absolute unit of a book.some things that stood out.1. Lots of family pictures. They aren't necessarily good or bad, they feel more personal and would definitely fit on a family album.2. Lots of the pictures were not taken by him. Of course these are portraits of him. 3. Mirror selfies up the ass. The captions are what makes a lot of this gold.4.

>>3511795I could dig an entire book of selfies, but they would have to be creative instead of just doing random shit in front of the mirror.
Op was not a faggot this time. Good job lad. You saved /p/.
>>3511863Thanks for posting.I'd like to see some more photos he actually took but are not of himself. If there's any more left. And at least a few of the family shots.I think we can admit many of us have a lot of (shitty) selfies saved somewhere, so nothing wrong with that, but I think we can also agree that its not the proper content for a photobook made to publish. Even more so, not under the titel "What I see" because this implies "All I see is myself.">>3511831>we stopped just to take pictures because it was such an awesome landscapeas someone who is bored by photographing landscape and prefering portrait this picture is understandable but 1. its not shot by himself 2. could have used the scenery much better.All in all his photos are mostly snapshits, which doesnt matter, as long as he has fun taking them and likes them, but nothing to expect people to pay for.He was growing up when he took most of the photos, hopefully he's now growing his skills, talent is not something we see here.
>>3512014I'll post some more of his stuff before posting family pics, I have a few more before the end of the book.more self portraits not taken by him
The irony is that Brooklyn Beckham gets shit on for his mirror selfies, while Paul Sepuya’s mirror selfies were in the Whitney Biennial this year. Both are equally shit.
more snapshits, but at least its not him
>>3512045the pictures are just so boring. it's really just random snapshots of some cool teen with a monochrome filter.
>057>a weekend in paris>>3512048they really are very low tier instagram quality. I felt the whole book was so he could show it to girls and subtly show them he's good looking and 'artsy'.The intention of the book is very far from showcasing photography or a subject, and like another anon said, 'what i see' is more like 'All I see is myself'.Very self absorbed garbage. Later when I post the family picstures the tone changes a fair bit, since those are the only collection of pictures that I can say had real intention and thought behind them. Aside from very few pictures, all are snapshitty and vapid.
no decisive moments, I wonder how shitty these would look in color, like all the other BW stuff in the book.
>058>running in kenya>too f**king earlythese look like the pics youd take when you buy a new lens
>skating is the only thing i love as much as photography and it's great to shootsquare picture of a square picture
>venice beach l.a.mediocre, unlike the rest of the book.
>>3512059I even believe him that he takes a lot of photos and 'loves' it, but apparently he has never put a single thought into any picture. He just like pressing the shutter button.
mirror selfies #17 and #18these are free on instagram>>3512061A friend of mine has a 35mm Leica and the shutter sound is really something.
>skating in n.y.c>pixelated but i love itSo again, not him. Why is he not crediting anybody?
>action shot of meanother good picture not taken by him next to...>mirror selfie #19
>>3512061Sounds like he's the next Eggleston.
>cruz about to drop in>we skate together a lot - he's pretty good!not bad
This is one his sister. Even though the caption is also self-absorbed, the moment comes clear and they look like they really love each other.Which is good. He's a good designated family photographer.
Another example of a good family picture.

>>3512094>>3512089>Whitney BiennialLOLhttps://news.artnet.com/art-world/art-industry-news-july-22-2019-1606372>Collective Claims It Has Found New Evidence Linking Kanders to Violence in Gaza – The activist collective Forensic Architecture has become the latest to withdraw their work from the Whitney Biennial in protest of the museum’s board vice chair Warren Kanders. The move comes after a member of the collective discovered a bullet in Gaza used against Palestinians that he says appears to have been made by Sierra Bullets, a weapons manufacturer partially owned by Kanders. Forensic Architecture’s Whitney work, Triple-Chaser (2019), is a video that aims to explore how weapons produced by Kanders’s company Safariland are used around the world. “What may have started as the ‘Tear Gas Biennial’ is now the ‘Sierra Bullet Biennial,’” a member of Forensic Architecture said. (Hyperallergic)The best part is if you follow the links, you see a picture of the bullet, and it's an unfired bullet...https://hyperallergic.com/510367/forensic-architecture-biennial-withdrawal/Why the fuck does anyone believe these insane as fuck activists about anything?
>>3512051The dude's a Beckham. He hardly has to show anything to get pussy. I'm thinking more that this is a result of the people around him never disagreeing with him. I'd like to think there is a troll in his entourage that pitched him the idea to put out a book though.
>>3512060Interesting how one can spend time at a skatepark full of people who actually seem to engage in the sport and not get away with anything more worthwhile.
>>3512098>Jewish arms dealer gets on the board of the Whitney museum>aids board in furthering exceedingly progressive exhibitions>gets so progressive that Palestinian protestors disrupt the biennial>leftists demand resignation of head Jew who sold arms to IsraelPure pottery
>>3512105You forgot>crazy, unnamed activist claims to find a single bullet that's definitely-absolutely-must-have been fired in anger that kinda, maybe matches the bullets from this small ammo maker that happens to have links to the art gallery that plans to exhibit a work by artists that the activist works for
Disregarding the quality of the photos and captions>photos spanning across the page binding>all the photos taken by other people>photos taken by other people aren't even creditedI hate this book just for these
>>3512100Thankfully some people know a gold mine when they see one.
>>3512098>>3512105>>3512111This is what a fired bullet looks like. So if the "researcher" found that bullet in Palestine, either the Jews are throwing bullets at the Palestinians or the real logical conclusion would be that the Palestinians have somehow got their hands on hollow points and are firing them at the Jews.What's also interesting is most all of Sierra's rifle hollow points have to be loaded longer than standard ammo. This means that even if you can load them into the magazine, the rifle won't feed them, so you'll have to put them in one at a time.
I love his work, he deserves his work to be published and the all praise he gets. He'd be published even if he wasn't from the Beckham family. The haters on here need to keep in mind - he's already more successful and talented then you'll ever be, and he's only 20!
>>3512153Using the word "hater" and equating their success to the person in the subject is brung this shitpost down to a 2/10. At least you took the time out to write it.
>>3512153Nice bait, the irrelevant e-celeb image really rounds things out nicely. I'll give you a solid (You) got effort.

>>3512166>printing a creepshot in your photobookmad lad
>>3512064Any skateboardfags here? Is that action shot a trick that can be landed into anything or is it just him fucking up but he decided to use the picture anyway because he thinks he can trick people into thinking he can actually skateboard?
>>3512208That's just what flipping the board looks like. Sorry senpai. He could have stuck it or faceplanted, can't really tell.
The tragic part is that he will never get any better because no one will ever tell him that he’s shit. Imagine living that kind of life, where no one can be honest enough with you to tell you that maybe you should take some lessons or something before you put out a book. I mean he’s got so much going for him in terms of his upbringing and whatever. But just imagine not having a single friend that will look you in the eyes and tell you that your photos kinda suck. It must be an abstract kind of hell.
>>3512216But he does get better by the end of the book. Kid can definitely get better. The article about him not knowing the basics doesn't shock me. All these photographs look like they were shot on auto. Imagine having a whole studio with lights and equipment and not knowing what to do with all of it.
>>3512216>But just imagine not having a single friend that will look you in the eyes and tell you that your photos kinda suck. It must be an abstract kind of hell.It's the same kind of hell a lot of us are in, not because we don't have any friends who wouldn't tell us that, but because we don't have friends who know any better.
>>3511789How come David Beckham is so handsome? but I have seen his family and they look like inbred chavs, literally way below even average english people. His children are also quite average
>>3512221>because we don't have friends who know any better.If you can fool your friends, then you can fool the rest of the world.>>3512227At least they're not fat. That automatically makes them a 7/10 in America.
>>3512143Lamo at this guy. Cant remember his name, but fuck, I remember this performance. Probably the single cringiest thing I've seen on tv
>>3512216I met this lad at college a long time ago, angry teen and a "painter". He was a bit of a dickhead so I avoided him.About five years later I bumped into him (he was living in the same street as me). We hung out a bit but his painting had actually got worse and he was even more of a dickhead. I ended up accidentally stealing his life as "the painter" amongst other things. Over a few drunken nights I tried to explain why it was all going to shit. He moved away not long after.Ten years passed and I met him again a couple of times. Now he was verging on being human scum. He looked me in the eye and said "thank you for telling me my painting was shit". He's an angry, ginger, out of control tosser. He wasn't being sarcastic or ironic.Some people cannot be helped, all you can do is tell them the truth.
>>3512231So much better. I just dont get it, how can there be so much variation between siblings? Very likely that all of them have different fathers, wouldnt be that surprising given he comes from lower working class english background

>>3512239Holy shit. When I said 7/10 I meant his kids. Genetics in general is pretty fucking weird. Pic related is Lesnar's kids, both from his ex-wife. The son is 6'4", handsome as fuck with the body of a Greek god. The daughter, looks like someone cloned and gender swapped Lesnar. On the plus side she seems to be a high school/collegiate athlete, so at least she inherited her father's athleticism. Not giving her that much would have just been far too cruel.
>>3512167I would like to see some more of the colour pictures.Maybe something showing how clueless he's about photography like >>3503719>>3511776>>how to hold a yashica properly>2 lenses for 2 eyes, the soviets had it all figured out.I came to this thread to laugh, thanks OP.
>>3511863Gracias OP, de verdad. Espero que pronto puedas disfrutar de una centolla de la ría o un buen pulpiño :)
>>3512063Normalfags don't know shit about crediting shit. That's why there's the occasional hubbub when a celebrity posts a photographer's photo and doesn't credit them. Of course nobody gives a shit except for photofags on websites like fstoppers or whatever.
It's kinda cute how people are pretending to know some shit about the art world are getting twisted over someone appearing in pictures that they're claiming as their own.Fuck, I'd figure that Uncle Terry threads have been around for long enough for you tards to catch on, but I guess that's giving you too much credit.Anyway, the biggest names you know are as likely as not to do almost none of their "own" work. Their name is little more than a name brand. Their teams make all the shit that they sell under their brand. It's thought of in the same way as the old painting and sculpting masters who merely oversaw the works being created.
>>3512073When I started street photog I started to take pics like these fucking Christ, even I was aware they were shit
>>3511717Thank you OP from the bottom of my heart. This thread made my day.
I thought he's like a 16 teen, but apparently he's 20 and enrolled in some design college.Reminds me of the kids in a local private college. Privileged children of bankers, lawyers. Hanged out with them sometimes, and boy the depth of engagement in whatever they do is super shallow. I bear them no ill will, they're polite and inoffensive even, just that their lack of commitment and motivation to work hard is incredible.
>>3511717Its great that special people have the confidence to do there own book and get the spelling right, he's a treasure, a lot of heart
>>3512236>tfw you play your friend your music and he bristles with jealousy
You need to post this at /lit/ I'm sure it'd cheer those guys up
>>3512172Probably because of the creepshot(s)?
>>3511754>not saying "living over the hedge"he blew it.
Someone screen cap this thread and tweet it to our boy. He’ll probably never see it, but we gotta try.
>>3512269Peter Lik doesn't do much of his own work these days. He has a team of people literally just photoshopping images together. Is this common in the art world? yes. It's still horseshite of the highest order and we should still call it out.
>>3511768>5 so far. these made me sigh outloud in the airport.Did the pictures make you go to the airport?
>>3511717Kinda disappointing. Some shit, some quality, way too much random averageness for what was hyped. It's like a random thread on /p/, except it's got a lot of images. One thing's for sure, he got a shitty editor. Spacing, design and blurb selection for this book is way worse than the content. Should have been much shorter, with selected highlights, properly formatted, and you'd be able to present him as a good photographer to the public. The way it is, it's as if it was self published, or that editor hated the kid, or that he was just completely incompetent.Op, if you can, take an image of credits section if it's showing who worked on it.
>>3512416> and you'd be able to present him as a good photographer to the public.
>>3512437Would need it from Penguin I guess.
what camera does he use?
>>3512485Found this...He's taking a photo of his camera that he's wearing. Also from www.heatworld.com: "He is GREAT at photography, like really bloody great."This is what normies think.
>>3512485The one he has with him.
>>3512497>lens capWhy even use those outside of storage because uv filters exist?
>>3512485Fuji X100 and Leicas.
>>3512524>using anything but the dedicated hood on a 35 Cron ASPH
>>3512524> equipment producers design coatings to protect lenses from scratches and flares that you can shirt wipe a million times without any damage > puts on a Tsingtao bottle glass 100% UV PROTEKSHN ULTRA GRADE GORILLA ASS SKINNY FIT FILTUR on it not to use a cap
>>3512524UV filters negatively impact image quality on digital cameras. Any time you introduce more glass, you degrade image quality and add more chance of lens flare. So outside of film where UV filters are important, it's best to avoid them. Use a lens hood or cap instead.
>>3512524A lens cap actually provides some protection. A UV filter doesn't.
>>3511812Yes. Absolutely we can.
>>3512583No, we can't. This is just how juveniles are.
>>3512535>not using both lens hood and filterYou can't live the one you have with you lifestyle if you have to be scared for your lens.
>>3512535>So outside of film where UV filters are importantNot even that. UV is absorbed almost completely by glass, you need special quartz lens elements to allow it to pass. So a normal multi element lens takes care of UV almost completely. (UV contribution might be 10 stops or more lower than the normal exposure in intensity).So a “UV” filter doesn’t do anything more than simple glass, or using a lens with an extra element.And lastly, most films (especially colour ones) have a UV mask in the emulsion filtering stray UV light, and even the B&W ones are more careful with their sensitization and don’t extend into the uv spectrum much, as they used to. Maybe an old style orthochromatic emulsion might, but not most films commonly used.Long story short, “UV” filters are useless on film too. They’re so useless, that filters that actually did something to cut UV and produce a visible effect, the manufacturers would advertise them as “anti haze” or “skylight” etc., to differentiate them from useless “uv” ones.
>>3512611You do know that most of the reason lenses are so expensive is that they're smothered in coatings that protect against scratches and damage, right? So buying a UV filter is almost always completely pointless, ESPECIALLY the cheap chink shit $5 ones most of /p/ uses. They're made of horrible uncoated glass which hurt the quality of your images. Just don't bother, it's a scam. >>3512613I know, only expensive filters are worth a damn for film and beyond pointless for digital. It's sad to see this UV filter scam spread on /p/. It's as much of a scam as gold plated HDMI cables. And the chinks know it too. They must be laughing all the way to the bank selling shit worthless glass to paranoid photogs.
>>3512611Literally the only two actual uses for a uv filter is completing weather sealing on lenses that needs it to be weather sealed and to give you a way to easily get back to clean glass (one time) if there's shit like mud flying by taking it off.Otherwise it does literally nothing. There's zero protection as they take so much less force to break than it does to scratch your objective lens it's like putting a piece of cardboard over a bulletproof vest then pretending that the cardboard is doing anything but costing you extra money.
>>3512618>it's like putting a piece of cardboard over a bulletproof vest then pretending that the cardboard is doing anything but costing you extra money.Based, awesome way to put it.It seems like nobody likes to be parted with their money more than the average photographer. The amount of snake oil bullshit out there is as bad as the gym supplement industry. I know I blew a ton of cash on useless crap early on before I slowly learned my lesson.
>generous person buys book and posts shots from it for shits and giggles>/p/ argues about filters
>>3512620Nobody is arguing. Pretty much everyone knows UV filters are snake oil bullshit except a handful of clueless newfags.OP seems to have run out of material to post so there's nothing to discuss now.
>>3512624>UV filters are snake oilthisHowever; when I got my x100 the lens arrangement looked very vulnerable to abuse. Not the glass but the focusing mechanism, it looked like a good knock to the front element could fuck up the motor/gears.I did the hack where you smash a cheap uv filter and screw a good one on to it. I hardly ever use it but in a riot situation or shit flinging fest it will protect the lens/mech. Also the hack option still works with the case, the expensive fujifilm adapter doesn't. Last time I bought a new prime lens the sales pitch for a uv filter was a bit embarrassing for me and the sales guy...
>>3512624>there's nothing to discuss now.Who the fuck are you that have a say in that?! It's a day old thread, thank you for shitting on it already.Nobody is arguing your stupidities, because you're only one being a stupid dick by having stupid tech monologues in a good thread. And what you're saying is bullshit anyway. If you wish you can take your nonsense to sqt.
>>3512648Agreed. There's a gear thread for shit like this to be discussed. How the fuck are UV filters related to that photobook? Look at the mirror selfies, the guy doesn't use a filter.
>>3512618I literally only use it because I can be less careful when quickly cleaning my lenses knowing I'm not fucking the front element up if I have to while shooting outside (saltwater splash etc)The whole dropping it or bumping it is not even an issue since sony decided to use aluminum rings in their autofocus motors which in some gmaster lenses actually hold the heaviest elements (why they did this is for weight and attempting to make it smaller is my guess. Dropping my camera 2 feet or less off the ground or quickly bumping into something wont shatter the lens but it can warp the ring which can brick a lens just as bad as shattering the front element.
>>3512652Sounds like you got a shit lens. Report it to the gear thread.
>>3512649If you actually bothered to read the thread you'd see that someone made a post asking why Beckham is using a lens cap instead of a lens filter >>3512524. That's why we're talking about it. Since UV filters on digital cameras are snake oil for retards.>>3512648If you have a good argument why UV filters aren't snake oil other than "what ur sayin is bullshit" , let's hear it. I'm sure OP will be back with more good shit soon.
>>3512649>>3512648Wonderful compelling conversation guys. A+ contribution to this super interesting, in depth discussion of technique, meaning, and place in society. I apologize greatly for sullying this profound and enlightening thread with my posts about filters. I shall now an hero.Please, keep the board educated you brilliant scholar-warriors!
>>3512497>people are now budgerigars, can't walk past a mirror without a shriek of recognition>time for a snapshit!>hmm pic of the view? nah>another selfie? nah>gotta do something wild and new and different but also the same as everyone else!>put life in danger on some precipiceThis is what normies DO.
>>3512659>>3512660You won't stop spamming... And will even ask people to contribute to your stupidity by arguing with you? Seriously kys already...Liked following bunch:>>3511786>>3511789>>3511810>>3511837>>3511842>>3511850Last one's a proof nobody knew a thing about making a photobook. You do not place centre composition on a two spread!
>>3512648>multiple anons having a harmless conversation about UV filters on an anonymous board>TV-THERE'S ONLY ONE STUPID DICK MONOLOGUING H-HERE>THINKING THAT MAKES ME FEEL JUSTIFIED BECOMING UPSET ABOUT IT>IT'S ALL S-SPAMTime to get some cope about your pointless UV filter purchases buddy.
>Bitches about contributing to the thread>posts this>>3512665>Last one's a proof nobody knew a thing about making a photobook. You do not place centre composition on a two spread!Which is the same point as>>3511910>A decent portrait, but>>printing one image over 2 pages>Why? Way to instantly ruin your image.Fuck, at least the uv filter talk is good, useful information for people who don't know what a waste of money they are.

>>3511818There is literally nothing going on between this kid's ears, is there?So goddamn beige and boring"I was on the cover.... so much fun" I hate this man lmao
>>3512666>>3512674There is no discussion at all, you somehow think that if you repeat your nonsense argument ten time it'll have validity. Whatever was in discussion was answered in two posts right at the start, yet you keep repeating same exact things for ten posts after that, like some crazy expert that will save everyone ten years of his life, if you're listened to. That's a sure way to kill any thread, and something you should hang for. It's always fucking gearfags, I mean start a filter thread if you wish to shitpost same two moronic posts into infinity until it's full. I'm sure you'll find like minded moron that will argue with you.
There are some more pictures, since I haven't shared the family pics. I'll share some more when I get to my computer.Meanwhile... Yeah, filters....
>>3512800I wasn't repeating it ten times, it was a conversation between me and maybe two or three other anons, some of them known namefags. So you basically burst into the middle of a conversation and shouted that there's one person ranting about UV filters which is just your retarded perception of events that you're seeing because you're buttblasted that you wasted money on snake oil filters. For reference>>3512535>>3512614>>3512619>>3512624>>3512659Was me. So about quarter of them. Y'know, like a real conversation where people talk back and forth about a subject. Faggot.
>>3512800Look at you continuing to not discuss the images!Fact of the matter is that there's nothing to discuss with them. Maybe in a decade or so he'll do something interesting, but yeah I guess. They're pictures. For fuck's sake retard, you want to talk about them and all you could come up with is "YOU DON'T LAY OUT A PICTURE ACROSS THE FOLD". >That's a sure way to kill any thread, and something you should hang for. No it's not you aspie. Organic conversations bounce from topic to topic. I don't know about the other anons talking about the filters, but I'd said all I wanted to say. We were done. Then you come in and spas out over nothing, and look at where we're at. Look at what you've done to the conversation by not just saying what you wanted to about the pictures.
>>3512848I'd appreciate them. They're amongst the better ones.
Can we put together a Brooklyn Beckham Photo Challenge? Like we can put together a list of 10 photo scenarios found in his book, like this one for example >>3512060 one photo taken at a skatepark. And then have people pick five scenarios that they want to shoot to prove that they're a better photographer than Brooklyn Beckham.
The pictures that are cut and obliterated by the spine of the book are always upsetting. Whoever made that design choice should be shot.
>>3513014Sure you show us how it's done
>>3513015It's not bad in all cases. Often the subject stays on one page uninterrupted, while part of the background extends onto the other.This one was pretty good >>3511799These two look interesting in this way, too >>3511800 >>3512085Here the cut is not an issue either >>3511796 >>3511818 >>3511824 >>3512054 >>3512063 >>3512069 >>3512083This one could even work as two photos >>3512087
>>3513019It's just a pet peeve of mine sorry :3
>>3513018It's called gutter design, and it can be used to good effect.
Oh, didn't see. >>3513019 Explains it well. It's proper science in itself.
So not to sound jelly but this kind of reminds me of the big ass Kubrick photography book in that when you get access to certain places due to prestige you can get nice shots. This kid is a son of celebs...you think anyones going to confront this shit when hes up in your face taking photos? Unlike Kubrick however he has no fucking talent...some of the better photos were taken by other people...fuck even posh spice can frame better than this lil cunt. Anyway..hilarious thread. Thanks OP!
family picsthis one is at the beginning of the book
>my little sister harper was not a fan of fishing>she decided to wait in the car
another two fold
honestly, theres a magnitude of difference between the family pics and the rest.some of these are actually really good portraits.
more garbage real quick.I'll make sure to post everything else, all for /p/then i'll make a /crit/ thread with my a6000 snapshits
>014>we have a family tradition of going to napa, california>it's so beautiful and we love it there>i took this of my brother when we were chilling by the pool>cruz just being cruz
The difference between his family photos and the rest makes it feel like he's fucking with us
thats a 5d
>>3513102I hadn't really compared then, by overlooking them a couple of times I could tell there was a difference.Looking at them now it REALLY stands out.
sweet captionshould we reach out to Brooklyn on social media and have him do an ama in /p/?that would break this board
>035>adorable kids in kenya>such an inspiring place
what's the image limit?
mirror selfie #21
>>3513095>with an led lightCan't bash that pic. I can that waterfall nonsense. What I find interesting is that he's getting these headlines of being completely clueless, but he is constantly using correct apertures. No bokehwhoring nonsense. Framing is all over the place, and he's extremely inconsistent with lighting and subjects, and overall very average and naive. But he must have picked few quality tips from someone quite early on.
we hit the image limit, another thread?there are a few more pics
>>3513132Sure why not
so basically "what I see" is just himself? how can one be so self absorbed is beyond me
Surprisingly some gems in this thing. Overall it's very bland, and not even that funny.Big props to op for posting.
>>3513522Ups, intended for the second thread.
>>3513106His family pics are really much much better. Guess he's just much better in shooting portrait then anything else (and fuck his stupid selfies)
I'll never understand why you guys get such a rise out of low quality cringe shit. It doesn't inspire me at all.
>>3513889I think he might literally have assburgers. It would explain why he's shit at taking photos of strangers but does an okay job shooting his own family.
>>3512234You forgot the name of Corey Feldman, the greatest artist of our time? For shame anon.
>>3513892Same reason people sometimes intentionally watch bad movies, amusement
>>3513917Could be he's got shit ton of family stuff, and he gets lucky. To be honest I'm quite envious of his family stuff, wish I was as good.
>>3512227Sadly this happens a lot. Frequently when two very attractive people have children together, the kids come out somewhere between ugly and average. It’s kinda sad
>>3513998>what is plastic surgery?
>>3513917>>3513984the old chestnut of a stopped clock being right twice a day etc>>3513296its a glimpse into the mind of someone with a complete lack of self awareness.how can someone dedicate a large portion of a book that's supposed to showcase their photographing ability or eye for aesthetics with fucking legit trash uncreative selfies is totally unhinged, i'd be afraid to even get near the guy in any proximity.
>>3511787>literally a blank pagejfc
>>3513095>I shot this on a Leica, high exposure>high exposureWhat does this even fucking mean? High ISO? He over exposed it? A slow shutter speed??
>>3514927God. For real? Ever heard of exposure compensation?
>>3515119Yeah, but who the fuck says "high exposure" instead of over-exposing?
His work is pretty mediocre but it is at least on par if not better than the average photos shared on this board.
>>3512253the dude in that pic was proven to not be his son, its some kid named Bryce Winkelmann
Thank you OP this was god's work and you did it
>>3511753This is a published book what the fuck.
>>3511849He's right by the edge and he still takes a picture of him and his leica like a fucking faggot. Jesus Christ.
>>3511756Because pseudo-deep individuals feel the need to put an affront to proper grammar and basic writing rules. That's how they reject the system. Weak fucks.
>>3511792wait wait hol up>flash photo>no camera flash in the photoThese aren't even mirror selfies, these are someone else's photos of him posing with the camera
>>3511834I really like the right one.
>>3511717Did he just got a book released because his father is famous?
>>3511776Holy fuck, I've seen people holding TLRs in wacky ways but this takes the cake
>>3511790You have some much, much nicer places in your own country friend, save yourself the money and go there instead.
>>3520872Publishing a book is not that hard. You can do it yourself.He's being talked about because his father is famous, not because he's any good. That's a whole different discussion.
