half Total"
      • Now it's focused on the girls hips. This crop, also called a medium shot, is suitable for the start of a dialog scene. 
        • 23NlsGJ.jpg
    • "Half Close"
      • Only the head and upper body of the girl can be seen in this cropping, which is suitable for situations where a person is to be interviewed, or for dramatic sequences happening to a person
        • W7J3CUw.jpg
    • "Close"
      • The "close" also called close-up, shows the girl's face and is the optional cut that expresses a person's facial expressions and emotions the best. This is also optimal for making the views notice a specific action or event. This could be a Character hiding a gun, bottle falling over, motion in water or something else.
        • hUxQOgo.jpg
    • "Ultra Close"
      • Here, only the eyes of the girl are in focus. This detailed image crop is also called an extremely close-up and used to highlight a particular detail of a person or object.
        • AMwyHSm.jpg

    Now I will be working with these terms throughout this post.

    Here is a few pictures I took when out in Rome today:

    Make sure to read it all through.

    So I talked a tiny bit about colors, and there is an entire science scene behind it, however I will not spend 400 hours going in to details regarding the history of colors and such.

    A quick quick video explaining this can be found here:

    I love working on this website no doubt about that BUT... it's lonely work

    I miss my old job, having colleagues around me all the time, being part of a IRL community and the ups and down it entails.
    I've been working to make this website a success for the last 3 years and I succeeded but it comes at a cost I see now, I missed out on that precious human interaction that comes with having a real life job, and now I'm starving for human interaction.

    Teamspeak, Chat and all the other are good substitutes for life but it's just not enough, so I have have decided I had enough, I will start looking for a real job now with real coworkers and talks around the watercooler, if I don't do it now I'm afraid the absence from IRL will make it impossible to return to being a whole human and my depression might return with a vengeance, the first signs are already showing and I'm scared to be honest, NO FUKIN WAY i'll drive myself into homelessness again.

    Today I beat my fear of exposure and sent a picture of myself as part of a job application, it was hard I must admit, my paranoid was kicking me all the time while taking the pictures and importing them into my pc.
    I have to do this I'm aware to get some colleagues and try claw my way back to normalcy and enjoy life again, I can no longer hide behind my keyboard and pretend its real life despite how comfy it might be.

    Gonna start again slowly, found a decent job close to my home where I don't have to show my flawed self to too many people on the commute and it's something I love doing, I would be helping people get the right computer for their needs just like old time when I worked in custom pc manufacturing but this time I would have a lot more public interaction, which will be good to test my own limits in regards to public exposure.

    I might fail hard and come crawling back asap, but at least I will give it a try now, and get a feel for how bad my paranoia has become.

    Wish me luck!
