Anonymous asked: What are some tips for photographers that are just starting out?
Hm, it really depends what do you mean by a starting out. Starting photography or starting to get into the industry?
If it’s the first one I am a little more use, as I myself need advice for the seconds one :)
I would say just shoot as much as you can. Shoot everything and everyone, always have your camera on you. Even if you don’t consider yourself a documentary photographer these photos will inspire your future work and provide practice of course. Also experiment, don’t be afraid of failing, because even if you do, it doesn’t mater :) read about photography! Stalk tumblr/models.com/vfiles, whatever else!
In terms of professional career my biggest advice would be make connections, put yourself out there. If there is any opportunity to get work in the industry- take it! You will meet amazing people and get the most valuable advice. If you are able to assist a more experienced photographer, do it! If you can shoot a signed mid, go for it!
Honestly I just want to say believe in yourself, take risks and don’t give up. If dedicating too much of yourself to this isn’t fir you, than you will not survive in this industry xx

Anonymous asked: Do you see a real difference between 50mm1.8 and 50mm 1.4 ?
Yes? To be honest my main problem with 1.8 wasn’t so much the results but the materials the lens is made out of. It’s put together so poorly that mine simply fell apart (and I know quite a few others who went through the same) the 1.4 on the other hand has been doing really well although I did have to get it fixed this summer after 2 years though. In terms of sharpness of focusing and such the 1.4 is still not great, but I love it regardless. It just takes more precision. One day I’ll buy a 1.2 :)
